Just Read is a come-as-you-are, read-what-you-like online book club and so much more!

This monthly online book club is genre or theme based. Each month, a new genre or theme will be announced and your participation will be on your own and through social media.

Whether you are already an avid reader or want to be, whether you are looking for recommendations or know what you like, whether you are reading for you or reading to someone, Phoenix Public Library is here to help with a little inspiration.

Read what you like and be accountable to yourself.   

Each month, we will announce a book club genre or theme on our website. Read what you like within this genre or theme. Participate throughout the month by posting on social media, tagging Phoenix Public Library and #justreadppl to share, discuss and recommend your book choice.  Or, follow along on your own without posting on social media – it's all good! Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube or visit our website for more about the Just Read online book club.

It's summer reading time, readers!

Whatever you read, be sure to log your minutes and play the summer reading game. Now through August 1. Learn more.

"History never really says goodbye. History says, 'See you later.'"

- Eduardo Galeano

July's theme is Historical Fiction

A genre that blends the best of two very popular worlds is historical fiction. Readers satisfy their desire to travel through time and they get a story straight from the author's imagination sprinkled with actual historical details of a time and place that truly existed. Check out our recommendations for all types of historical fiction for a great summer read that both gives you an escape and gives you a feel for a moment in history.
