My RA course asked me to select two resources to use for the program from their lists of general resources and genre-specific resources.
From the list of general resources, I chose NPR Books - mostly because I felt that choosing Goodreads was something of a cheat since I already had an account there. (I do realize that I don't make nearly enough use of it, and that's something I'm also trying to rectify.) I also made that selection because of NPR's general reputation of being thorough and thoughtful, and can't imagine their Books section being different from that.
Selection of a genre resource was a little more straightforward. I already enjoy reading SF/F and romance works, and while I don't read much mystery/suspense I'm not a complete stranger to the genre. Urban fiction is definitely something I've never read in and have no experience with, so it made sense to choose one of those options. After looking at them both, I selected the website Street Fiction.
