Carry-Books_300For an avid reader, there are few things worse than finishing a great novel without having your next book lined up. Luckily, there are plenty of solutions for that. These three ideas are free, easy, and sure to deliver a great option for your on-deck circle.

Keep your reading list and your wallet full by using Bookbub to find your next page-turner. Enter your e-mail address and your book preferences into your account, and the service will send you a daily e-mail newsletter with free or discounted e-books available on your specified digital reader. Many of these discounts or freebies are only offered for a limited time, so be sure to act fast.

Loved the last book your read? Enter the book’s title into the Bookish.com engine and you’ll find more than a dozen recommendations for similar works. You can even add up to four books at a time to find a read tailored exactly to your interests.

No-Obligation Book Club
Come read with us! Every month, a Real Simple staffer suggests four books that he or she thinks the book club should tackle, and then our readers vote for their favorite. The same staffer will then lead a month-long discussion of the most popular choice. Want to read along? It couldn’t be easier–just jump in! Here’s how to vote for our April book, and here’s where we’ll post the most recent discussion (you can also sign up for an e-mail reminder or an RSS feed if you’d like). For even more suggestions, see all of the nominees and winning books since the club’s inception in 2008.

Do you have a foolproof way on finding great new (or new-to-you) books? If so, please share your secret in the comments.

    The best read: Re-reading a book (usually one forced 2 read when younger) at a different passage of your life. A true luxury. Guess I am quaint in that I like 2 read actual books. If traveling a lot Would Love to e-read but since I don’t I like 2 go 2 library. Its free and can renew as often as I want & can find those classics.

    Many people turn to the internet for book recommendations, but don’t forget about the library! Librarians are trained to help you discover books and are better than any algorithm.
