Simply Held

Want the hottest new release from your favorite author? Want to stay current with a celebrity book club? Love nonfiction and fiction? You should join Simply Held!

Choose from over 50 bestselling authors. Never miss a book by your favorite author again! You can select however many authors you would like.

We offer nonfiction books too! Biographies, cookbooks, social justice, and true crime titles are chosen four times a year by your librarians and are automatically placed on hold for you! We also offer four fiction picks: diverse debuts, graphic novel, historical fiction, and international fiction. These are chosen on the same schedule as the nonfiction titles.

You can also join a celebrity book club: Reese Witherspoon's book club, Jenna Bush Hager's Read With Jenna book club, and Oprah Winfrey's book club!

We also have a Simply Held eNewsletter that you can sign up to receive.

If there are any authors that you want to recommend, click over to the online form and add your favorite author to the bottom. We review suggestions annually.
