Reader's Resources

Recommended Reading

NoveList provides access to information on 155,000 fiction titles and offers a wide range of feature content including author read-alikes, book discussion guides, reading lists and more.

Sites for Readers

Goodreads is the world's largest site for readers and book recommendations. Our mission is to help people find and share books they love. You can use Goodreads to see which books your friends are reading; track thr books your're reading, have read, or want to read; check out your personalized book recommendations; or find out if a book is a good fit for you from the community's reviews.

FictFact will keep track of the books you're reading and give you a list of the books you need to read next. You'll be able to find users with similar tastes, tag books and series, and get recommendations on other book series. We'll even email you the week that books you're following come out. All for free.

LibraryThing is an online service to help people catalog their books easily. You can access your catalog from anywhere — even on your mobile phone. Because everyone catalogs together, LibraryThing also connects people with the same books, comes up with suggestions for what to read next, and so forth. It is a full-powered cataloging application, searching the Library of Congress, all five national Amazon sites, and more than 690 world libraries. You can edit your information, search and sort it, "tag" books with your own subjects, or use the Library of Congress and Dewey systems to organize your collection. If you wish, LibraryThing is also an amazing social space, often described as "Facebook for books." You can check out other peoples' libraries, see who has the most similar library to yours, swap reading suggestions and so forth. LibraryThing also makes book recommendations based on the collective intelligence of the other libraries.

WorldCat is the world's largest library catalog, helping you find library materials online.

Fantastic Fiction includes bibliographies for over 30,000 authors and information on over 350,000 books. Search by author or by book. Find read-alikes, upcoming releases, award winners, and series.
