If you're looking for a new author to read, want to make sure you get the next book in a series, or just enjoy browsing book information, the following sites are for you:
Fantastic Fiction - With brief biographies of more than 30,000 authors and information about 350,000+ books (including exact location in a series), this free site is highly recommended by our Circulation Staff.
Library Thing - Although this site is designed to be a social networking site for book lovers, it's a great place to find book recommendations. If you're also interested in joining (it's free), you can use it to maintain lists of books you've read, books you own, or a wish list for future reading.
Booklamp - this is part of the larger Book Genome Project, which attempts to describe "book DNA." Although the list of authors and titles isn't as extensive as Fantastic Fiction or Library Thing, it's a great place to find little-known authors and unique recommendations.
