Favorite Websites

 

There are so many good websites out there that have helped my with my Reader’s Advisory.  So I’ll just get started:

What’s Next.

Kent District Library in Michigan has put together a database that will search a series by entering the author’s name.  The results are in the series order.

FictFact

Similar to What’s Next but 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. Whenever a book series you’re following comes out, they will email you to let you know.

Overbooked       

Overbooked is a resource for readers of fiction. It provides starred lists from such review publications as Kirkus, Publisher’s Weekly and Library Journal. It does not give any info on ebooks.  Overbooked was the winner of the 2008 Louis Shores – Greenwood Publishing Award: to recognize excellence in book reviewing and other media for libraries.
