Novelist (call your library for your PIN)
NoveList is a comprehensive readers' advisory solution for fiction lovers. With its intuitive interface and extensive proprietary content, NoveList will help you to answer the question of what to read next.

New York Times Book Review

What’s Next?
This website provides bibliographies of series fiction books. The database allows searching by author, book title, or series title.

BookMovement allows book clubs to suggest good books and has reviews, private lists, discussion questions and author links.

A resource for ravenous readers, special efforts are made to alert readers to books that they may not become aware of via other book-related resources.

Fantastic Fiction
Bibliographies for over 30,000 authors. Information on over 350,000 books.

Teacher Book Wizard
A Scholastic site that searches the publisher’s archive by interest and grade, reading level, book type, topic/subject, genre/theme, reading motivation program, and language.  Also makes suggestions from a title on books of the same reading level.

JacketFlap connects you to the work of more than 200,000 authors, illustrators, publishers and other creators of books for Children and Young Adults. The site is updated daily and members include published authors and illustrators, librarians, agents, editors, publicists, booksellers, publishers and fans.
while most online book stores proudly offer in excess of 2 million books, browsing and searching for a book without a title or author in mind is very difficult. We started YourNextRead to make discovering, buying and enjoying a book as simple as finding your next film or band.

What Should I Read Next?
Enter a book you like and the site will analyse our database of real readers' favorite books (more than 75,000 different titles so far, and more than a million reader recommendations) to provide book recommendations and suggestions for what to read next.

Database of Award Winning Children's Literature
has indexed more than 8,400 children’s titles, across 101 awards since 1997.  Users can search by books by selected age of reader, format, setting, historical period, setting, language, format, genre, multicultural connections, gender, author, title, publication year, or specific award.
A scale interface allows users to determine how happy, funny, optimistic, short, or sexy you’d like your next read to be. Or you may choose to use the character, plot, setting interface.


Enter what you're reading or your whole library—it's an easy, library-quality catalog. LibraryThing also connects you with people who read the same things.
Get great book recommendations from people you know. Keep track of what you've read and what you'd like to read. Form a book club, answer book trivia, collect your favorite quotes.
