In a time of increasing readers’ advisory services in our libraries (public and school libraries, at least), free online tools that help our users are valuable commodities. For however wonderful people think NoveList, What Do I Read Next, and other online subscription services are, the reality is that many libraries cannot afford to subscribe to these services. For those folks, I have a whole list of favorite sites (forthcoming in a future LiB post, I swear). For now, take a gander at FictionDB.com. Last month it was relaunched with free access to its fiction book database with over 50,000 book lists and 200,000 titles. The site also offers a select number of series lists, summaries, and more. This is definitely rising toward the top of that list of mine.
