In one of the threads here, Valli and I both commented on how much time we spend looking for those great books. That got me to wondering just how many sites we all use to do that.  Here are some of mine:

Fantastic Fiction

Tangled Web - UK Crime and Mystery

Historical Novel Society

Historical Fiction Network



Historical Novel Society

Amazon (of course)

Then there are all those other places we check, browse, shop as well as record what we've read:

Goodreads; Shelfari; Fictfact; Library thing; Fetchbooks; BCO; BookDepository; e-Bay; our local libraries, etc.

Come on, I know there's more.......... tell me. This is most likely going to be mind boggling!


How in the heck do we have time to READ????

I use Historical Novel Society a lot, Fantastic fiction, Tanzanite's great thread at HFO, HistoricalNovels.info is fabulous, and I like to check out sites like Book Browse and Booklist Online. Oh, and amazon, of course. Really though, my searches for books can lead me all over the place.

I don't go far: here and historicalfictiononline.  I sometimes follow links from these sites to blogs and other sites, but I confine my hauntings to these two sites.  Y'all keep my TBR, WL, and RL more than full. :)

I use several mentioned here, but there are 2 others not mentioned.  Passages to the Past  blog by Amy and The Bookreporter which is a email newsletter I receive about once a week.

Which site is your fav for listing books by author's name? I have lots to enter into some site. I tried GOOD READS and it was ok, but I am hoping for something that is QUICK.

I PM"d you, Mary. Since I'm not real good at keeping up with entering and reviewing books I've read, I have found the site that Alice suggested (Alice - it was you, wasn't it?) "FictFact.com to be pretty easy and I find that I'm doing pretty good keeping up with my books there!yes
