Ever discover a series and wonder in just what order to read the books? The books themselves often neglect to list them, or,  they’ll  list them, but in some random order.

 The library catalog, alas, doesn’t always list the actual volume number. Author websites are often so cluttered and junked up with graphics, it takes several clicks to get where you want to go.

FictFact Track Your Series is a great website for finding a simple listing of the titles in a series. (It also seems more up to date than another standby, KDL’s What’s Next?)

You can register if you want to be notified when books are released. You can also add book ratings and then browse through lists of the most popular series (Young Adult, Science Fiction, Paranormal are some of the many categories). If you find something you like, recommendations for  similar series are given. (One of my favorites is “Coffeehouse Mysteries.”)

You’ll find yourself losing track of time as you go from link to link and find more authors you want to check out.

    Thank you for this info. Since I read a lot of books that are part of series, this is very helpful for when the newest editions come out.
