    I really appreciate this site. It can be so confusing trying to read a favorite authors books in order. It is wonderful to be able to go to a site and have the answers and so much more available

    I particularly like the search by character. One can often remember the character but not the author. Or remember the author but not sure what series includes the character you are looking for.

    All in all a great site

      Thanks! Due to the sheer number of characters or series, we unfortunately can’t add all of them without being lackadaisical about it, but we do our best!
