    This is a cool website. I like seeing how an author’s writing progresses, and it’s nice to see the characters’ development as well. In addition, I like that you make recommendations of other authors with similar writing styles or subject matter.

    I appreciate this site. I like to read series in order. Oftentimes if you don’t do so plot points can be confusing since they began in the previous book. It’s nice to have somewhere that lets you know which book is next.
