Great book info web site!

Thought I'd share a helpful book-related web site I found...

On this site, you can find a list of books by a particular author in chronological order -- helpful if you want to read a series in order, or see what else you might like to read by an author you've discovered.

It also shows books that are coming soon from the author -- in hardback and in paperback. (Unfortunately, I didn't see Kindle versions listed. Since the site is a UK site, that might not be a high priority.)

In a very organized format, it also includes a brief author bio, list of books by type (fiction, non-fiction, collections, etc.), awards earned by the author, links to the author's web site(s), and books recommended by the author.

Here's the URL:

http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk


Enjoy!

I've moved the thread to the Deals, Freebies and Resources Section because this is a resource, and is not specifically about the Kindle.
I also use the fantasticfiction site quite often.

I also use fantasticfiction quite a lot. It's so helpful to find out what order a series is in.

These sites have been posted before, but another fun book site is http://www.literature-map.com/

lets you look for authors that write in a similiar vein.

In my opinion the FantasticFiction site is much better than the Wiki - it's better controlled and doesn't hand out SPOILERS like a casino hands out free drinks.

The Wiki can spoil your read if you're not careful.

Thanks for this link, Leep. I regularly buy books to send to my Mom, and I have run out of books by some of her favorite authors. I can hopefully find her some new favorite authors. Karma to you!

http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk is by far the best site of this type (IMHO). I refer to it all the time to get the correct order for books in a series, for example.

That's where I go to get the covers for some ebooks that don't come with them.

I pay for the ebook and I don't even have a cover! Although the stores' sites usually show a cover... :/
