Goodreads.com is a website you can join, and then save lists of books you've read, categorize your favorites, make lists of what you own, what you've lent to friends...
Many people use it for recommendations as well. If you rate some books you've read, then the site will begin recommending books you may enjoy.
What's Next™: Books in Series Database of Kent District Library is a very useful tool in finding that next book in a series, or determining the order in which a series should be read. We use it often when patrons ask for help. Thanks, Kent District Library!
Fantastic Fiction is an online catalog of authors and books for those of us who love to read fiction. FF is unique in that the website is centered round authors rather than books. Each author has their own page so you can see at a glance everything they have written in the order in which they were published, plus any new or forthcoming books.
LibraryThing is an online service to help people catalog their books easily and keep track of what has been read.
You can access your catalog from anywhere—even on your mobile phone. Because everyone catalogs together, LibraryThing also connects people with the same books, comes up with suggestions for what to read next, and so forth. It can be totally private, or become a way to meet other readers online who enjoy your taste.
