Online Resource: FictFact for Series Reading

Are you a fan of reading books in a series?  Do you attempt to keep track of them in any way?  Do you know when new books in the series are released?  If you are a series reader, I have got the greatest resource for you that I just discovered thanks to Bryan of Still Unfinished!


FictFact is a FREE online resource, designed specifically to keep track of your series reading.  You can track where you are in a series, the order of the books in a series, and even get the latest news of the series books that have yet to be released.  You can search for series by author or by series title.  You can view a book release calendar or find new-to-you series by searching by most popular.

Personally, I am in the midst of so many different series that I have lost track.  I use Goodreads for my own personal collection as well as books that I am interested in reading.  However, I do not feel it is convenient in keeping track of where I am in a series.  I have only recently signed up for my own personal account at FictFact, but I am so very excited to finally get organized and caught up on some of my series reading!  I think this is the website to help me do just that!

Have you discovered FictFact yet?  Are you a series reader?  How do you track your series?  What book-ish websites do you use to keep organized or track your reading?

  2. I like FictFact, though I think it would be even better with a more social component to it.

    1. Becca Lostinbooks ... I'm okay without the social component, honestly. I get that on Google+, Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads!! I just want to keep track of my series!!

  3. I don't read too many series, but I have to share this with my school librarian. I've seen her keeping track of all the series in a notebook and this would be so much easier!

  4. I have discovered it! :) And yes, I'm a series reader. Yep, that's how I track it. That's basically it to keep track of series and Listography and Google Plus to keep track of reading otherwise.

    Unlike Rebecca, I don't think I need a social component...when I'm just keeping track for myself. I do share, though, on my blog and on the Book Bloggers Do It Better community on Google Plus.

    1. Bryan ... LOL!! You inspired this post!! In fact, I saw a series missing and put in a request to add it to the database. They replied to me and added the series within 24 hours. I was very impressed!!

      And, I agree with you about the social component. I get that elsewhere. I will just be using it to keep track of my series reading.
