    • One of our favorite sites is the link to GNOOKS. You can play with the literature map by entering a favorite author and then the page fills with authors that either write like your favorite author or write on the same subject matter. Barbara

  1. This is a very useful new page on the website. I have already used both best sellers lists and the What’s Next: Books in a Series.

  2. Just finished “Die Again”, Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles Series, Book 11 by Tess Gerritsen. Wow, kept me guessing right until the end, any more information would need a Spoiler Alert notice!
