How to keep from getting lost in a book

Have you ever finished a great sci-fi or mystery or romance novel that was part of a series and then tried to find out which was the next one you had to read? It is often a giant pain in the butt. For whatever reason, lots of series novels are kinda bad at indicating where in the series they might fall, what came before it and what comes after. Have you had this problem? Is it just me?

Anyway, enter FictFact. They are a database of serial fiction that keeps track of that stuff for you. Just look up an author or series and voila. Oh hey, do you need to know what order you should read all your out-of-print Ellis Peters "Cadfael" novels? Done.

Shakespeare & Co. Fixing all life's problems for you.
