WhichBook - A new way to choose where the reader is in control.
Searching book sites usually means keying in an author’s name or a book title. But if you know the name already, your search is likely to turn up books you’ve already heard about. No surprises there.
How about if you didn’t need an author name at all? If you could start with what you as a reader are looking for right now? You might be in the mood for a funny read, or something to make you think. Do you want a book that’s easy going or more of a challenge to get your teeth into?  Choose a book based on your mood and emotion!  

Fantastic Fiction :  Search and browse the complete works of over 50,000 bestselling fiction authors, with all the latest books and series listed in order.
