Read ‘em in order!

“What number is this in the series?”

That’s a question we get quite often at the information desks. Information about books in a series can be found in many places – our catalog is great – but I have my favorite place to look. Another library system, the Kent (Michigan) Library District, keeps a database of all things series. In the past, they published a book every year called “What’s Next” but now it is only online. You can search by author, series title, or book title, and there are lots of ways to limit. I love being able to type in “Patterson” and then pick James Patterson and then quickly see a list of every series he has written. So easy!
