Name that Book

Have you forgotten the name of a book you once read? This group is here to help you find it again.

Start your book search by clicking on the Post a new topic option and...

(1) Enter a helpful Subject line that includes a genre and a clue.

Long subject lines are cut off, so it's wise to keep to keywords. For example:

YA Ghost story
SciFI Boy lost in space
Mystery set in Iceland
Poem about a woman's garden
Children's series about circus children

Many members of this group only open topics we think we can help with, so your subject line is important for getting the right people to read your post — the ones who probably know your book!

Words like 'Help' or 'Find this book' or 'Search' are not helpful in a subject line and should be avoided.
(2) Enter all the book detail you remember in the Message block.
This is your place to put detailed information that could help to identify your book. This may be information like:

Fiction or nonfiction
Plot
When you think it was written or when you read it (10 years ago; about 1970...)
Book's intended audience
Anything else you remember about the title, author, illustrations, cover, characters, setting, binding, or size of book

It's easier for members to read your message if you use standard spelling, capitalization, and punctuation, along with breaking longer sections into paragraphs.
(3) Check back for responses!
Members post their suggestions directly to your topic (so no e-mail addresses, please). Some books are found quickly, while others are found after time and discussion of similar books.

If your query is not solved in a few days, please feel free to comment on your own topic in order to bump it back to the top of the list. And please, we'd love to hear back from you on whether or not we've found your book, especially when we want to read it too!

If your query is solved, feel free to add the solved title information to your original topic comment. This will help anyone else who's looking for your same book! -- Book found: [Title] by Author
Visit the group's WikiThing page for more suggestions for finding your book and for a list of Frequently Sought Stories.
