Who is The Fussy Librarian?




The Internet has a lot of resources to help readers find ebooks, but none is quite like The Fussy Librarian. We've given readers more choices than ever at his website, which is like a matchmaking service for book lovers.

What is The Fussy Librarian?
We’re a daily ebook recommendation service that matches readers with books that they’ll love.

A lot of readers will say, “I already know what I like to read.” 
True, everyone has a list of favorite authors. But for each author on your list, I bet there are 50 more that you’d love – if you only knew about them. And perhaps your favorite author has a book on sale and you weren't aware.

So much has changed in just five years. The ebook never has to go out of print. Ever. Think about the implications of that. The number of choices out there is expanding rapidly and it’s only going to accelerate. Some of those books aren't very good, to be honest. That’s where we can help.

What's different about The Fussy Librarian? How does it work?
At its heart, the most important part of any book-recommendation website is "the match" -- are you going to receive tips about books that you’ll really like in your daily email? 

So we set out to create a better match than anyone else. We offer 40 genre choices – including seven categories in romance and seven in mystery/thriller. We're the only website that gives you content preferences regarding language, violence and sexual situations. If you like your novels without profanity, for example, all of your recommended books will be free of foul language. We also have "I read everything" buttons and some choices in the middle.

Who is this Fussy Librarian woman anyway? She's unlike any librarian I've ever heard of.
Don’t let the hair bun fool you. It turns out she's a master mechanic, an expert on French cooking, and she practices the ancient martial art of Bokator. You do not want to meet her in a dark alley, trust me.

But why is she so fussy?
That’s an excellent question. Like all superheroes, it probably goes back to her childhood.

You’re not going to tell me who she is, are you?
Heck, even I don’t know her true identity. I’m just grateful she’s using her talents for good and not, you know, bioengineering new Kardashians for reality television shows or creating WMD for North Korea.

  1. I haven't heard of this site. Sounds interesting though. I do already get more recommendations on a daily basis than I can handle, but I love checking out new options. I've signed up and cannot wait to see the recommendations!

  2. I’ve never heard of this site, either, but I’ll check it out. I love finding new authors that I didn’t even know about or know that I’d enjoy. I think it’s sad when people say they love to read an only read one or two authors :) But maybe I’m just fussy.

  8. Sounds really cool. I'm a little afraid to get more suggestions though! Haha, although I guess drowning in books isn't the worst thing that could happen ;)
