A Free Personal Librarian?

As most of you have realized, free things all have some cost

My short novel, Notes from An Alien, is free (along with print and e-book paid editions) but it costs some concentration to read it and the theme’s not something that’s easy to accept

Free offers are attached to sites on the Internet that then cost you time in your e-mail box, even if all you’re doing is deleting constant free messages

Drug dealers used to say, “The first one is free.”……… librarian_insidepage

So, what’s with this Free Personal Librarian?

Apparently, she’s quite Fussy

Yes, all you have to do is give her your e-mail address and check a few boxes indicating your preferences.

Yes, she then sends you free e-book recommendations.

Yes, you then have to decide if you want to buy those e-books; though, it appears they’re all $5.99 or less.

Yes, authors can submit their books to The Fussy Librarian for possible inclusion in her recommendations.

Yes, you share your reading preferences by choosing what genres you like

Ah, genres!

I’ve had 5 posts about genre books on this blog and, yes, I’ve detailed some of the “costs” of being enamored with this way of pigeon-holing them

Yes, I gave The Fussy Librarian my e-mail address and will receive my first recommendations tomorrow—might even share what I think here

You can read The Legend of The Fussy Librarian and you might just have a laugh or two.

And, The Fussy Librarian has a blog.

Finally, I feel I should be fussy about my presentation of this site on my blog by quoting The Fussy Librarian’s raison d’être:

“Once upon a time, books did something called ‘going out of print’. The publisher decided to stop printing new copies and readers had to scour garage sales for a used copy. It was like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

“Then the ebook came along. Not only would new books live forever, but old titles could be purchased as well. In no time at all there were millions of books available to readers … who soon developed headaches sifting through it all.

“A few people tried to solve the problem but no one really figured it out – until now.

“The Fussy Librarian is the first website to match readers not only with the genre of books they like but also their preferences about content. Do you only read mysteries without profanity, violence and sex? Then we’ll tell you only about cozy mysteries. Read just memoirs and gory horror novels? No problem.

“We also only bother with the good stuff so you know you’ll see great reads every time you open our daily email. There’s a reason we’re called The Fussy Librarian, after all.”

Feel like giving The Fussy Librarian a try?
