My friend Deanna just told me about http://www.openlibrary.org. This is a website that aims to have information on every book ever published–and every author. It’s pretty amazing, as it culls information from Amazon.com, the Library of Congress database, etc.
I spent some time last night on my author page at openlibrary.org, then I worked on pages for my friends Jane Orcutt and Lois Leppard, uploading their bios and photos.
It’s an interesting place to browse, so in the future, if you need information on that book you read and loved as a kid, don’t forget to check http://www.openlibrary.org. You should be able to find it there!
