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 read only mysteries without profanity, violence, or sex? Then Fussy will tell you only about cozy mysteries. Do you read only memoirs and gory horror novels? Fussy will confine her recommendations to those genres.
Fussy’s mission is to find you great books. This matchmaking service only bothers with the good stuff. Readers’ time is valuable, so Fussy strives to make sure every time you open one of her daily emails, you’ll find something you like. After all, there’s a reason the service is called The Fussy Librarian.
Fussy has 30 adult fiction and nonfiction categories, plus multiple ratings for language, violence, and sexual content. The database stores all that information and then lets you know only about books that match your preferences. If there aren’t any matches, you don’t get an email.
Sign up for free and Fussy will suggest books for you based on your interests and content preferences. It’s like getting handpicked books from your own personal librarian.
