Keep Track Of Your Favorite Series Fiction On eSequels!
Do you enjoy reading series fiction but are having trouble keeping track of those novels you’ve already read?
Would you like to discover new authors, or need ideas on what new fiction series to read?
Try eSequels – the online database guide to series novel fiction books, available through your Lorain Public Library System (LPLS).
Easily search the database for thousands of series fiction titles by the author’s name, book title, character’s name or the location of the novel. You can also search by a subject or keyword.
“It’s hard to keep track of which novels you haven’t read,” said Valerie Smith, LPLS public services coordinator. “This is a personalized reading list that you can print off and use like a shopping list when looking for new books to read.”
“It’s an excellent product that delivers for us. It’s cool,” Smith said.
Lorain Public Library System offers its patrons free access to this valuable database.
Connect to the eSequels online database through your Lorain Public Library System website.

The eSequels database includes a brief description of the author and a list of the author’s published series fiction with brief descriptions of each novel’s plot and the year of publication. If available, the database also offers the author’s website address.
The database strives to be current and lists the series in the correct reading order.
Included are mystery, feel-good or family oriented reads, romance fiction novels and more series fiction.
“This is good for those people who enjoy reading about the same characters in more than one book,” Smith said.
Allow this database to amplify your reading.
If you have a favorite series fiction author, this is a great place to check for novels you may have missed or find recently published works.
“It might clue you into a series of an author you may not have been aware of,” Smith said.
Use eSequels if you know what kind of topics, themes or subjects you prefer to read, but don’t know what author to read next.
Search the database for books on a particular location, vocation, hobby or subject such as books that include veterinarians as the main character.
Plus, you can suggest an author be added to the database list.
Keep in mind that this database does not include children’s books, short story collections or nonfiction books. The database focuses mostly on U.S. and British authors’ novels, but does include some international authors’ books translated into English.
“This database will definitely spark ideas if you don’t know what to read next,” Smith said.
