What comes next? Updated

LH book shelves

It used to be that most of the series books were listed in a big thick book that I loved to get off the shelf and read through at the library. I don’t even know if that same book is still in print, but you can now find much of the same information online. Below is my list of favorite websites for finding out what comes next in a series. If I missed one you like to use, please let me know.

I had enough additions since I posted the original version of this that I thought it was time to post it again as a clean copy. To find notes about where I got suggestions for additions from, check the bottom of the original post.
