There is a new tab on your profile page. The “Read” tab will display the last 10 books you marked as read. You can also quickly see any book ownership settings you have added to the books. These link over to the book report. Click the “View All” button to see the whole list in descending order.
New feature on Next Book List – Move to bottom!
Since we launched the new site, we have received several requests for the ability to move series to the bottom of the next book list.
This feature is now available! You can now immediately move a series to either the top or the bottom of your list using the menu options when you hover over the series.
You can also continue to drag and drop the series to change the order.
Introducing the New FictFact!
After lots of hard work and development we’re proud to show off the new version of FictFact! You now have a chance to preview the new design of FictFact before we go live in October.
Here are a few new features we added:
- Series ratings- Now you can see an average rating of the books in a series.
- Next book on author and series page – quickly view your next book on the individual author and series pages.
- Coming soon on author page– quickly view all the books an author will release soon.
We have redesigned FictFact from the inside out. By taking this opportunity to make the insides of FictFact more efficient and easier to maintain, we have set ourselves up to add new features at a faster rate. We are very excited with this design and already have lots of great features planned. Our small team of volunteers love being able to provide you with a great series tracking tool and we are going to continue to make it better!
Please let us know what you think or if you run into any issues. While in beta, we are hoping to fix any last minute bugs.

Dear FictFact Users,
Did you know that FictFact is a completely self-funded website? We started FictFact in 2009 to help readers keep track of their series. I am an avid fiction series reader and could not find a website that did what I wanted. Since I am a web developer, I set off to build a site for myself. It turns out, lots of people found this site useful as well! We have grown over the years, and now need a little help from you. Please help us by making a donation through PayPal.
What would we do with these donations?
For starters, we need to make sure the servers are kept up and running. We want to provide the best experience possible with faster servers, unfortunately, these are not cheap. We would use donations to maintain the day to day costs of keeping the website going.
Right now, we have 3 volunteers who work on this in our spare time. Features, improvements, mobile apps, etc. are not really realistic in the few extra hours we have during the week. We would love to have at least one full time employee.
“Do you have a mobile app?” One of our most popular requests is to create a dedicated mobile app. With enough donations, we can start working on one! We also have a long, long list of things we want to add or improve. This includes printing, exporting series data, better communication between users, smarter recommendations… and on and on.
Get a Sticker!!
Everybody who donates at least $10 (or $15 internationally) will get one of our awesome stickers! They’re made from an industrial strength vinyl that’s designed to last. And, they come with a UV laminate that makes them fade, scratch and water resistant. We will mail a sticker to the address you use on the PayPal form.
Can’t donate? That’s OK… we have a few other ways you can help us out. One good way: shop on Amazon. We get about 8% of the revenue of all purchases made through our affiliate links to Amazon!
Thank you for all your support,
CEO of FictFact
We are hard at work on a brand new design for FictFact. We are improving the look and making things easier. Let us know what you think!
- Main navigation is moving to top to allow for more content on the page
- We are using Twitter’s Bootstrap to keep the design clean and modern
- Adding better information about your books and series throughout the site (such as ratings and book ownership)
- Improving search
- And much more…
