If you're a book-lover, you know that perhaps one of the the worst thing you can experience is a lost book, especially if you can't remember enough about the book to find it again. But how can you find a book you've forgotten completely? A new online tool called Stump the Bookseller might be able to help you.
The brainchild of Cleveland's Loganberry Books, Stump the Bookseller offers users support from the booksellers and their community of readers to help find lost books. Submitting a Book Stumper is easy: just write the best description of the book you can, give it a punchy title, and send it in, along with a nominal fee of $4. Your Book Stumper will go live on the Stump the Bookseller blog, and your fellow book nerds will get to work, trying to find the book you've lost. Loganberry Books says that their service "ha[s] a nearly 50% success rate in finding these long lost but treasured books," so you don't have anything at all to lose, really.
If you don't have $4 to spend, there are still plenty of ways for you to find a book you've forgotten, like Reddit's whatsthatbook subreddit. This can be a lifesaver for readers who need to find one book or book series in particular. Check out five of their recent success stories below.
