Regina Osiecki | 260 comments I'm asking around on different sites about this particular book that I can't remember the name of, this one included. Are there any go to forgotten book query sites in addition to this one, loganbooks stump the bookseller, and library thing that are popular for this sort of thing? I figure the more resources I have the better chance I have of finding what the book is called.

SamSpayedPI | 2070 comments I'm not familiar with any others than the three you name where other people help you find your book. However, I've often had a lot of luck, if there is an unusual name or phrase in the book (e.g. "Lillybell"), searching in "text contents" at The Internet Archive.
