Community description:Identifying forgotten book titles and authors based on details of plot, characters, cover art, etc.
This community reunites people with the books they've lost!

The concept is simple: If you've lost a book (short stories, plays, or poems are also fine), post an entry with as much information as you can, and community members will try to help you locate your book.

Most entries follow this basic format:

I read this book a long time ago, and it was about [a unicorn and a maiden/a boy who discovers he's a wizard/a cat who solves a mystery]. [Then follows as many details of the plot as the poster can dredge out of their memory.] Does anyone know what book I mean? Thanks!

The more details of the plot and/or characters you can provide, the better, and it also helps if you know when and where (including country) you read it. Even things like 'it may have been published by Scholastic' or details of illustrations or cover art can be useful! Try not to say 'I read it in sixth grade' without letting us know how long ago that was - we don't know how old you are. :)

We do have a 'found book' tag and a 'lost book' tag. If at all possible, please edit your post to say 'this is the book' when it has been identified; however, please do not delete your original description of the lost book or add strike-throughs to the text! Other members of the community may be seeking the same book, and your post may help them identify it.

Cuts are not mandatory except for explicit descriptions, but most people use them for very long posts and any possible spoilers, as well.

When posting, please make certain that your post is submitted as public, rather than friends-locked or otherwise filtered. Also, please do not override the default font in postings to this community, and please leave comments unscreened.
