Many of us have fond memories of a favorite childhood book that we would love to revisit if we could remember the name of the book's title or author. Stump the Bookseller is a project by Loganberry Books, a bookstore in Cleveland, Ohio, dedicated to such mysteries. Here, visitors are invited to explain what they can remember about a book and include tidbits like, "I read this book between 1958 and 1964," and, "it was an old-looking book then, and was not specifically a children's book, more in the style of Lord Dunsany or William Morris." From here, visitors are invited to help the individual identify the book they are looking for. Individuals need to pay a small fee to post a query, but anyone can comment on queries or browse the site's archives for free. Queries are tagged with categories including anthology, picture book, mystery, and fantasy for easy browsing. Visitors also may want to start by viewing queries that have been successfully answered, which are tagged as solved.
