Why Flashlight Worthy Exists

Amazon sells every book in print, but the choice can be overwhelming. Flashlight Worthy is here to help:

  • We don't list the best selling books — we list the best books.
  • We don't list 6,072 results when you search for John Irving (including 251 versions of Garp!) — we list only his best books just once.
  • We don't make you hunt around for hours to find the very best books on parenting — we do the work for you.

Flashlight Worthy is nothing but thoughtful, hand-picked recommendations...
Organized into hundreds of useful, interesting, fun lists...
And all we do is books. :)


How You Can Help Us

Flashlight Worthy is a labor of love. There's just two of us, but we try to add new lists when we can. We hope, someday, that we earn enough nickels and dimes to let us spend more time on Flashlight Worthy. If you like what we're doing, you can show your support by taking the pledge.


Add Your Lists to Flashlight Worthy

Is one of our lists missing a book? Have an idea for a list we should add?

We welcome your contributions to Flashlight Worthy. Just send us email.

Of course we'll give you credit and if you have an appropriate web site, we'd be glad to link to you.


Who We Are & Thanks to...

We're Peter Steinberg and Eric Mueller (who also runs a site for discounted villa rentals on St. John, US Virgin Islands), and we both love to read very, very much.

Flashlight Worthy is equal parts Peter's idea, Eric's coding, the suggestions of the Flashlight Worthy community, and the support of friends and family.

Thanks to everyone who's contributed anything from a book title to a full-blown list and thanks to Hal, Karen, Sim, Tristan, MB, Ernie, and Amanda for their early and continuous support.

Finally, thanks for reading this far, but wouldn't you rather be exploring our lists?
