online resource for selecting and reviewing books; etc.

Post by lisamarch on Mon Mar 10, 2008 9:02 pm

I've been on goodreads.com for a few months now. You can keep a list of what books you want to read, what books you are reading, and what books you have read, and you can review the books you've read. And, you can invite friends to the site and share ideas. When they have updated their lists, you get an email to see what they've added (they find out when you've posted, too). It's a great way to find new books to read, make friends, etc.

Thanks for that tip Lisa....
Here are some others....Busy parents looking for something to read other than children's books? There are some great websites to help you out! Check out Springfield Moms contributor Holly Schurter's blog with the never-ending list of book recs on her bookstack. Click here.
A clever website is www.literature-map.com where you enter your favorite authors, and it gives you a virtual map of authors of similar writing style or try www.whatshouldireadnext.com
Have a lot of used books that are looking for a new home? Donate to one of our local public libraries! Or for the swap savvy, try out www.novelaction.com where you can mail up to a dozed used books (costs about $4 media mail) to them and they will mail you 12 "new" books in return.
