Social Networking for Book Lovers
I have accounts on both LibraryThing.com and GoodReads.com. They are both fun to see what other people are reading, and I also use it as a place to keep track of what I have read. I have thought of using it as a reader advisory tool, too. I'm not a huge reader, so it could be a way to read reviews and see what people thought of books without reading them myself. I still think that's a good idea, but I'll be honest: I don't log into either site very often. I just forget! Every few months I go in and add a few titles to my list and poke around a bit. To be used as a reader advisory tool in a useful way, I really need to log in more often.
