Online Social Networking for Book Lovers!

Looking to share your love of reading with likeminded Consider these 3 social networking websites centered around books! You can review books, read recommendations, catalog your personal library, and more!

Check out goodreads! From their website-

Have you ever wanted a better way to:

  • Get great book recommendations from people you know.
  • Keep track of what you've read and what you'd like to read.
  • Form a book club, answer book trivia, collect your favorite quotes.

There's also Shelfari:

Welcome to Shelfari! Shelfari is the premier social network for people who love books. Create a virtual shelf to show off your books, see what your friends are reading and discover new books - all for free!

From their website, you can take a virtual tour of the site.

I am a fan of Librarything:

  • A home for your books.
  • Enter what you’re reading or your whole library. It’s an easy, library-quality catalog.
  • A community of 1,000,000 book lovers.
  • LibraryThing connects you to people who read what you do
