Taking Books Online – Websites For Readers

As books are moving away from the library and into the digital age, how can avid readers get involved online?

I’m proud to say that I’m a self proclaimed book worm. From a young age nothing has captured my attention more than my latest read. I’ve moved with the times and succumbed to purchasing an E-reader, which surprisingly I love and would highly recommend (See my blog on E-readers here). This is a great step in the right direction to keep literature alive.
However, I am disappointed in the lack of online social and review aspects for books, which swarms the Internet for other mediums. We’re all too familiar with sites such as IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes which help keep us up to date with the latest film releases, and browse reviews from users and critics. There is a stark contrast when it comes to books, but here are a few great places to start.
