Online Social Networking for Book Lovers

Do your bookshelves look like this? Do you enjoy reading and love to share that joy with those around you? Are you looking for a fun way to interact with others who share your love of reading? If you answered yes to these questions, then online social networking sites dedicated especially to books and reading may be what you are looking for.

Online social networking sites are becoming increasingly popular. These sites function like an online community and bring together computer users who share the same interests. The increasing popularity of social networking is good news for book lovers because online social networking sites allow avid readers to discuss the books they love to read.

If you love books and have a passion for reading, then you will be aware that most bookaholics love to share the great new book they have found, tell their friends about a fantastic new author they have discovered or let the world know about a bestselling new release. The digital revolution has opened up many new avenues for book enthusiasts to connect, share and review anything to do with books and reading. You might like to try some of the following sites and join the ones which suit your need:

All these sites do basically the same thing, however, features vary from site to site. BookCrossing is a little different in that it has a unique way of sharing books. The BookCrossing website asks readers to leave a book 'on a park bench, a coffee shop, at a hotel on vacation. Share it with a friend or tuck it onto a bookshelf at the gym -- anywhere it might find a new reader! What happens next is up to fate, and we never know where our books might travel. Track the book's journey around the world as it is passed on from person to person'. BookCrossing is an exciting and fun way to share books because you just don't know where your book will end up or where you may find your next fantastic read.

Basically, these sites allow the user to:
  • catalogue their books
  • create personal profiles
  • get book recommendations
  • build book lists
  • rate, discuss and review books
  • interact with other people who share the same interests.
Online social networking is a fun way to widen your social circle, share great books and find new books to read and it can open up a whole new world of opportunities for the book lover. So, why not get started today! Or, if you already use some of these sites, let us know which is your favourite and why!
