I love Booklikes.com. I hopped over there after Amazon purchased Goodreads, since I didn’t like the idea of the monster retailer using the site to gather reader data. Booklikes.com continues to grow and to add features every week. They are responsive to readers and lovely to deal with. You can look up reviews, follow people whose opinion you like, share book info on blogs… it’s fun and informative. I have found a number of terrific books — like Anthony Marra’s THE CONSTELLATION OF VITAL PHENOMENON — which otherwise I might have missed.
Look for me there and follow me if you like. I’ll receive notification that you’ve done so, and then can follow you as well.
Recently they asked me to do an author interview, and I must say, they asked some really interesting questions. They’re posting it in two parts, but the first part is up now. If you’d like to read it, please click here.
I’ll post the link to the second part of the interview when it’s up in a week or so.
