Since starting my own book blog, I've definitely been exposed to the world of online bookies. I thought I'd share some cool resources I've discovered (though they are nowhere near new to the rest of the community) with my friends here at Books Are My Heroine.
Goodreads is basically the motherload of all websites for the book-obsessed. Like an exclusive Facebook for book lovers, you can create your own profile, adding books to your "shelves" that you've read, are currently reading, or want to read next. From there you can connect with other readers via groups, meet authors on their Goodreads pages, create lists of your "must-reads" and read reviews on thousands of books. You can find me under Heroine Addict -- send me a friend request!
Crazy For Books is also another good resource for thorough reviews and ideas for what to read next. Its also the home of a great network of "Blog Hops", for any of you fellow bloggers. The idea is that, much like a bar hop (oh-so familiar here on campus...), you connect with other bloggers by reading each other's blogs. Crazy For Books hosts them each week, I believe, but as I've learned, sign up early for a spot.
I'm slowly learning to navigate the new world of blogging, so bear with me!
