Book Reviews and Discussions

There are many book discussion sites on the Web, some run by book sellers, others by book enthusiasts. Many are now published in blog format; Technorati has a useful search engine for finding such blogs if you search on appropriate keywords. A very large collection of links to literature sites of all kinds can be found at the Open Directory. Two social sites for sharing information about the books you own, and connecting with similar book fans, are LibraryThing and GoodReads. If you'd like to find or publicize face-to-face book discussions in your local area, the Reader's Circle website provides a useful listing service.

Research and Reference

This site is hosted by the University of Pennsylvania Libraries, which have links to many resources for online research. Some of the resources listed are not accessible by the general public, but many of them (those marked as "unrestricted access") are open to the world.
