Web 2.1 - Site of the Week

Name: Book Glutton

NTRLS Technology Consultant Judy Daniluk referred me to this site. It is a really neat site that allows people to create, or join, an online book club. What makes this site different than other online book clubs is that you read the book online with your other book club members. The online reader is actually quite good. Through the reader, you can schedule times to chat about the book and even make annotations as you read the book to share with your other book club members. Authors might find it a great tool as you can upload your own work and then make it available to everyone to read. The site states that your copyright will be protected, but the books will be publicly available on the site so keep that in mind before you upload your masterpiece. I personally do not see myself using this site very much as I still like the feel of a book in my hands. If you don't mind reading material on the computer, this is a great social networking site for book lovers.
