Social Media Sites for Book Lovers
Social Media tailored to readers.
Discover new books and authors
Meet people with the same taste in books
There are multiple sites out there designed for readers to find and share their favorite books. The granddaddy of all these sites is Goodreads, and despite recent growing pains, it won’t be knocked off the throne anytime soon.
I’ve listed the sites in order of their Alexa ranking to give some objective reference for the number of people that use a site and the overall influence it has on the Internet. The lower the number the higher the impact. This order is based on numbers collected on 29 Sept 2013.
- Goodreads (275)
- LibraryThing (12,933)
- Shelfari (29,207)
- Bookcrossing (39,312)
- BookLikes (109,392)
- Riffle (265,980) If you like Pinterest, give this one a shot. They have a great visual interface. I see their popularity rising.
- Revish (347,692)
- Reader2 (568,812)
- Booklamp (1,044,787) This is another site that is brand new but has great potential. Home to the Book Genome Project, it is to books what Pandora is to music.
- BookRabbit (1,740,214)
