For the love of books!
What is wonderful about social networking is virtually gathering with a group of interesting people and discussing interesting things. If you love book clubs, talking about the latest novel or self help book you have read, then the below sites are perfect for you. Explore, poke around, find a niche of people who celebrate books as much as you do.
If any of these sites are no longer working, please let me know. I try to keep track of them, but life can get in the way.
Anobii.com – a social networking site for book lovers
BookCrossing.com – A community of users from over 130 countries who exchange books with each other at public places like cafes, parks etc.
