reading radar

Reading Radar is a nifty mashup that combines the New York Times Bestseller Lists with Amazon.com ratings. It allows the avid reader to view the lists but also get a sense of whether the book really is a great read or a case of buyer’s regret, as measured by Amazon.com customers.

After prowling Reading Radar, I came away thinking about other great tools for sharing thoughts on books, such as LibraryThing and GoodReads, taking a common reading experience, assigned reading, or reading for pleasure to a new venue for discussion. Perhaps this is a “plug-in” for the Big Blue Network!
