Goodreads - about When I was in second grade, I discovered the Hardy Boys series. Ever since, I've loved to read — both for fun and to improve my mind. And I'm always looking for the next great book. One afternoon while I was scanning a friend's bookshelf for ideas, it struck me: when I want to know what books to read, I'd rather turn to a friend than any random person or bestseller list. So I decided to build a website – a place where I could see my friends' bookshelves and learn about what they thought of all their books. Goodreads is that site. Knowledge is power, and power is best shared among readers. Otis Chandler CEO and Co-Founder

TasteKid | Recommends music, movies, books, games Library thing - about LibraryThing is an online service to help people catalog their books easily. You can access your catalog from anywhere—even on your mobile phone. Because everyone catalogs together, LibraryThing also connects people with the same books, comes up with suggestions for what to read next, and so forth. In April 2013, LibraryThing staff and members collaborated to write What makes LibraryThing LibraryThing?, a blog post outlining what we see as the key elements of LibraryThing. What software does it require? None. What does it cost? A free account allows you to catalog up to 200 books. What information do I need to give up? None. What else does LibraryThing do? LibraryThing is a full-powered cataloging application, searching the Library of Congress, all five national Amazon sites, and more than 690 world libraries. If you want it, LibraryThing is also an amazing social space, often described as "Facebook for books." Who is behind LibraryThing? Where does LibraryThing get its information?
