  Here is another 'social media' site for book lovers. I am having so much fun discovering all these different yet interesting sites where book lovers, librarians, and  readers can meet and find out about new books.

  This is a free resource that helps the reader search for book related content. When you get to BookSpot you will see a listing of main pages on the left hand side. The top sources for best sellers has main list and also has listing by genre, including audio books, Christin, and children just to name a few..

There is a listing of major awards which is helpful for librarians wanting the best for their patrons and libraries.

  The Book Review tab shows magazines which have book review, including NY times, booklist, and Horn Book , just to name a few. This is very convenient for the busy librarian. ( I wonder if there are any that are not!)

  Under reading lists you can find top sources of reading lists and also a "if you liked" section, which is great for readers looking for similar books.

  Another great section for  both librarians is the section on the side called "Behind the book: . This is a very helpful page . One tab is the Book Discussion center. There you can find links to online discussion, publishers guides to books,  and tips for reading groups.  There are also links to discussion guides for a nice selection of books, both current and older titles.

   A great guide for school librarians can be found under Children, and Young Adult in the Genre Corner. There are links to best sellers, reading lists, awards, reviews, and online books .

  The main page has links to other book related sites, lists for librarians and readers, and recent book awards and questions with answers about books.

   So check out for some really interesting content  and ideas about books!
