To Participate in a Social Network for Readers, or Not? This is a Question…

Are you an avid reader who’s joined, or considered joining – or at least heard about – LibraryThing, GoodReads, Shelfari, or one of the many other Internet-based websites where readers share their reading lists and recommendations?

If so, you might find interesting – and you will certainly find amusing – Minneapolis-baed blogger Dylan Hicks’ reflections on his love/hate relationship with GoodReads. His screed is entitled Bats in the Bookshelves: The Perils of Literary Social Networking.

For hyperlinks to over two dozen Internet-based social networks for readers, see the heading Social Networks in the Atlanta Booklover’s Blog’s Booklover’s Toolbox.
