this is a great thread, Annetta!

I go to firsttoread.com and netgalley.com. you can get early copies of books from the publishers before they r released!

Sometimes I also just go on Amazon to take a look at their book recommendations and reviews.

Annetta,
I was thinking about what you said in the Welcome Thread. Have you signed up for http://nanowrimo.org? They have this thing where they challenge you to write a novel in a month and you get ongoing support and tracking from them.

just curious. Has anyone tried Booklikes? I took a look at it but it just didn't appeal to me.


 Ƹ̴Ӂ̴Ʒ Jenn Ƹ̴Ӂ̴Ʒ Schu (jennschu) | 7041 comments Have not checked out Booklikes, Laura, I'll look a little more at the site tomorrow. Is it the layout that doesn't appeal?
