Readiac: A New Website for Book Reviews
So called "amateur" book reviewers have emerged over the past few years as powerful voices in the online book community. This is a great thing for readers, as we are faced with so many choices of what to read - more books are published annually than ever before - we need someone to tell us something meaningful to help us decide how to use our precious reading time for the greatest reward.
I love to read books that other people think are truly great. And what better way to choose what to read than to follow the deeply felt enthusiasm of other readers? Anyone who loves to read remembers that incredible feeling that comes from reading a book that truly resonates and makes us feel that we don’t want it to end - or that stimulates our intellectual or creative abilities so deeply we literally feel the need to rush out and tell someone how great this book is. Malcolm Gladwell talks about this phenomenon in his wildly popular "The Tipping Point" - it’s how influence happens in culture.
I read lot of books. But I don’t have lots of time to read, and these days I only want to read really good books. Selfishly, I want to read these kinds of enthusiastic book reviews myself so I have a better chance of finding out about more wonderful books to read. So I created a new website called Readiac, which features only deeply felt positive reviews of books the reviewer truly loved reading.
With literally hundreds of book review blogs going strong, there are tons of book reviews out there. Readiac is the one place you can go to follow the enthusiasms of dedicated readers. In this case, more is better - if you read books, you certainly have your favorites, and most of those who are reading this can write (probably better than I can). So send me reviews of the books you love!
