Share Your Books with

September 29, 2009

By Ralph Phillips, Computer & Information Systems is a web-based application and social networking site that allows you to keep track of the books you’ve read and the books you’re reading. But wait, there’s more…

  • See what your friends are reading and check out their reviews.
  • Rate and categorize your own book so your friends can check out what you’re reading.
  • Participate in book discussions via the message boards.
  • Keep track of book recommendations by adding them to your wish list.
  • Make widgets (like the book covers below) to post on your web site or blog.

Even if you’re not into the social networking aspect of the site, the other tools on make it a fun and worthwhile tool.
