Richer by the Day regulars know that I read a lot of books. I often review relevant books here and host book giveaways as well. In the course of those efforts, I was surprised to learn that there really isn’t a centralized place for people to collect, share, and discuss various book reviews. There are many book review sites, but they are generally for user’s own reviews or discussions of the books themselves. I envisioned a site where many reviews for a book could be submitted and users could vote for the best review. Then, others considering the book could find reviews and opinions all in one place. They could limit themselves to the best ranking review, or view them all. Since this type of social bookmarking for book reviews didn’t seem to exist, I took it upon myself to create such a site. The result is bookreviewmark.net.
The site is still in beta testing, but I’d be thrilled if any Richer by the Day readers would give it a try. To help entice you, I’ll be hosting another giveaway to coincide with the beta testing period. I will be giving away 5 personal finance or investing themed books from my large collection on October 1st. All users of Book Review Mark will be eligible. Each book review you add to the site or vote you cast for other reviews will count as an additional entry.
Thanks for your help in this effort and happy reading!
