Do you know the (book)score?

Here’s a (to my knowledge) unique website for book lovers:  The Bookscore.

It’s a review aggregator site, which is a fancy way to say that they compile a whole bunch of reviews for a book.  They give each book a score (here’s how they do it), but that’s not what I like best about the site.  The useful part, to me, is that a whole group of well-written reviews are gathered in one place for easy perusal.  So if you’re considering reading a particular book, or looking for something good to read, Bookscore is a great place to learn more about it.

At the end of each book’s page, they include links to “Further Reading,” which might be an interview with the author, an excerpt, or other goodies.  They also feature interesting articles and “book news.”   Browse away!
