BookLikes: Another Social Reading Site Launches


BookLikes, which has just moved from beta to full release, combines "different aspects of social media sites such as Tumblr and Goodreads to become a place for readers to share thoughts and reviews," TeleRead reported, adding that users "can create different posts about anything... follow other users, read their posts and discover books they've read." TeleRead also highlighted what it termed a "noticeable aspect: Users can link to affiliate sites such as Amazon in the United States. It seems that there's a potential to make money on this site if your gain a bunch of followers and get them to purchase books through Amazon."
