Posting book reviews online

Many bloggers (like myself) enjoy posting book reviews on their blogs. It's a great way to interest your blog readers and start book discussions! To take it a step further, I also like sharing my reviews on other commercial book-selling websites, to express my opinion and guide other people---people who will never read my blog, but my personal ratings will be available to them regardless.

Below is a list of websites that encourage reviews to be written, and would be great places for you to add your own book reviews!

Amazon
Barnes & Noble
GoodReads
Alibris
Google Books

Sometimes, to get your reviews out there to help people that are looking at books in a certain category, you may find additional sites for this purpose. For example, homeschool-approved fiction or Christian fiction. If a certain book you've read is featured by homeschool curriculums, it may be available to review on websites like these and others:

Christian Book
Sonlight
Timberdoodle
Rainbow Resource

Ebooks are another whole category! Remember that you can write reviews on ebooks. You can post Kindle and Nook book reviews on Amazon and B&N websites, respectively. Smashwords is another possible option for ebooks from independent authors.

You may want to check out publishers' or authors' websites, where there may be customer ratings. For example, Lamplighter, Tyndale, etc. If your local library has a website, they may have an online reviewing system. My library actually incorporates GoodReads as their reviewing system---thus, if my review (or your review!) is on GoodReads, then it shows up on the library website.

I personally do not post each of my book reviews on all of these websites listed above, but this is a basic list that I run through when I want to get a review out there. There are numerous other websites available that would be great resources to add reviews on.
What sites would you recommend for posting reviews?



P.S. You can friend me on GoodReads!
