The reading room

Avid readers looking for reliable recommendations in genres of interest might be drawn to The Reading Room (, a source of reliable reviews crafted by members. This website came to my attention during a meeting of writers and publishers that meets monthly in North County San Diego.

The nine-person operation, founded in Australia and headquartered now in New York, provides a brief synopsis of a variety of fiction and non-fiction books and brief author bios. I registered Jerkwater Town on the site and already got a review.

A book is featured each time a member provides a review and ratings will soon be provided via a set of variables rather than the traditional 1-5 or star method. Authors can pay to have more extensive summaries of their works published, but may not review their own work.
