Pinterest

Often after I read a book I spend time on the Web reading about the book: reviews, articles about the setting, websites about the movie version, articles about the author. Occasionally I include these links in my blog post but usually not. I don't like to clutter up the post with too much extraneous stuff. But some of what I find is really interesting and I want to share it! So for the past few days I've been fooling around with the aggregator site Pinterest. Pinterest lets you create a virtual bulletin board and "pin" links to the board. You can keep your board private, or make it public so other people can see it. You can have multiple boards, collaborative boards, etc. Lots of people seem to use it for fanboards or for saving links to things they want to buy, but I have found some book-related boards, too.

Here is my board. I'll also put a link to it on my sidebar. Apparently you can also "follow me" though I'm not really sure what that entails. If you like it, check it again in a few weeks. I'll keep putting up new links as I find them.

Thank you for introducing me to Pinterest - I am now on their waiting list! I will be watching your pins as well as reading your blog - sigh - when will there be enough hours in the day?

This is the first place I heard of Pinterest. I am impressed (and dismayed) by how much more advanced computer-wise you are than I am! (Sadly, a disadavantage thse days for a writer.) I would have no idea how to "pin" pictures there, but your "board" is very eye-catching!

What a great idea. I'd briefly looked at pinterest but didn't think of its potential for book bloggers. I like your choices.
