I am an avid reader. I just wish there were more hours in a day available for reading! But what I love more than just reading, is sharing my thoughts about what I’ve read. Sharing a reading experience with other people is awesome, because it allows you to see the material you just read through someone else’s perspective. It can be eye-opening and thought provoking.
Here at Book Glutton not only can you read books online for free, but you can also chat about them chapter by chapter if you want. You don’t even have to be a member in order to read the books here but I think that the registration process is so easy that being a member is easy and rewarding.
To register just click the Login link, this will take you to the login page where you can then click the Sign Up link. It’s so easy – all you have to do is fill out the form and click the Submit button then you’ll be automatically logged in and ready to go.
If you click Books on the navigation strip at the top, you’ll be whisked away to the book section where you can find random reads, as well as, directions on searching for books and uploading books to the site. If you click the Surprise me button, you’ll be automatically sent to a random book.
I love the look of the books on the site. The background is neutral, so it doesn’t distract you from the work. The panels for chatting, and leaving notes are closed so that you can read privately if you’d like. The book is center on the screen and you’ll notice two blue tabs on either side, one is labeled Talk, the other is labeled Mark. Talk is the chat screen (you must be logged in to chat) and Mark is the place where you can leave your thoughts about a particular passage. To turn the page, click the pointing hands at the bottom of the page.
You can even set up Groups. You’ll find directions on how to do this on the Groups page, which you can get to off the main navigation strip at the top of the page.
This site makes reading a community experience that allows you to share your thoughts as you read. Go enjoy a book today!
