Book review and discovery site TheReadingRoom is a comprehensive portal for readers to discover, share, and buy new titles. This growing site already boasts a catalog of over seven million book records, and through the connectivity of the incorporated social media tools, opportunities to find new titles within selected genres is even greater.
One of the more interesting things that the site offers is the chance to form and join virtual book clubs, either private or public. For the summer months, TheReadingRoom has created a summer reading list of bestselling titles for 2013, a comprehensive list that covers a wide variety of genres and interests. These titles are by both well-known and debut authors, which lends a good mix to the list.
“This year’s summer reading list represents a perfect example of what we do best at TheReadingRoom.com. Indeed, discoverability, browsability and curation are key to our offering to members,” explained Kim Anderson, CEO of TheReadingRoom.com, in a press release. “Just as the curator of an art gallery curates its collection, so, too, does our site carefully select books to showcase to our members, ensuring that our readers can discover new authors and hidden gems, in much the way traditional bookstore windows and counter displays worked in the past.”
The titles featured on this summers’ list include:
Life After Life by Kate Atkinson
The Woman Upstairs by Claire Messud
The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls by Anton Disclafani
The Curiosity by Stephen P Kiernan
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
Kiss Me First by Lottie Moggach
The Other Typist by Suzanne Rindell
