I love books and there’s no time like the summer to catch up on my reading. The challenge for me is usually deciding which book to read. “Books weRead” is a new application on My Yahoo! that is helping me to find great books, more easily. weRead has an extensive searchable catalog of books across many of the most popular genres. It provides very useful reviews, ratings and even a list of “top books” recommended by weRead’s community of more than a million readers:
Some of my favorite aspects of the app are its social features. Using weRead, I can see which books my friends are reading as well as their reviews and ratings within the app. This is a very efficient way to get recommendations on what I might like to read, from people I know and trust. This has definitely helped me decide what book I’m going to read on the beach next month! I can also share my reviews with my friends as well as the larger weRead community:
It’s great to have an app on My Yahoo! that provides a useful and fun way to share my passion for reading with friends. With weRead, I not only benefit from reading reviews from a large community of book lovers, but I also get to keep in touch with my personal network of friends in a new way. Give it a shot.
