News: Riffle


They've begun to call it "the Pinterest for Books". I just call it a really cool website for avid readers! Riffle was started about a year or so ago as a Facebook application.  I was contacted by them, being that I am a reviewer to try it out. Even then I loved it!  The idea of it is similar to GoodReads, but not quite.  You are not allowed to post full reviews, but recently they have input a 256 character blurb spot that one can put a link to their review if they wish. It has 4 categories within which you can place a book.  "Want to Read", "Currently Reading", "Have Read" and "Recommend".  You can put one book in multiple categories if you wish.

The only drawback though it has improved tremendously is that you cannot input titles that you cannot find in their database.  It is a rarity now that they have been around a decent amount of time, but it still can happen. In a recent newsletter they stated that at some point in the future will allow it, but right now that is not the case.

If you would like to join all you have to do is go to read.rifflebooks.com/home and sign up!  You can create an account using Facebook account, Twitter account or by email.  It is no longer a Facebook app.
