A community of interest to book readers?

My family have been running thedailybook for just over two years. We were spotlighted (or is it spotlit?) a little while before this community. It never hurts to take part in communities that are slightly different and I feel these two communities compliment each other.

Over at thedailybook, a book title is posted everyday with a poll. All you have to do is say whether you have read the book. If you have, then you can rate it (1-6), if you haven't then you decide whether you are likely to. A link about the book is always provided to either jog your memory about the plot, or to give you a taster to help you decide if you are likely to read it. Obviously, we encourage comments, as this is essential to a discussion about the book, and may also help another member to decide whether to pick it up or not.
You do not have to answer every question in the poll if you do not wish to, but it takes less than 30 seconds a day to take part.

I quite often get ideas about books to post from entries here at bookish. So you may see the book you've just reviewed being featured on thedailybook!

So come along and join us and have some fun.
