Re: Resources for readers & writers

I've been thinking about joining the Critters Writers Workshop to get my novel critiqued and was wondering if anyone here has tried the site and could give me some feedback on it?

Library Thing is a great resource for readers/collectors. You can catalog your library and check out all kinds of stats such as "most owned books" or such. In a lot of ways, it reminds me of DVD Spot. They've also begun a system where you can find a book locally, if your local book seller has an online web inventory that they can access, and list literary events in your area such as book signings.

Litreactor is a new site devoted to writing and reading. It's pretty interesting so far.

Scrivener is a great software for writers. I know it's for the Mac, but they've been working on a PC version.

Re: Resources for readers & writers

I propose to check all the links here and then to edit this down with a view to keeping things useful and relevant.

As before, if someone wants to become the maintainer of the thread that would also be great. As one or two have commented within and without the forum [], this isn't the fastest-moving part of the site, so any maintaining duties would be fairly light.

I'm thinking that we also could do something with the e-reader/e-book thread to make it more navigable. I can make a start on that but would be happy for anyone particularly civic minded to make their own suggestions as to format etc. etc. etc. The main thing is to keep such threads readable. I think sometimes people are put off by an old-looking thread that extends over many pages.

For now I am going to de-sticky this to remind me keep dipping in until I've done the job. I better be quick, though, because in a year or so this could fall off the front page!
