What's your favourite book review website?

I'll begin by congratulating Seth Haniel, our new Readers' Sites champion. Seth Haniel wins our thanks and a Trust graphics tablet for his recommendation of the BBC gardening website. Thanks to Seth and to the other Speakers' Corner regulars who suggested gardening sites.

Now to turn over a new leaf, so to speak. We're talking book review websites, and we want to hear your favourites. Whether it's a massive corporate site or a small web upstart, the online arm of a newspaper, a social network, a forum or simply the feedback section of an online bookseller, we want to know which websites you use to find out what to read next. And, of course, what you like about them.

Add your recommended websites (and a few sentences explaining why you recommend them) to this thread or email them to [email protected], and you could see your name in print or even win a great prize.

Good luck!

My first stop is Waterstone's, then I may check a title out further with a general web search if it interests me.

I use BookRabbit, as it's more than just an online book shop - it's a social network for bookworms.

In particular I love the fact you can upload a photo of your bookshelf from home and tag the titles in it.

Then identify others with the same titles as you and nose through their bookshelves. It’s a great way to get ideas for new reads.

Its got the usual interviews with authors and extracts for forthcoming books as well.

Some interesting suggestions so far that I've book marked for future use. I tend to get into the habit of the easiest option, and then find it's maybe lacking at times.

Amazon.com for me. I like the Times and the Guardians reviews, but you are getting a single perspective with those. For a larger sample size I use Amazon, not limited to books.

Well , I'm curious to know the title. You might as well plug it properly;)

Busted Anonimity! Is that a proper word?
