I recently came across a new website where readers and authors can post book reviews. It was set up by Carolyn Howard Johnson and the link to it is here.
Here is a description of the review site in her words:
This review spot is NEW because it embodies the new idea that a book should not be judged by its cover or its press. If a reviewer thinks a book is great, The New Book Review lets readers know about it. Please submit your own favorite review. It makes no difference whether you're an author, reviewer or reader, I want to post your favorite reviews. See guidelines for submission on the left of this blog. And please note: It was named to Online Unversties' 101 Best Blogs for Readers.
The New Book Review is blogged by Carolyn Howard-Johnson, author of the multi award-winning HowToDoItFrugally series of books for writers. It is a free service offered to those who want to encourage the reading of books they love. That includes authors who want to share their favorite reviews, reviewers who'd like to see their reviews get more exposure, and readers who want to shout out praise of books they've read. Please see submission guidelines on the left of this page. Reviews and essays are indexed by genre, reviewer names, and review sites. Writers will find the search engine handy for gleaning the names of small publishers. Find other writer-related blogs at Sharing with Writers and The Frugal, Smart and Tuned-In Editor.
I personally like the fact that the site hosts one book review at a time and each review gets is own post. I also like that it's a good location for writers to share reviews that they have received. My guess is the newreview site will get increasingly popular.
