Book Lover's Link Threadipedia
« on: September 08, 2011, 07:59:06 PM »
This Threadipedia is designed to help both Newbies and Oldbies find some of the various resources, suggestions and recommendations available in the Book Corner and on the internet in general.  In addition to redesigning the existing Book Lover's Links, this includes links to recommendation threads  created for specific genres as well as additional links to book resources outside of Kindleboards.

If you have any questions, comments, suggestions or updates for this thread, I set up a Comments thread so we can chat about this list without having the good stuff get lost in the shuffle.   :D
