Today is Readerville's eighth birthday. Readerville is a community of book enthusiasts that has a lively message board full of discerning and intelligent readers, and has new articles every day regarding books, the publishing business, and the literary world. Some of my favorite features are The Odd Shelf, the author articles, and the specialized lists of books. It is a community for all types of readers, and I spend some time there each day. Yesterday, they featured an article by author Adrian McKinty, who related his story about being approached to buy any book in Hemingway's collection for $200. Readerville also has archived chats with authors, and seasonal recommendation lists. Some of the lists for the summer are more challenging and interesting then the usual summer fare that can be found elsewhere. If you haven't already visited, take a look!
