Social Networks

Probably one of most underlooked source of top notch book reviews and recommendations (or not). Follow your favourite or any other authors through their social networks and gain access to invaluable information on what to read next, based on their personal recommendations. The best part in this process is that we can literally skip through the review process, if you willingly choose to do so, as their endorsements are basically good reviews on their own.
