Ever since I became a regular user of StumbleUpon, I have been introduced to a variety of cool tools for book lovers.
The one I’m most excited about is Book Glutton (found via Sylvia’s blog), which allows you to read with a group and annotate passages as you read. Here’s a video demonstration:

I have mentioned DailyLit before, and if you’re a regular visitor, maybe you’ve even kept track of my DailyLit reading in the sidebar on the right. Tom Hand contacted me through my education blog to tell me about DailyReader.net, a similar tool. You can also browse thousands of free books online at FullBooks.com. ReadPrint is another good source for online reading.
If you’re looking for suggestions, you might consult What Should I Read Next, which will guide you to a selection based on
If you’re looking for something different to read, you might choose one of the selections in “10 Books for Inquiring Minds” from BookStove.
Blurb allows you to create your own books (the samples look pretty slick) for as little as $12.95. You can also use Lulu to publish your books (I was happy with the results when I published my own book on Lulu).
