Online Bookstore Communities

How much do readers really engage in the many online communities and forums currently being offered by Amazon, Borders, and B&N? All three sites present unique opportunities for chatting with other readers and connecting with big-name authors. There's so much going on out there: I, personally, couldn't stay away from B&'s current Center Stage forum, where Suzanne Brockmann is hanging out on the boards for an entire week, gabbing and answering questions about her Troubleshooters and just generally being fabulous. I'm also intensely interested in the new initiative Sue Grimshaw, the romance buyer for Borders, announced at the recent RWA conference, which was that a pair of popular blog reviewers (Smart Bitch Sarah and Jane from Dear Author) will be doing a daily blog on the Borders site. Should be interesting, as always, to hear what Sarah and Jane have to say! And I know Amazon's reader forums are active and vibrant.

So where do you hang out online? Ever drop in and visit the bookstores?


Mostly I blog hop. I do hit the stores once in awhile, but they're not my mainstay.

I tend to browse around the B&N site- it's fabulous.
