The Best Places Where Students Can Post Book Reviews For Authentic Audiences

| 2 Comments

Authentic audiences are always motivating for students, and I thought having an expanded list of places where students could post book reviews people other than classmates or a teacher would see them would be useful. I’ve had a few in The Best Places Where Students Can Write For An “Authentic Audience” list, but I was sure there were more.

So I put out a call on Twitter, and got a lot of great responses. I hope readers will contribute even more.

Here are The Best Places Where Students Can Post Book Reviews For Authentic Audiences:

Library Thing

Good Reads

Shelfari

Amber Garbe suggested Biblionosium.

Meenoo Rami suggest Figment.

Margie Myers-Culver suggested Share What You’re Reading at Scholastic. She wrote a good blog post about it here.

Several suggested The Stacks at Scholastic, though it’s unclear to me where students can write reviews there.

Additional suggestions are welcome.
