I posted about Book Glutton in early November.  It’s now open to the public.

It’s an intriguing web application that allows groups of people to read books over the Internet and “chat” and leave comments about what they’re reading.

That’s okay, but I think it really might be useful when they begin the “uploading” feature they say is near.  You can then upload your own materials and have groups chatting and leaving comments about it.  I could see that really having potential for online discussions of short articles between classes in the same school that meet during different periods and with sister classes in different parts of the world.
