The mighty engine that powers Unshelved is being fueled this week, in part, by Bookreporter. For over a decade Bookreporter has been fulfilling an avid reader's every desire. Well, maybe not every desire, but each week there are a dozen new reviews (they now have over 6000), excerpts and author interviews, polls, contests to win advance reading copies, and features like Coming Soon, Books Into Movies, New and Notable in Paperback, and Word of Mouth. I get their weekly newsletter, with all the week's update in one place. But my favorite part is co-founder Carol Fitzgerald's look on life and books. I think you will find it - and her - an invaluable and enjoyable resource.

Unshelved/Bookreporter trivia: Carol is the only person I know who talks faster than me.
