Readernaut is another social networking site for book lovers. There’s not much info on the site at the moment, as it’s still in Beta, but it looks like you can share what you’re reading (or have read) by “writing notes, tracking progress, and engaging in meaningful discussions with friends.”

Poetry Planet 2009

Poetry Planet 2009

Posted by Eric

I’m about a month behind with this, but the League of Canadian Poets has put up a Poetry Planet blog to celebrate National Poetry Month. The poems on the blog are meant to

discuss and elaborate on themes of poetry related to the ideas of land, culture, nature and how we define Canada, from the very first Canadian artists, Aboriginal Peoples, and storytelling, and to today’s youth, who reflect the diversity of the land and languages of Canadian cultural climates.

There are plenty of poems and comments on the site. Go check it out.

BooksPrice.com: Online Book Price Comparison

BooksPrice.com: Online Book Price Comparison

Posted by Eric

For those of you (us) that buy books online, there’s a new, free online tool for comparing prices between online shops: BooksPrice.com. The site also works for DVDs, music, and video games.

When you choose the book for which you want to compare prices, you’re shown either a table or a chart, listing stores and prices from lowest to most expensive, including the cost of shipping. You can choose your currency and general shipping info (i.e., your country) in order to filter your results. Amazon.ca seems to be the only “Canadian” store listed (as far as I’ve seen).
