A New Way to Read: BookGlutton

Check out this new e-book reader.  It’s in beta, but you can sign up to try it out.  Looks like it combines the social web with traditional e-reading at a level not yet seen.  Basically, you can read a book while chatting with someone else who’s reading the same book at the same time.  Or, you could leave comments and conduct an asynchronous conversation over a period of time.  An interesting way to conduct a book club, possibly with friends across the country or the world.
