"You'll notice tiny blue boxes next to many Amazon links. Click on a blue box and you can compare prices at several different online booksellers, or add the book to your favorite reading community, such as GoodReads or Shelfari."I've signed up with Selective Blue for this blog, and now next to many book titles you will see a tiny blue box like this: A Mango-shaped Space by Wendy Mass. I just had to sign up for a free account and install the widget code into Blogger. Easy-peasey. Click the little blue box and you can find the books all over the universe. Cool huh?
After playing with it for a bit I realize I have to link the book title to Amazon or B& N or some other specific seller before the Selective Blue hot link shows up. I wish it would recognize every book title automatically, but I guess that's a bit too much to ask. The good thing is once you click on that little blue link you can choose to read a list of reviews, find the book in World Cat at your local library, find it in BookCrossing (freely shared copies passed around) or find it in Library Thing. I'm still playing with it. Let me know what you think.
