I’m an ebook author and a big supporter of the digital revolution. Of course you’d expect someone with this many books available to say that! However, I’m also a lover of old-fashioned print books, and I have shelves and shelves of them in my home. That’s why I like this site — 100 Places to Connect With Other Bibliophiles Online | OEDb.– because it has 100 sites where book lovers can connect, to buy, sell, and trade books, discuss them, and make recommendations to other book lovers. You’ll find lots of great sites here, and it’s a great way to use the Internet to connect with other lovers of print books — kind of a merging of the new and the old!
