Have you heard of Riffle?

3 Sep

A few days ago an e-mail appeared inviting me to join Riffle Books. I scratched my head and clicked on the link. I couldn’t remember signing up for any reminders about the site, but I must have done. I have to say, I’m kind of ecstatic about the find.

Riffle is being advertised as “the Pinterest for books.” It’s a website where you can find books you like, recommend them to your friends, create lists of books, and show off what you’re reading now. Plus, you can browse other people’s lists and find new books you’d like to read.

You’re probably thinking, “Isn’t that what Goodreads is for?”

It does overlap Goodreads in many ways, but I’m finding that I like Riffle better. It’s simpler, easier to navigate. It doesn’t have all of the excess that Goodreads does. I like that I can type in a book in the “lists” section and it’ll tell me which lists that book is on so that I can find other books I might enjoy without having to sort through the hundreds and hundreds of somewhat irrelevant books on lists that Goodreads typically has. 

Cons? It’s new, which means that a) it doesn’t have every book in the world on it yet, b) sometimes glitches up on me, and c) there aren’t many people making new lists right now. You can solve that problem. Go join up! Make some lists. Share them. I’d love to hear what you think of Riffle in the comments below!
