Which website devoted to discussing books (like BookTalk) is the busiest/best to join? Any recommendations? I want a website where I can type in the name/author and get to see a thread (hopefully) where lots of people over time have added their thoughts and comments. Both Fiction and non-fiction.

Yes - bumping too..BTW If you google the title and the word reviews a lot of interesting websites come up, including Amazon. But these are reviews and not discussion sites. Would be interested if good discussion sites come up too.

Ooh! neat that others are interested.
I haven't registered for BookTalk, so am not sure what their fora are like...

I'd like something like this too.

Have a look at shelfari
There are lots of active discussions and you can have fun playing around with your own bookshelf. Social networking for the bookish!

I've been having a look at Booktalk. It seems a really well put together site, but the forums aren't massively busy.

Also, why is there a special 'women's fiction' subsection in general fiction?

Shelfari's great isn't it! All the books you take resentfully to the charity shop remain on your Shelfari shelf!!

Thanks for the tip - Shelfari is fab!

I just looked through shelfari and imho, Visual Bookshelf on Facebook is just as good if not better. Definitely easier to navigate.
