Amy Holman Edelman hopes to raise $10,000 on Kickstarter for Rabble, a website with aggregated book reviews from trusted and verified sources. The site aims to be like rottentomatoes.com or metacritic.com for books with reviews of both traditionally published and self-published titles.
Here is more about the project: “Rabble’s team, made up of zealous and intrepid book-lovers (and many of the same people who brought you IndieReader), will scour the publishing landscape, pull a sentence or two from each review (pre-vetted to insure its credibility, with a link to the complete review source) and come up with a consensus for a final Rabble score—to insure that you, the busy reader, don’t have to.” We’ve embedded a video of the project above for you to check out.
Idreambooks.com, which launched last summer, also aggregates reviews from professional book critics including The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
