Find Reviews on the Book Blogs Search Engine

While searching for reviews of a book, it is tough to sort through all the mixed Amazon reviews, publisher sites and mainstream critics. The Book Blogs Search will help you explore the work of hundreds of literary critics online–excluding results from other sites.

Check it out: “Looking for reviews of a book by real-life book bloggers? Tired of sifting through corporate sites in your regular Google search results? That’s why I created the Book Blogs custom search engine – all book bloggers, all the time! Whether you’re looking for other non-commercial reviews of a book you’ve just read, or want real readers’ opinions on a new book you’re considering, this is the place!”

If you want to include your book blog in the search engine, leave a comment at this link. Here is a sample search exploring book blogger content about Jesse Ball‘s heartbreaking fable, Curfew. (Via)
