How to Share a Book on Google+

Google+ has leveraged the Google Books library, helping the social network’s users link and comment on the Google eBook they are currently exploring.

Check it out: “Let’s say you are reading Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, and you’d like your friends to read it with you (or you have a witty comment to let loose). Simply click on the Google+ Share box on the About the Book page or in a Google Books preview, enter your message, then select which circles you’d like to share details about the book with, and click ‘share.’ The book cover, description and title linking back to the Google Books About the Book page will appear in your Google+ stream with your message.”

Will the new feature help you share and choose books? We recommend building a special circle for your literary friends. If you are looking for other readers in the new network, explore our Writers Who Want to Connect on Google+ directory. (Via Publishers Marketplace)
