Web Sites for Readers

As if the web itself isn’t seduc­tive enough to those of us who love words, there are innu­mer­able sites devot­ed to read­ers. Some are cat­a­logs or online book­stores, and some have infor­ma­tion and reviews about books and authors (some­times even full texts avail­able for downloading).
