Book Junkies – An online library on Pinterest

libraryWhether you’re an author or a reader, you’ve got to check out this online library! (see what I did there?)

Book Junkies is a Pinterest library devoted to indie and small press publications. There are more than 3,700 pins across 39 boards — that’s Pinterest talk for some odd 3,700 Indie and small press books divided into 38 categories.

Book Junkies was set-up by Louise Wise, a self described Indie Champion.  She lives in the UK, and has written several science fiction romance and contemporary romance novels. She runs a blog called Wise Words, which lives here.

According to Wise, Book Junkies is the only Indie library on the net. It’s definitely the largest one I’ve found. Again — with over 3700 books represented and growing — it’s easy to get lost looking around and reading. Most books are pinned from Amazon.com. Because it’s Pinterest, it’s graphicentric and feels like aisles in a library. I got a kick out of just browsing the titles.

Categories include all the basics (mystery-suspense, fantasy, science fiction, romance, horror, Christian, gay & lesbian, action & adventure, etc.) as well novella and short story boards, also divided into categories. Even for reference, you can find “great blog posts,” “promotional sites for Indie authors,” and “author websites.”

Warning though — don’t click on the link unless you’re prepared to devote some time to exploring the site. Book Junkies is addictive.
