When it comes to quality book reviews Revish.com might just come out as one of the best sites out there. Aside from the quality reviews, the site is actually a place where people share their reading experiences. It's a book review site integrated with elements of social networking.

The site has lots of features, like keeping lists of books you're reading, are planning to read, and books that you have read. You can also find books recommended by other readers. You can see which books are currently popular among the users of the site. User profiles are accessible so you can get a glimpse of the books individuals prefer. You can send messages to other users and ask them about their own lists of books and stuff or be their friends on this online community. And just like any other social network, you can add your contacts, join groups and participate in discussions.

You can add any other Revish user to your contact list. Once you do this you'll be able to keep up with what they are reading, reviewing and enjoying easily, and participate in reading groups with them. It's a fun and easy way of discovering new books and making friends.

Signing up is free. But Revish offers a pay-account to users who want to gain access to free books from publishers. These books are usually given for free as long as the recipient reads and reviews the books. The site calls this pay account the Revish Connect. Revish also uses microformats, 'machine tagging' to pull in related photos from Flickr, and an API and simple ways to include your Revish content on your blog or website.

Also, you might want to look at the terms and conditions agreement. When you write a review and post it in Revish, all the contents that you have submitted will be copyrighted under your name. However, the reviews you will write from the books that you will get for free will be owned by Revish.com.
