Glue is all about connections--connecting you with others. When you visit the sites you would normally visit anyway--Worldcat, NY Times, Guardian, Audible, Shelfari, Library Thing, Borders, Amazon, Wikipedia, Goodreads, Alibris, Powells, and Barnes & Noble, etc.,--you'll find that glue is there and waiting for you. You can mark books as your favorites. You can even share your thoughts on the book--keeping it short and sweet! (140 characters to be precise) But perhaps more importantly, you can see what others think about a particular book. You'll see if any of your friends like the book. You'll also see what other people thought about it. (You might discover someone who shares your tastes in books and make a new friend...or two...or three). Glue knows that a book is a book is a book. (It recognizes 32 bookish sites so far, and the list will only keep growing with time and your feedback!)
It's easy to use. I don't even have to think about it. I find myself going to bookish sites all day long, and glue is just along for the ride.
In the past week or so, Glue has added new features making it even better than before. Easier to make connections. You can now have conversations in Glue about books! How cool is that! And you can share your thoughts on books with twitter at the same time.
