You can also add your own blog to their database by filling out this form http://idreambooks.com/book_critics.

There are a couple of rules such as:

  1. You must have a blog that has been up for one year.
  2. Your blog must be exclusively related to books only.
  3. You must be blogging book reviews consistently.

The site is easy enough to use. You find yourself on the main site where you can click on any book to your liking.

Then you end up on the single review page. Within the page you can see a description of the book, the book cover, a mini bio about the author, and how many reviewers liked or disliked the book. It’s calculated out of 100%, so you can see if a book is loved or not. They have an easy and scannable interface with lots of link backs to other book blog review sites.

You can also navigate the site by category, or use the search bar to find a book title of your choice.
