Rotten Tomatoes for Books ... Or Another Piece of Produce?

Posted By on Fri, Aug 24, 2012 at 2:30 PM

Rottentomatoes.com is a great site to find out what film critics and other moviegoers think about movies. But if you want to know what the critics think about books, you had to check out several websites—until now.

The new website www.idreambooks.com gathers reviews in one place. It is "the first site on the Internet that aggregates reviews from professional book critics like New York Times or Washington Post and recommends a book if 70 percent of critics give it a positive rating—similar to rottentomatoes.com or metacritic.com."

Percentages are accompanied by either smiling or frowning clouds. But what the public likes may be different from what the critics say. The popular Fifty Shades of Grey only got a 30 percent rating.

The site also offers free book giveaways, with winners are posted on the site's blog.
