VooWorks.com is a place where you can pay $40 to list your book,
upload a PDF version of the book, and wait to get real book reviews
from other members of this new social network. Dave Wilkinson hopes
to make it a real social network for readers and authors to get together
to share and review books. Current Alexa rank: 3,598,865, so the site
doesn't have much traffic yet.
Or you can give away your book as a free ebook at All Books Free
(http://www.allbooksfree.com) for novels, poetry, and children's books
or at Free Books for All (http://www.freebooksforall.com) for nonfiction
books. No social mechanism or interaction. Alexa rank: 1,823,619 for
Free Books for All and 2,757,436 for All Books Free. Not a lot of traffic
at these sites either. Alas.
