Reading Trails is part social network, part folksonomy, where users create trails of books by theme or other idea (Books that influenced Milan Kundera, Books I read too young, etc). Since a book can appear on multiple trails, these trails intersect, resulting in a network that one can browse to discover new reading.
Furthermore, these members are already creating a resource for everyone: all visitors can browse the site’s network of trails to discover new reading and see unexpected ways of linking books. Reading Trails isn’t just about linking books. It’s about organizing information.
