It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
