Sites We Like: Reader Shaming

There’s a big, wonderful world of bookish websites out there. In this column, we point you to some of our favorites.

We all have weird quirks and foibles when it comes to our reading lives (see my millions of posts that start with “confession”). There’s a new Tumblr for all of us to pour out our “deepest, darkest bookish secrets,” and it’s appropriately called Reader Shaming. It’s like Post Secret for book nerds, but without the strange sexual confessions (…so far)!

It’s a new site, so feel free to take a snap of your own reading confession and submit it here. I think I’ll start with how I finally got rid of all the unread Franz Kafka on my shelves, and I’ve never felt more free. 

Here are a few of the highlights from the site’s early days.
