BookGlutton, one of the web's first social reading systems, has shut down. Try its new sister site, Readups.com, to "meet up" inside a book.

ReadUps.com

From 2007 - 2013, BookGlutton delivered an innovative social reading experience. For many years, it was the only way people could discuss a book right from the page. Shared commenting was always a core part of the experience, including the ability to leave comments on paragraphs and chat inside chapters. The site represented a great innovation in reading and publishing, and we’ve seen it inspire other entrepreneurs and visionaries. We would like to personally thank all of the users who’ve used our products.
