idreambooks.com: Literary Rotten Tomatoes

With the official launch of idreambooks.com last week, book lovers will now have a new favorite website to find a good read and browse critic reviews. Following a model simliar to Rotten Tomatoesidreambooks.com aggregates numerous book reviews from around the web and gives books a percentage rating. According to their website, a critic review is rated “either ‘Must Read!’ or ‘Don’t Read’ before calculating its score.” Only books with a 70% rating or better are recommended, and awarded with a smiley-faced icon. Books that receive lower ratings are badged with a sad-faced icon. The website draws reviews from the online versions of reputable newspapers and magazines, as well as individual blogs and critics that have an established history of credible book reviews.

“I am a big fan of RottenTomatoes and I use it all the time to decide on a movie. When it comes to books, I like to read non-fiction and I have always wanted something like RottenTomatoes for books. I couldn’t find one on the internet for the longest time. When I talked about this idea with my friends, they liked it too. So we decided to develop it,” explained Rahul Simha, co-founder of idreambooks.com, in an interview with AppNewser.
