I'd be more interested in hearing from real people who like or dislike social reading, rather than the founders of companies who of course think it's the next thing. I find that I like recommending books I've read to a small set of family and close friends (and sometimes lending them, of course), but I truly can't imagine wanting to say something to random other people while reading a book.

Joe is right on this, though it's hard for us traditional authors and publishers to accept. Think of it as a literary coffee shop forum, but electronic and global. It's a good thing.
