I’ve been trying out alternatives to Goodreads, and shepherd.com is one you might not have heard of. As a reader, I can scroll through myriad book categories (“The best books about __________”) and see recommendations that are informed and passionate.

As an author, if I create a category and write five brief, compelling descriptions of books that belong in it, I may list my bio and blurb of my own book. Nifty, no?

For what it’s worth, I called my category “The best books about men and women breaking unwritten rules.”
