Fun Web Pages about Books

Both NPR and the New York Times have built really flashy sites about favorite books. NPR's site came first, Best Books of 2013, and has mostly (not entirely) adult books. Then NYPL constructed their Children's Books 2013 site. They look alike, yes they do: the two public institutions had many discussions, and NPR's 'Book Concierge' code was open source, so NYPL did not have to reinvent something that already worked very well. This is pretty inspiring in itself, aside from all those gorgeous books...
