Aaron Miller and his team have released BookGlutton an online bookstore and social network meant to facilitate social reading. It features a Dojo-driven e-book reading app with chat and annotation, and the store now offers over 500 O’Reilly titles for sale.
The site is built using Dojo and PHP and features pagination, real-time chat, group and private modes and asynchronous annotation of each paragraph in a book. It can be embedded in other sites as a widget, and is one of only a few web-based apps which can read the open, reflowable e-book format known as ePub.
Nice work guys!
