Do you think this site is needed? Will draw readers?

This article in the San Francisco Chronicle begins “Ivory Madison, serial entrepreneur, doesn't want much from her latest venture, Redroom.com. Not much, that is, except to build it into the Internet's premier site for authors and the discussion of books and ideas. Redroom.com, which premiered Dec. 21, is one of the more ambitious online communities for writers to date and perhaps the most timely, aiming to capitalize on the current potential for profitability of social-networking sites. It features 150 authors (with 400 more to come), ranging from Amy Tan and Salman Rushdie to Edinburgh Castle Pub owner Alan Black; Graham Leggatt, executive director of the San Francisco Film Society, who moonlights as a sci-fi writer; and local mystery writer Cara Black.”

How many other sites for writers and readers can you think of?
