If you're a fan of YA fiction razOrbill is Penguin's new social network. The name comes from their line of edgy teen and middle grade books, both fiction and non-fiction.
So, what can you do on the site? Watch book trailers and other videos, discuss things on the forums, join groups, see what books Penguin has coming out each month, etc.
This is the newest devoted YA site by a publisher. Simon and Schuster has PulseIt, Random House has Bookurioius, HarperCollins has HarperTeen, and I'm sure there are others. (If you know one, comment it and I'll add it to the list.)
What are the benefits of these sites? Getting teens (and others) to read. 'Nuf said.
