Simon & Schuster has developed a book-focused social networking site for teens aged 14 to 18 called Pulse It.
Site members can read one book a month online for free. S&S says books "will be a combination of titles that have just been released or are soon-to-be published." Participants earn points for reviews and other posts and site actions, and can win free books and other prizes.
Simon & Schuster says the site was a natural outgrowth of their Pulse It Advisory Board, which provided 3,000 teens with free books in exchange for feedback.
The website is here. To become a member you must: "be a legal resident of one (1) of the fifty (50) United States or D.C. and between the ages of 14 and 18".
