Upcoming nonfiction review sites?

Is there a place like fantasticfiction for nonfiction books?

I like fantasticfiction as I can check out what is upcoming in books (so I can put them on my reserve list at the library and add to my to-read list on goodreads) and would love it if such a thing existed for non-fiction.

I always find it hit and miss at trying to find nonfiction that grabs me and having a site that lists upcoming ones and gives "similar recommendations" would be uber helpful.

If that's impossible, any recommendations on where I can find good reviews of nonfiction? I've checked out the nonfiction group on LibraryThing and it seems to be just ppl listing off the books read but w/ no reviews.

Best answer: Try Bookmarks magazine, either online or get an oldschool hard copy subscription, for a bimonthly summary of reviews from a variety of sources for nonfiction (and fiction) books.

You might ask your local library if they subscribe to the Kirkus Reviews, and if they do, if they might let you take a look at it every so often.

You might also look around on Google for non-fiction book blogs, or keep an eye out on LibraryThing's Early Reviewer program. I add the interesting-looking ER books to my library and tag them so that I remember to go back and check them out once the reviews start coming in.
