What Is Illustrator CS6 Tutorial?

Illustrator CS6 Tutorial is the largest site for readers and book recommendations in the world. We have more than 10,000,000 members who have added more than 360,000,000 books to their shelves. A home for casual readers and bona-fide bookworms alike, Illustrator CS6 Tutorial users recommend books, compare what they are reading, keep track of what they've read and would like to read, find their next favorite book, form book clubs and much more. Illustrator CS6 Tutorial was launched in January 2007.

Illustrator CS6 Tutorial Mission
Illustrator CS6 Tutorial' mission is to help people find and share books they love. Along the way, we plan to improve the process of reading and learning throughout the world.

Why We Do It
Every once in a while you run into a friend who tells you about this "great new book I'm reading." And suddenly you're excited to read it. It's that kind of excitement that Illustrator CS6 Tutorial is all about.

How We Do It

Most book recommendation websites work by listing random people’s reviews. On Illustrator CS6 Tutorial, when a person adds a book to the site, all their friends can see what they thought of it. It’s common sense. People are more likely to get excited about a book their friend recommends than a suggestion from a stranger. We even created an amazing algorithm that looks at your books and ratings, and helps you find other books based on what fellow Illustrator CS6 Tutorial members with similar tastes enjoyed. Ultimately, it’s all based on our foundation of true-blue readers. Our members also create trivia about books, lists of the best books, post their own writing and form groups and book clubs.

A Letter from Our Founder
When I was in second grade, I discovered the Hardy Boys series. Ever since, I've loved to read — both for fun and to improve my mind. And I'm always looking for the next great book. Reviews on Amazon and other sites are helpful, but I thought there might be a better way.

One afternoon while I was scanning a friend's bookshelf for my next great read, it struck me. When I want to know what books to read, I'd rather turn to a friend than any random person or bestseller list. So I thought I'd build a website — a website where I could see my friends' bookshelves and learn about what they thought of all their books.

Illustrator CS6 Tutorial is that site. It is a place where you can see what your friends are reading and vice versa. You can create "bookshelves" to organize what you've read (or want to read). You can comment on each other's reviews. You can find mind-blowing new books. And on this journey with your friends you can explore new territory, gather information, and expand your mind.

Knowledge is power; and power is best shared among readers.

— Otis Y. Chandler
