Founded in 1974, the National Books Critics Circle is an organization that includes over 900 book reviewers who are "interested in honoring quality writing and communicating with one another about common concerns." The Circle offers forums around the United States, and they also give annual awards for books in six different categories. On their homepage, visitors can learn about these annual awards, catch up on their weblog posts, learn about upcoming events and readings, and read their press releases. The "Articles" section is quite good, and it includes recent reviews and features like "Six Questions for James Mustich, Editor of The Barnes & Noble Review". Additionally, interested parties can learn about membership in the Circle and the current board members.
