I am looking for this, but cannot find yet. Do we have any Stack Exchange site which serves the purpose of book recommendations, reviews, analysis, feedbacks, etc.?

This would have been great, as people could discuss, or give a heads up, or just leave a good overview/feedback on a particular book that another might find interesting.

I think I do not do bad if I ask this here; however, if this questions is not supposed to be here, kindly let me know.

    It does finally. There's the reason explained why such sites don't exist at the SE network. Probably not the answer you expected to hear, but it is like it is. – πάντα ῥεῖ Aug 19 at 13:24

    There is Literature for questions about books, but we do not accept recommendation questions, or discussiony type questions like reviews or feedback. You're welcome to join Literature chat for discussion with other SE users interested in books, and we also have a community-run Tumblr for short book reviews. – Rand al'Thor Aug 19 at 14:02

    @Randal'Thor but that is specifically about a Literature genre of the books, right? I'm looking for something about Computer Science, and Software Engineering, in particular. – Giorgi Tsiklauri Aug 19 at 14:29

    Oh, if you're looking for tech textbooks, then indeed that wouldn't be on-topic for Literature. I didn't realise; "books" is pretty vague :-) – Rand al'Thor Aug 19 at 14:30

    @Randal'Thor yes, tech/science books.. it's a huge problem in reality. There are tons and tons and zillions of tons of the books.. yet I can hand-pick probably 2 or 3 I consider as a good book, worth reading. In many cases, book can even confuse the reader. So, I'm a big advocate of clean literature and education materials in CS/SE. A side note: GoodReads doesn't work well for this matter.. – Giorgi Tsiklauri Aug 19 at 14:32
  • Good point. I think you'll have to find a forum for your questions, they're not well suited for a Q&A site. Having said that, I know of a couple of posts where it was done anyway but most of those are closed (for good reason) and out-of-date. – Mast Aug 19 at 14:53

    @GiorgiTsiklauri Some sites keep book lists and resource links on old questions or in tag-wikis. E.g. the c++ tag wiki on Stack Overflow. – πάντα ῥεῖ Aug 19 at 15:49
