The "Reading Experience Database" (RED) is a project conducted by the Open University to collect data about the reading experiences of readers of all nationalities in Britain and those of British subjects abroad from 1450 to 1945. The database contains thousands of evidences of reading experiences, which have might have been extracted from published material, and mostly concern books. As part of the initiative, we are currently converting this database in a linked data format, and connecting this data to DBPedia. The idea would be to connect the both the books read, and the sources of evidences to bibliographical information from open-biblo, and creating a browsing interface to obtain books together with accounts of experiences from readers of these books.

(I'm trying to put together a prototype of this. Hopefully it will be available tonight).
