Book summary sites/services -- Any recommendations?

I'm curious to see if anyone has experience with book summaries.

Preferably something more than a page long so it can actually represent the content, but short enough to read in less than 15 mins. Am interested in business, tech, politics, fiction, biography, etc. Would like to see popular books included, but doesn't have to be completely current.

Free sites would be ideal, but inexpensive subscriptions could be good also, and might be required for any decent content.

Would also like sites that allow printing or have something like HTML/Word/txt formats which can easily be put on ebook readers like the Sony Reader.

Any ideas?

I found metacritic in my search for tv show ratings.. they also rate books.. They rate them by pulling in reviews from as many other sites as they can (so the final score is based on overall net reviews..)

Try them -

http://www.metacritic.com/books/

(incidentally, most of the books on their 'top list' are *not* on the connect store )

Actually I was thinking more about something like http://www.summary.com/cgi-bin/Soundview.storefront or http://summaries.com/ but Sony Reader friendly and less expensive.
