Goodreads

Two weeks ago I found a social network for people who love to read.  It is called goodreads and apparently it has been around for a few years already.  I never heard of it until just two weeks ago.  I love it!!!  I so much love to read that I can call it an addiction at this point.  Goodreads is for people like me who enjoy reading immensely.  When anyone tells me that they don't like to read I cannot comprehend that.  Not liking to read is a foreign concept to me that I don't even want to understand.  Reading enriches my life.  

Click the goodreads button to join goodreads.


There are many things about goodreads that I love.  First off you are in the online company of other people who feel as you do about reading.  It doesn't make any sense to join if you are not a book lover.   Secondly, you get to interact with some of the authors of the books you are reading.  Many self published authors are on goodreads.  Thirdly, you can rate, review and recommend the books you read.  Fourthly, goodreads is great for keeping track of books that you read.  There is a really fun goodreads challenge that you can enter into each year.  Another great benefit is that you can join any number of groups focusing on genre's, authors, etc.  I have met some wonderful people already just by joining groups.

If you are a book lover and not already a member of goodreads I invite you to check it out.

Hi Lacey,

I had no idea that goodreads was online since 2009. I am glad I found it now and I love it so much. I am glad you stopped by.

Hi Xenia! I have never heard of this site. I'll have to check it out. My Hubs was just telling me how many self published authors end up on the NYTimes best seller list. I'm sure that's due in part to sites like this. Thanks for the tip!
