GoodReads

Have you heard of Goodreads?  It is "a free website for book lovers".

I have 4 bookshelves:  currently reading, read, ditching (for those books I start and can't bring myself to finish), and books to-read.  You can see what I'm reading right now (usually 3 or 4 books), what I've read with ratings and reviews, and what I want to read.

I set myself a goal to read 52 books this year.  Goodreads keeps track of my progress for me, letting me know if I am ahead, behind, or right on track.



You can check out other people's bookshelves and reviews.  Once you get to a certain number of books read (20 I believe), it will also suggest books that you might like.  Love this feature.

If you are already signed up, please 'friend me'. My name is 'tcohoe'.  If you need to register, here is the link to sign up:  Goodreads

I keep getting invited to Goodreads, but I've been delaying adding yet another social media addiction. ;) I may just need to check it out, though!

I am say to say, I bet I have only read 8 or 10 books this year, tops.

I only really get to read on vacation! And I can hammer out like a book a day. 4 bookshelfs! That sounds awesome. I collect trade paperback and I'm on my 5th lg Rubbermaid full. They will eventually get on a shelf!!

Terry, came over from your good-bye on Peas. Thank you for this link. I am that person who sleeps with two books just in case one falls off and I can't reach it!
