Are you a reader? I am. I really enjoy reading a good book. Although I don’t read as much in the summer as I do the rest of the year. Here in the northern part of the USA, one really has to take advantage of any sunlight we get. Days are already getting shorter–aren’t they sis?
Anyway I like to read biographies or memoirs, christian fiction and non-fiction, chick-lit, inspirational books, classics, scrapbooking or crafting books, and the list goes on. Up until about 2.5 years ago, I had no easy way to keep track of what I had read. Then I found Goodreads.
It is a website that is a tracking site as well as a social forum. I can keep track of books I have read, those I am reading, and those I want to read in one, easily accessible, place. On top of that I can follow or be friends with other people and authors to see what they are reading and enjoying. This is an important part of the site. Now when someone, who has similar reading tastes as I do, rates a book at a 4 or a 5, I know it probably is a book I want to read.
My sister and I use this site all the time. Now I know what she is reading and enjoying. We chat about the books we are reading whenever we get together. It brings out the enjoyment of the books even more. My other sister is on Goodreads too, but she doesn’t read as much nor update your site very often.
