Goodreads

One of my favourite things to do is read. Recently I came across the Goodreads site.  It’s a great place to check out what ordinary readers think about a book, and make contact with other readers. Kind of a “Facebook for book lovers”.

The big features for me are checking book ratings (often compiled from thousands of votes), the book reviews, being able to keep a booklist with categories i.e. to-read, read etc, and having the ability to follow or “friend” other readers with similar tastes (you can find these by running a comparison of other readers’ booklists against your own). There are also virtual book clubs you can join.  Since my current reading habits are erratic, I haven’t joined a book club yet.

If you like books, check it out.
