Online Obsessions: Goodreads

First there was Pinterest, then Instagram, and now, in the latest online obsession to catch my eye, Goodreads. While I may be a bit late to the game, ever since setting up a profile last week, I’ve been satisfying my inner geek by rating books I've read over the years, tracking those I’m either currently reading or can’t wait to check out, and connecting with friends to compare their own literary loves and hates.

  1. Hi there! Yes I am on Goodreads and I love using this site to track what books I have read and what I still want to read. It's also great to get recommendations from your friends on new reads. My profile is:

  5. I joined Goodreads awhile back but never followed through with it. I'm also late to the game with Pinterest, though I love Instagram. Maybe I'll give Goodreads another shot - I was in law school when I joined and didn't have a ton of time to read for fun, so maybe that's why I never got into it.

    I've been dragging out 50 Shades as I've loved it and haven't had anything else lined up, so this sounds like a fantastic idea!

  15. I've never tried Goodreads (but I used to use Visual Bookshelf on Facebook). I am still very fascinated with Pinterest and Instagram. They are great for short attention spans.

  16. I love goodreads. It's really motivated me to read more. I'm on my 12th book for 2012. That's a major record for me! I'm Laura Metzdorff on goodreads and would love to keep up with what you're reading. (ps...i'm back.)
