If you’re a voracious reader like I am, you’ve probably come across Goodreads. Its a place where us book lovers can unite, talk about our passion and peruse the latest novels from debut and bestselling authors alike. In theory, this is all well and good. What’s not to love about a social networking site that allows for such an opportunity?
Sadly though, I’ve never been any good at Goodreads. Every few months I’ll find myself craving some time on the website. Then, within a few days, I’ve forgotten about it. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve downloaded the app only to delete it within two weeks time.
But why? Why can’t a book lover like myself make a habit out of using Goodreads? It’s certainly has a lot more to offer than other social networking sites such as Facebook or Twitter. So, what’s the problem? Hell if I know.
I’m now on my third Goodreads account and have spent the last few days adding every book that I can remember having read in the last two years. I’ve also committed to a reading challenge. Though, according to this challenge, I’m three books behind my goal… How can that even be possible?
So, dear reader, now I want to know about you. Are you on Goodreads? If you are, tell me about your experiences and, while you’re at it, stop by my Goodreads profile so that we can connect.
Until then, happy reading!
