It's Good to read.

I have added a widget on the right side with a link to Good Reads.  The other day, when I logged into my account, up popped a list of people that were friends of friends.  I chose a few people who have blogs I read, or who I know read mine, and requested to be their friend.  Happily, all 3 Ok'd me.  Phew.  (I don't do Facebook so this is as close as it gets for me!)  Thank you, ladies.

Good Reads is a fun website to be a member of.  I've almost completely given up my book review blogs because I can read reviews  on Good Reads and get a feel for any book I might like to read.  I don't usually want to read a long drawn out description of a book.... I just want an idea of what people think. 

I have yet to join any of the reading groups, but maybe someday.  I don't want reading to feel like homework but sometimes it's fun to be part of a group reading the same book or the same type of books. 

I will be away from my computer for the next week or so.  I can read blogs but won't be posting on my own.  I fully expect to return with a couple finishes to post about, maybe a book or 2 read, and possibly an adventure or 2 to write about.  Now, to find all the chargers I can't leave home without. 


  1. I also joined Goodreads a couple of months ago and love it. I often browse the reviews of books that sound interesting or of authors I've already read.

  2. I have enjoyed Goodreads more than I ever thought possible! I am reading a few books outside my typical genres and enjoying them and I'm finding good books to read simply by looking at books other people are reading. It's been fun and totally changed how I select books to read!
