If you are a bookworm like I am and love social networking, then check out Goodreads. It is a site where you can list all the books you have read, write reviews of them, see what books your friends are reading and chat to others with the same taste in books that you have.
I am loving entering my books onto Goodreads, although I have only got a fraction of them up there. I have decided just to add them as I read them now or else I will be entering books on there for days. I also love seeing what other people are reading as it is a great way to find new authors. If only books didn’t cost about $30 in this country. How am I supposed to afford all the books I want to read? Then again, the many bookcases in our house are all full, so I would have nowhere to put all these new books I want to buy anyway.
Is there a book exchange or something like that in Australia? It would be great to be able to pass books along to people and get a chance to read all the books I want to read but probably might not want to buy. Unfortunately my local library is not that great for the types of books I want to read. However, if I ever get interested in Mills & Boons novels I will know where to go.
If you are a member of Goodreads or decide to sign up, then please add me. I only have two friends on there at the moment so I am feeling a bit unpopular. Besides, I would really love to see the type of books that you all like to read. Why yes, I am the kind of person who on visiting someone’s house checks out their bookshelf first. How did you guess?
