Goodreads was recommended to me by another blogger when I said back in January that one of my new year's resolutions was to read everyday.
I suspect many of you are already familiar with the website, but there may be a few who aren't, and to them I say, "Get your butt over there and sign up! Please. Maybe. I mean, if you want to."
The idea is that you tell the website what books you've read, and whether or not you've enjoyed them by rating them out of 5, and it then spews out a load of recommendations. Magic!
That's basically all I use it for at the moment; getting ideas for what to read next, but there's so much more that I could do if I wanted. There are creative writing groups, groups that discuss specific books, book reviews, quizzes, trivia, giveaways, ebooks - plenty to keep you busy for hours!
One thing that I particularly like is the control you get over how many emails you receive. I've opted for just getting the monthly newsletter, but you can choose to receive emails pretty much daily if you like.
So yes, go get yourself signed up. And no, this bloglet, despite appearances, was not sponsored by Goodreads.
Question: Where do you like to get your book recommendations? Friends, family, online, book groups?
