goodreads


I signed up at goodreads.com recently and LOVE it. I have to admit that for the past few years I haven't read much. Becoming a mommy has been a busy job and finding the time to read the scriptures was a challenge many days. However, this past year, when I read the Twilight series and Chronicles of Narnia books I rediscovered my love for the written word. I have read several books over the past year and its such a good feeling! Its the "me" time that I have been needing, well, besides blogging:) Not only is it fun, but its good for the mind and soul. When my friend, Katie, told me about goodreads last month, I signed right up. I love it because you can rate books you've read, write your own reviews, create "to-read" book lists, connect with friends who love reading, and most of all, get book recommendations from those friends. It has also inspired me to read more. For some reason, when I click "read" it gives me a high:) Its like a way to show someone that I did it, that I accomplished something that week. I know I may be one of the last people on earth to join, but I'm glad I did. If you are a goodreader, find me! If you aren't, become one!
I think goodreads.com should pay me for this bit of advertising:)

I have gotten emails regarding this, but I don't ever do it. I probably won't either. I am a reader of the most boring kind. Information, politics, health and spiritual.

Not to many want to follow those :) Boring...

It must be good though, so many are on it. Have fun.

I think they should pay you as well Holly!! I love to read, but only now have the chance to fit it in when I go to bed at night. I usually only get a few pages read before I am falling asleep.
