A GoodReads member relates: “I’ve been a member of GoodReads, the social networking site for people who love to read, for more than a year now. What I like about the site is you can list the books you have read, give a brief overview and your opinion about the book and share it with your social networking friends in other networks including Facebook and Twitter. One of the coolest features is, if a friend is reading a book and you like the review, you can click on the book and it will be linked to Amazon where you can purchase the book.
I like that you can keep track of the books you read too. You can list them under “to read,” “read” or “reading.” Since I review a lot of social networking books and love to read business and marketing books, I had plenty on my list. When I typed in the name of the book, the book came up and was placed in my shelf. I joined three book groups so that I can get involved in the discussions and meet others who have the same interests as I have.
If you love to read any type of book, you should consider joining Goodreads. I prefer GoodReads to Facebook.”
