bookclub2.jpgLibrary customers often ask if we can give them a list of books they’ve read, but we don’t keep such histories. There are several websites to keep track of your reading and one especially easy and fun to use is  www.goodreads.com, a social networking site for readers. You may use it to keep track of your reading, post your own reviews, comment on books, get reviews from other readers who’ve logged in, and share lists with those you invite to join. You can set your preferences to share or not and still be able to read other readers comments and reviews. (Your contact information is never available to strangers). It seems to me the reviews are more succinct and thoughtful than many of the typical “Amazon” reviews. This site is growing each day and it’s great to see so many avid readers out there! Some of you may already be on goodreads. Let us know what you think!

This Goodreads website is great. All sorts of idea of new things to read. Redroom.com is a good site too.
