A lot of people have been posting about the new things they picked up over the holiday season, so I thought I’d share my favorite gift. And it didn’t come from my husband, or from my kids, but from a commenter to my blog (that’s right, Laura, I’m talking about you!). She emailed me to tell me that she hadn’t seen The Body Finder on Goodreads yet, and would I mind if she posted it there.
“Sure”, I email back casually as I race over to their website to see what it’s all about…
…and OMG…it’s like social networking heaven. For book nerds. Like me.
So, a lot of you already know about Goodreads, I know this because I’ve since met you there. But I know for a fact (Tamara) that several of you do not. And those who don’t must run (and I mean RUN) on over to check it out!
What is it? It’s like an online book club. A big one. Huge. And you can mark books you want to read, review and rate the books you have read, “friend” people, read other's reviews before you decide to pick a book up, join groups with others who have like interests, and even virtual-meet the authors behind some of the books you love. (And you can add The Body Finder to your “to-read” list…hint-hint.)
I LOVE THIS!!!
How did I not know about this sooner? How do I have MySpace, Facebook, and even Twitter, and yet Goodreads failed to even blip on my radar? I honestly don’t know, I can’t explain it, but now that I’ve found it, I’m hooked. Like crack. I’m a Goodreads-junkie.
You should be a Goodreads-junkie too.
