Goodreads comes through!

I had joined Goodreads.com to track the books I had read, to be able to rate and review them, and keep a to read list. I discovered they had drawings for free books. 6 out of 7 days they said I had won a book. I got the very first one today, so I can attest to the legitimacy  of these contests!  I would recommend Goodreads to anyone that reads. They also allowed me to set a goal of how many books I will read this year. I said 100. I have read close to 20 so far.

What goals do you have for this year?

  1. First of all respect for sharing your personal thoughts with the world through this blog. Isn't it wonderful how the internet can bring likeminded people together.
    Thanks for recommending goodread. My usual strategy for buying new books is the old fashioned way of going to a bookshop and picking one with a pretty cover (yes I know you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover, but still). Hope they can actually recommend me some books. And how exciting you won a free book!

  5. I love reading too and I've got a goodreads account to keep track of what I've read and what I want to read. I've only set myself the goal for 15 books though so you're a lot more ambitious than me (I have read 8 already though which is great for me!)

  6. Ps. If you like getting free books to read/review you should check out the website NetGalley as well. I've only recently discovered it but I'm loving all the new options for books

  7. I love Good Reads! I use it to find new books and keep track of what I am reading. The only thing I don't love about it are the comments. Sometimes when I'm reading reviews of a book there are spoilers that ruin the book so be careful hahah
