GoodReads

Lately I have really been enjoying GoodReads, the “social networking site for readers”. Unlike other social networking sites like Facebook, GoodReads is pretty much just about books — what you’ve read, what you’re reading, and what you’re planning on reading.

You can rate each book from zero to 5 stars, and, if you wish, write a review about it. Just seeing the books that my friends have rated highly or are planning to read has added a lot of books to my “to read” queue (which I keep track of at GoodReads).

You can also write reviews for books, and comment on others’ reviews.

Of course, like all social networking sites, it’s more valuable to you the more friends you have who are also part of it. But if you’re reading this, chance are that you’re already friend of mine, which means at least one of your friends is already a member.
