Reading, what is it good for? Well, a lot of things. It is a great way to pass time on a wonderfully sunny spring evening. You can learn something new like cutting your household budget from the book Be CentsAble by Chrissy Pate. Maybe you want to read the new Nicholas Sparks book: The Last Song. With so many books to choose from, how do you keep track of them all?
Goodreads is a wonderful site that can help you remember those books you have read, make a reading wish list, and interact with others. It is a social networking site for people who love to read. It is really easy to sign-up. You just need an email address and create a password and login. Once you create your account you can:
- enter books you have read
- make a wish list for those you want to read
- answer trivia
- join a book club (like CADL’s Brewpub Book Club)
- post reviews
- tag books
- search for books by author or title and read reviews from other readers
There is a lot more you can do with this site. Sign-up and experiment. When you sign-up, visit our Brewpub book club group!
