One of my new favorite places on the web is Goodreads.  I like it better than Library Thing because they don't charge a fee to use their services.  It appeals to me because I've been wanting to take an inventory of our family library for a long time but I didn't want to do all that typing. Now, whenever I have free time, I add books from our shelves to my Goodreads bookshelf by doing a quick search.  I also rate them. I hope to record most of my books eventually and then download a file that lists them.

Soooo... that is the reason I gave my husband.

He replied, "Can't we SEE what we have right there on the shelves?"

He just doesn't understand, does he, Fellow Book Lovers?

Okay, okay. The real reason I need to do this it is because I need to spend time with my books.

If you are already on Goodreads, why don't you find me and friend me...

  1. Thanks for the heads-up about Goodreads! I've tried so many different ways to keep track of our books but still end up ordering double copies sometimes. eeek.

  2. Hi Becca,

    I'm so glad I got to meet you at the book fair!

    I am adding my books quickly to Goodreads but I am going to have to go back and find the exact editions I have. Some of the editions on my Goodreads shelves are not what I own, but that is going to be time-consuming. Eventually...

  3. Goodreads is ADDICTING! :)

    Amy Marie (aka fotofreak618 - yes, I'm following you everywhere! ;) I promise I'm not a weird do! :D)

  4. Amy, you are too funny!
