This is the seventh day of the 2017 A to Z Blog Challenge, so I am featuring the letter “G” in today’s post.
I no longer remember how I found out about GOODREADS.COM, but it has become one of my favorite websites. I have a reader’s page and an author’s page on the site. Since I’ve only published one nonfiction book, my author page is not very extensive.
What I like about the site
It costs nothing to set up an account
I can research and follow authors I like.
I can keep a list of books I’ve read as well as a list of the books I want to read.
I can rate books I’ve read on a one- to five-star basis if I so choose.
Another option is that I can write a review of a book I’ve read.
I can see how others have rated a book.
I can read the reviews other readers have written about a book.
There are perpetual book giveaways on Goodreads.com.
I can connect your Goodreads.com account to Facebook. This is optional.
I can keep track of my annual reading challenge on the site.
Based on the books I read, Goodreads.com recommends other books to me.
What’s not to like about the site
Nothing, as far I can tell.
Until my next blog post on Monday
I hope you have a good book to read. If you’re a writer, I hope you have productive writing time.
