Goodreads – Finding My Way Around

I’m a writer. *clears throat* Let me rephrase. I’m a writer, when I’m not busy with all the interruptions life throws at me. I’ve recently published two books, and I’m slowly heading up the learning curve for social media sites. Wow. Talk about time consuming.

I have been a member of Goodreads for a while now, as a reader. I just recently updated my author page. Now that I’m joining groups and exploring, I feel like I could spend ALL day on this site. I’d enjoy it too! Reading is one of my passions, and Goodreads is like a world-wide meeting for people that share that same passion.

So, today, I finally learned how to link my blog with Goodreads. Probably not that exciting to hear about for most of you, but for me it was a victory. It wasn’t even that hard, but I couldn’t figure it out up until today. Silly me. That’s what Youtube is for. :)

If you haven’t signed up with Goodreads yet, you should go there now and get started. You won’t understand most of my blog today if you aren’t a member. But…let me say…I have so many new goals. I’m trying to imagine actually listing ALL the books I’ve read. That would be fun. Then, can you imagine actually taking time to review them all? Not really possible in one big chunk, but it’s fun to imagine. I do hope to rate and review everything I read from this point forward, and I’ll occasionally add a few from the past from time to time.

I don’t know why this excites me so much. I see other readers that have been doing this for a while, and I’m envious. I guess it’s just a way to see a record of my favorite adventures, characters, and genres all listed in one place.

I must sound like such a book nerd right now. *sigh* That’s okay. I am. I promise to make future posts more exciting, and less about me (most of the time). :)

If you’re a Goodreads member, and you have it all figured out, feel free to leave suggestions for navigating and organizing my books, groups, etc… I’d love to find time to contribute more to the few fun groups I belong to, but I’m busy writing, and daydreaming about being organized.
