Favorite Apps: Goodreads

I am an avid reader. If you know me or read my blog, you know this.  Back in 2007, I started keeping track of all the books I read.  Shortly after this, I discovered a website called Goodreads. It is a sort of social networking site for readers. You can follow what your friends are reading and see their reviews of books, or get recommendations of books to read based on what you have read or are reading.

I use it primarily to keep track of the books I’m reading, want to read and have read. Each year, since 2007 has a digital shelf so I can see each book I read that year.  This is where the app comes in handy.  Whenever someone recommends a book, I can easily add it to my “To Read” shelf. On the rare occasion that I can’t remember if I read the book, I can look it up.

If you are a reader and like to see recommendations or just like to track what you read, I highly recommend this app/site.  Goodreads also provides the currently reading widget on the side of my blog.
