Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about online book sites…
Do you have an account with an online book database site (LibraryThing, Shelfari, GoodReads etc)? If so, do you have a preference? Do you use it for – your own record keeping? finding new books to read? social networking?
I use GoodReads (this is me over there) and I use it to keep a record of the books I’ve read and books I want to read (I mean, I sort of do have a list on my website of the books I’ve own but I’ve never kept a thorough account of the books I’ve read over the years until I started using GR). I’ve been active on it since last year and it’s pretty addictive, especially when it comes to finding new books to read and such *blushes* I’ve only started becoming more active with the groups during the past couple of months or so but I do have a number of people on my flist there; a few of them I know fairly well, others I’ve added because we’re in the same groups and such. Probably the best social networking site out there because it focuses on my favourite thing: books! 🙂
Btw, I also use the community profile site over at chapters.indigo.ca (this is me) since I occasionally order online and it’s the major bookstore here in Canada. 🙂
