Thanks, Jacqui Murray, for reminding me of the many happy facets of Goodreads.
I joined Goodreads as a digital way to keep track of the books I read. Over time, it has grown to a community where I chat with like-minded bibliophiles who love books, words, and anything related. Here are some of the activities I pursue on Goodreads:
Chat with those who read the same book
There are lots of ways to connect with like-minded readers, starting with Discussion Groups. I get a lot of feedback from Goodreads’ members on reviews I post which I always follow up on. If it sounds like we have similar interests, I reach out, say hi, comment on their reviews or book choices.
Get recommendations in my genre
Most authors I like only write a book a year so I’m always looking for new writers. Goodreads is a great place to find those.
