Another Great Site for Book Lovers

A while back I wrote about the great site librarything.com.  A great site for book lovers to catalog their own books and share reviews of books with other members.  I have a similar site to share with you today.  Goodreads.com is a place where you can share book recommendations with other readers.  You can even form online book clubs with other readers anywhere in the world.  I was able to create an account by using my Facebook login.  It was very quick and simple. 

I started playing around with the site this evening.  So far, I really enjoy the site.  Very easy to use and I really enjoy the various lists of "best" or "worst" books.  This list of top young adult books is a great resource for me to use when making purchases for our school library.  It is also amusing to go through the lists to see how many of the "top" books I have read.  Users are able to vote for books and comment on the current list.  Users can also make additions to the list.  Great site for a book geek like myself.  How many of top 100 young adult books have you read?  I am going to go through the list and see what my total is, after I complete my current read.

Great Book So Far


Speaking of my current read, I have started reading Catching Fire and I am hooked.  I figure I will read the entire trilogy by the end of the month.  There is a great deal of excitement for our book club meeting tomorrow at Carlson High School to discuss The Hunger Games, the first book in the trilogy by Suzanne Collins.
