You may or not have heard of ‘Goodreads’ but if you like books, writers and literature then maybe you should take a look. It’s the world’s largest site for readers and book recommendations. Their mission is to help people find and share books they love. Goodreads launched in January 2007.
- See what books your friends are reading
- Track the books you’re reading, have read, and want to read
- Check out your personalized book recommendations tailored to your literary tastes
- Find out if a book is a good fit for you from our community’s reviews
At time of writing there are 90 million members and over 2.6 billion books online so it’s not exactly a small site!
You can check out my own profile here and I’d love you to follow me!
Anyone can join and it’s free so why not sign up and start getting great book ideas? If you do and add me as a friend I’ll certainly add you back but you can also use Facebook, Twitter and your email to find friends who also use the site.
As well as finding and reviewing books you can also vote for your favourite books / writers. Here is an example of a vote about ‘Welsh poets‘, which features some great books by Welsh authors.
