Does any one use Goodreads? Do we have our own MN group on there at all?

MyBrainIsOutOfChristmasTunes Tue 06-Dec-11 21:40:41

I use it, but I don't know of a MN group...

Argh that's a pity.

How does it work?

The group or Goodreads? Goodreads you just add books you've read, and rate them, and find recommendations for books you want to read. I've managed to get 102 books on my to read list ... going to be very busy!

I didn't know about this website. I shall be spending quite a lot of time on it from now on grin.

I am on goodreads too [http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/2492312-kelle Kelle]

I am also on Librarything, was my home of homes, but tgey don't have an app so it can be months until I log into an actual computer to update. At least with goodreads they have an app that means I can add and update easily.

I joined the group and added you as a friend.

I'm on goodreads too if anyone wants to add me.

Yay thanks for joining the group! Added those who have added me grin

elkiedee Tue 13-Dec-11 12:25:35

I was probably one of the people who added you juneybean. Although I much prefer Librarything

NanAstley Tue 13-Dec-11 13:45:14

I've joined the group as well (long-time lurker)

juneybean Fri 16-Dec-11 16:36:06

I'm glad people are joining the group! I've added January's book of the month to our "shelf" so we can discuss it if any one is following the MN book of the month and I'll do the same for each month.

I added you too JB smile, you've probably never heard of me but in a past life I was MrsDanversBites...going to look out for the rest of you.

juneybean Sun 18-Dec-11 13:38:42

Yay I'm glad you're all joining the group, if any one has any other ideas for the group feel free to start discussions and that :D

juneybean Mon 26-Dec-11 22:22:56

Bumping this to see if we can drag any others over to the dark side grin

elkiedee Mon 26-Dec-11 23:13:58

Anyone been given any great new books? I've just bought lots for myself, some in the Kindle sale (I did get a substantial Amazon voucher) and some from the charity shops and bargain bookshop here.

juneybean Mon 26-Dec-11 23:19:12

I got given the Millennium Trilogy, started book 1 today!

Abcinthia Tue 27-Dec-11 13:59:52

I got The Weaker Vessel by Antonia Fraser for my birthday. I've been having a look on Amazon at books but I just can't decide what I want.

NanAstley Wed 28-Dec-11 00:05:51

The Weaker Vessel sounds very interesting! Is it good?

Abcinthia Wed 28-Dec-11 15:21:49

I haven't started reading it and probably won't for a week or two (I've got to finish two others I'm currently reading). I've read a few of Antonia Fraser's books before and I have always found them to be be excellent, so I have high hopes for The Weaker Vessel.

I am on Goodreads but haven't used it much as can be a bit USA dominated,will join the group though it will reinvigorate me!
