I love to read and wish I had more time to do so. This weekend I started a NEW book that was recommended to me. I love, loVE, LOVE recommended books from friends and family because there’s nothing worse than spending time reading a book you don’t enjoy…right? What a waste of time! Recommended books, at least, have a better chance of enjoyment than just random books. I’m all for time efficiency! I’m also loving Shelfari.com where I can keep track of the books I’ve read and also the books I want to read. It’s a virtual bookshelf. I once started a book that sounded quite familiar and I wondered aloud to my husband if we’d maybe seen a movie with the same plot as I was reading. He mentioned he thought he’d seen me read that book before. Oops! He was right! I had read the book before and had simply forgotten I had. So now I also type a short summary into Shelfari to jog my memory of what the book was about, in case I have that problem in the future. My shelfari page is strictly for my reference. I don’t really have time to use it for any social media purposes, but I love having it available! Some of my friends use GoodReads, and I’m sure there are other sites out there. If you like to read and haven’t tried a similar site….try something NEW! You’ll like it! OR pick up a NEW book!….and be sure to let me know of any good recommendations!
I love reading books other people recommend. My monthly book club votes on a book and we get together and discuss it. I’ve read some great books that I probably wouldn’t have read otherwise!
I feel the same about my book club! Do you have a list of books your club has read? I’d love to check it out and compare and/or find new possibilities! BTW…I really like your site! I’ll be visiting it often!
