I finally made time to head over to goodreads to create an account. I heard such great things about the goodreads community and the SFR discussions that go on there.
Like other social media sites, it was pretty easy to set up the account, but really learning how best to use it is more of a challenge. I added some of the books I’ve recommended on this blog. I was tempted to add other books I’ve read in the past, but I quickly realized that could take…er, more time than I want to spend. I became a fan of some authors, but I’m not really sure how to make friends. Is there etiquette to making friends? Do you add everyone you know, everyone you follow on twitter and facebook? Do I create shelves? Should I rate books or make comments or do both? I noticed some authors don’t seem to have any books on their list of books read. Why is that? So many choices. So many questions.
I’d love to hear how you are using goodreads, both readers and writers.
