Those of you that use Goodreads, could you please let me know HOW you use it? There’s no way I can catalog my whole library. I’m thinking of deleting the books I have in there right now (because I can’t remember how I was going to use it) and then start to use it just to keep track of books I read this year. Then maybe another shelf for booklists I’d like to track.
I’d love to hear how you use Goodreads. Thanks.
I’d never even heard of Goodreads.
I think, when I have time, I’ll list the overflowing books on the bookshelf. Then the ones on the shelf, then…
It sure looks like there are lot of options. I’ll agree.
Yeah, it can almost be overwhelming. Years ago, when I first signed up, I thought I would catalog our home library. Hahahah…10,000 books and I’m thinking, heck no. But if I do it going forward with what I’ve read, I think that will be good. I’ve always wondered how many books I read in a year.
Then I think I might use it to sort categories of books, like poetry, which I’d like to keep track of, and my writing craft books.
I use it to track what I read, but I didn’t try to catalog my previously read books in there. I just have such a bad memory that I figured having an online list I could refer to would be good. But it’s not a catalog of the books I own. I want to post notes too, of what I like and don’t like about a book, but I’m worried about them being visible. I’ve chosen privacy settings so it should be just me able to see them, since I’m not really on there to network. But I’m still nervous. I haven’t made any bad comments in my notes on poetry books, for instance, because I would hate for it to become public and then I’ve badmouthed the work of some poet I know and like.
As you can see, I’m still trying to figure out how best to use it:>)
What a moving post your son wrote. I see he has the same writing skill as his mom–getting at the truth, even when it hurts…
