I had heard of it a while back but never did anything with it until this summer when I joined. Like it a lot.

Goodreads and Shelfari (and probably others) are websites that you can track your reading, add books you've read and want to read, and find like-minded people for book discussions in groups.

It's sort of like Librarythingy and another site I can't remember the name of. You list your books read etc. There are reviews there, ratings, conversations.

http://www.goodreads.com/ is the main site.

I'm there at http://www.goodreads.com/MadameVauquer

Goodreads also has lots of literature quizzes, which is probably an added advantage for funtrivia readers.

I am locking this thread as I don't think it is quite the thing to advertise sites that rival ours with quizzes etc. Sorry
