I want to know if you’re on GR. I signed up in July and am still learning my way around it. I do like the recommendations that come up after I finish and log in a book. And I like the conversations in the various groups available to join. Some put out way too many emails, and I left those.
But it’s fun to see announcements just about books and hear what’s coming out from my favorite authors. Send me a friend request if you like, I’m not sure I know how yet.
I set my goal in January to read 80 books and I’m at 74! I think I might make it. I have several short reads in my library pile, fun Christmas books by Debbie Macomber or Anne Perry or Donna VanLiere.
They say writers should be readers and I sure am! Last year I read 77 books, so upped it just a bit for 2015. I also didn’t know then that I would put my first book out-Yay!! So, next year I’ll probably stick to the 75-80 range.
What are your reading goals for the year? Did you make one? How are you doing? If you don’t make reading goals, how many books might you read in a year? Share with us!
P.S. Just a few hours left to win the books in the above picture! Good luck!
I am with you on the emails- used it at first but got away from it
80 books a year!
Love GoodReads and I too set a goal for this year and passed that goal. You can opt out of a lot emails at the settings prompt. You may want to try that. Happy reading.
I love GoodReads and have discovered many great books through their website. My latest novel, Christmas in Wattle Lane, is going to be listed as a giveaway on GoodReads next week. I find listing your book as a giveaway is a good way of getting it noticed.
I try to read as much as I can, but I don’t get through anywhere near as many books as you! I would probably read about 25 books a year. I do buy a lot of craft books as well, though, and spend a lot of time browsing through them.
