“Are you a reader? If so, what do you read? If you’re not, give these a try and see if you like them.” These are the kinds of questions and comments that you can expect on the book-bearing website called Goodreads.  This URL has the biggest archive of any and every book that you have either loved, liked, or forgotten about. Goodreads  assures readers a world of numerous titles and genres. Not only does this website serve as a home for all books, it also gives you a chance to make friends and create your own virtual book club!

Every year, members (13 or older of course, due to possible graphic situations in certain books) have a choice to set their desired number of books that they would like to read over the entire course of a year. For example, in 2016, my goal was to read 50 books. The website even goes to greater lengths to include the whole community by allowing people to vote on the year’s best book! This can be from any category. This is called the Goodreads Choice Awards (Want to know the best books of 2017? Click Here.)

The best thing about Goodreads (in my opinion) would be having your very own set of recommendations. These recommendations are chosen according to your interests in books. A fresh batch of recommendations also finds its way to you once you’re done reading a book. Did I mention that you can share reviews of all the books you’ve read? As mentally freeing as this sounds, reviews on Goodreads can be both good and brutal. Nevertheless, this is what adds diversity to the widely known ‘book-keeper.’  And if you’re a spoiler type of person, then you also have the option to see spoilers from the reviews of others.

Goodreads is the life to live. It is a gate that opens to a world filled with awe and imagination. Looking for a literary escape? Go to Goodreads (if you’re not already a member). If you are not a member, then I encourage you to stop hesitating and go there Now!
