Good reads

Thanks to T over at Quack Attack, I started a profile at Goodreads.com. The site allows you to track everything you've read, are reading and would like to read. This appeals to me for a lot of reasons. Primarily because I go through books so quickly and I borrow them so I never remember what I've read.

I also like the community aspect of the site where you can have friends and see what they're reading and also join groups. Kind of like a book club but on the internet. I would love to have a real in-person book club but I shy away because I've never heard of one that focuses on books that aren't new. I don't want to have to run out to Chapters every month. I go to the shelves of either my mom or J's grandmother when I need something to read.

I was worried that having a new baby would get in the way of my reading - it totally hasn't. Because of the pumping and bottle feeding, I have lots of time while I pump to do things. Things that I'm able to do while hooked up to a machine. Playing with the kid, stroking my cat and reading are my top three.

If you like to read set up a profile at goodreads.com and add me, thelifeofk, as a friend.

  1. I'm really glad you're enjoying it, too! It's a fun little tool - even more so when you have friends following along. :)

    I, too, have always wanted to join a book club but never had the resources or patience to sit with a group of people who might not share my perspective on certain things ... so this is definitely a substitute I can work with.

    Happy reading!
