I have heard that Goodreads is a great site for authors and readers alike. So I spent some time setting up a profile and adding some of the books that I’ve read. Wow! There are too many for me to add them all.But I’m working on it. Especially the books written by authors I know personally. I’ve also reviewed a few and rated them all.

That’s something that readers don’t do enough of, IMO. Give the author feedback. I don’t care how big the author is. Knowing that a reader took the time to rate or review your book is an amazing feeling. It’s like when you were in school and the most popular kid in class said hello. It’s that kind of amazing.

You see, to an author, the readers are the popular kids. They are the ones that matter. Their opinions can make or break an author’s reputation. So if you haven’t done it yet, join Goodreads! Rate the books you’ve read. Give an honest review. Oh, and add me as a friend cause I can never have too many of those. 😉

I had to manually add Impending Reveries to their list, but it’s there now. Make sure to add it to your bookshelf.

I haven’t done a lot of exploring yet. Just set up the basics. So I want to ask you: how do you use Goodreads?
