I have finally given in to Goodreads. There were three main reasons I was avoiding it:
1. Yet another website to waste time on. I already read too many blogs, spend too much time on Pinterest and Facebook. Did I really need to waste time on Goodreads?
2. I was keeping track of what I read on a Facebook app that ended up shutting down. I didn't find out soon enough to export my data. I was a bit bitter about it and decided the best thing for me to do would be to keep track of my reading in a notebook.
3. I hate to rate things. I really like things, I like things, or I don't like things. The whole 5 stars rating system is too much for me.
But I gave in after all because I would like to know what my friends are reading and it seems like a good place to find new reads. I still hate to review books and rate them but will try.
Feel free to follow me if you would like. If you have any questions about a specific book I have read and/or are trying to figure out if you should read it, please don't hesitate to shoot me a message.
