Loving Goodreads!

June 19, 2008

I am loving the website www.goodreads.com for keeping track of books I have read, want to read and am currently reading!  It’s great for seeing what your friends and others are reading and what they have rated the books they’ve read.

I have discovered reading again lately.  After taking quite a bit of time off of reading seriously it’s good to finally get back to reading some books I have totally enjoyed and immersed myself in.  I find myself lately reading more than one book at a time.  I think it’s because I just have to read what I’m in the mood for.  Sometimes it’s a fantasy novel (my favorite) and sometimes a self help book or spiritual book.  I have to have something different for the mood.  Along with the books I have a serious magazine addition.  It’s really bad!  My husband has to steer me away from the magazine racks whenever we go into a store.  Mostly I read home decorating and scrapbooking magazines.  Then we won’t even get into all the other stuff I read:  newspapers, blogs, stuff for work, gardening website, and tons of email newsletters.  Wow!  I never realized how much reading I get done until I listed it all.
