Goodreads is a social networking site for readers to share their favorite titles, follow their favorite authors, and post their thoughts about the books they've read recently. It's a virtual version of the real life conversation that happens all the time, just like this:
Your friend says, "I just read this awesome book. You have to read it."
You answer: "What was it? I'd love to check it out!"
Goodreads says: "Our mission is to help people find and share books they love. Along the way, we plan to improve the process of reading and learning throughout the world."
Goodreads has more than 10,000,000 members who have added more than 380,000,000 books to their shelves. WOW!
