On embarking upon this book blogging journey I thought oh I should really pay some more attention to Goodreads. And I have… minutely. But I’ve been pretty disappointed so far.
I’ve clicked on a few hundred books I’ve read. I’ve probably connected to all the people that I can. I’ve occasionally marked which book I’m reading. I might even have posted a review or two. But thus far it has added precisely nothing to my life bar a buzzing irritation that maybe I just don’t get this.
Presumably the idea is I see what my friends are reading so think oh maybe I’ll read it too? But I get that already on blogs that I read…
I’m not totally opposed to the idea (and in fact have just signed up to ivereadthat.com which seems to be, er, kind of the same) but wanted to know if I AM missing something? Guys? Anyone? What’s the point?
