Welcome to the world of my latest obsession. I’ve been on Goodreads for a while, but you know how it is. You’re busy, can’t do everything. Goodreads kind of slid. But I’ve decided to cut myself some slack with Facebook — I really don’t like FB. If it weren’t for the lovely people there I wouldn’t bother with the annoyance of using it, and having it then trail me around the net unless I remember to log out and delete its cookies (or whatever the hell they are). Anyhow, this post was not meant to be a rant about FB. However, in the space left by me allowing myself to cut down on FB I think I’ll have time to spend on Goodreads. Yay!
Goodreads is lovely. What could be nicer than hanging out with other readers and chatting about books?
There are two main groups where you’ll find me on Goodreads:
Here Be Magic — run by fantasy (broadly defined) authors published with Carina Press. But we don’t limit ourselves to Carina books or to…um…serious discussion. Simply a fun, friendly place to call in. Also, we’re thinking of building a thread of book giveaway contests. We’ll see how that goes.
Australian Women Writers Challenge — the Goodreads companion site to the reading challenge I signed up for at the start of the year. Lots and lots of great book recommendations and reviews, plus clever, welcoming people. Nice group.
