I haven’t posted about it in a while, but dang, I heart Goodreads. Love that it’s free, love seeing what my friends are reading, love following authors, love taking the quizzes, love cataloging all my books and rating them. If you’re a member of Goodreads, hit me up! I want to see what you are reading!

Also, considering a foray into PaperBackSwap. I am afraid i will be addicted. Also find that maybe the input of the ISBN numbers might be a little cumbersome. Wish they would somehow integrate with Goodreads. . . .

In other book news, I’m getting ready to start reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society for my book club. Very excited. Looks great, despite the stupid title.

    I do Paperback Swap and I like it a lot. However, they never have new popular titles, and that’s kind of annoying.

    I liked Guernsey, etc….I suggest you read The Book Thief for your book club. Damn, that was a good book – definitely the best I’ve read this year.

    I’ll check out Goodreads.

    You know that Goodreads has their own book swap program, right?

    Love paper back swap so far. Easy. Entered my 10 books to get 2 credits and requested books that came real quick. Have received 3 requests… 2 were our book club books! And 1 baby book. I buy the postage on their site so you get your credit for sending instantly.

    Im so behind on everything so no issues finding books to choose from.

    Oh, heck, Lyle! I had no idea. Have to go check it out. . . Have you used it?

    Nikki, The Book Thief is on my list.

    Now I might have to try the Goodreads bookswap, first.

    Will report back!

    I have sent off five books now, but have not yet requested any of the books on my wishlist. I’m so far behind on reading books I already own that I don’t really need to acquire any more at the moment. 😉

    i just signed in with bookswap, but no books I want are available– and they’re not all new/super popular. I have this sinking feeling I am going to send a ton of books out and get nothing back. Anybody had luck finding books there?

    Lyle, I’m the same. Big pile lying around that I am afraid I will never get to.

    Katharine, you never know. Did you try the Goodreads swap? Maybe there will be other stuff there, too.
