Find Me On Good Reads!

harrogate-blogger

A website for reading. Reading books. Not reading the code or the text on the site. A website about literature; Good Reads, that’s its name.

Admittedly, it is aimed for Kindle readers - but, there are heaps normal books being rated there. And, indeed, that is what the site does.

Good Reads is the website - it intelligence signals. It allows you tell the people who follow you how intelligent you are by listing all of the books you have devoured / let gather dust / are currently reading.

I doubt I will use it much.

It is a good way of keeping up with literary recommendations, trends and topics. But, you can do that over a pint and have a lot more fun - it may be a digital intrusion too far?

It is a bit of a competition amongst some people… however, I am keen to hear your point of view so leave a comment in the footer of this blog post; I will try and get back to you.

But, it does seem to be the opposite of Book Culture; standing on a pedestal and boasting. I do not promote boasting and I am not representative of book culture’ (trad-lit or digital tomes).

Each to their own - but on Good Reads, I just listed the three books I have on my bedside table and I am unsure if I will be back in there anytime soon. Pity, it seems a good tool to encourage reading - however, it is almost competitive reading. A sport.

If you would like to hunt me down on Good Reads head HERE and if you want to chip in to the conversation, leave a comment in the footer.
