|Their logo is pretty sweet!|
But here's a post on why I think Goodreads is awesome! Not as awesome as you, but pretty awesome! Here are some reasons why! (Ya know, I tried to come up with 10, but I couldn't so I stuck with the number of completion: 7)

It's so 90s it hurts!

2. Social - It's like reading with friends! Like a book club! But you all don't have to read the same book! And if you get really excited and start flailing because someone is reading your favorite book or gave it five stars, you can like their status update! (Or give a really fangirly comment) Or if someone didn't like your favorite book, you can write a politely passive aggressive comment! (Apparently "aggressive" has two g's)
And you guys are on Goodreads! You see, Instagram is for my friends that I've met in 3D (if that makes sense) and a few blogger friends! Twitter is to get information and to laugh. And Goodreads is to connect with you, my blogger friends. Until I started blogging, I had little use for Goodreads. None of my church/school friends like to read that much, but then I met all of you wonderful people on there, and BAM a whole new network of people I love and trust. (Like a friend love obviously, and yes, I trust you guys for recommendations!)
3. Books - Ummmm it's a social network about books!! That automatically makes it amazing! amirite? (I just had to throw in that word) Not just classics or contemporary books, but all books!!! Yay!!!
4. Reviews - I may not write many reviews on Goodreads (at least promptly), but I lov reading them. Whether they're from you guys or from complete strangers! (For books that you all haven't read or reviewed) It's cool to see different people's opinions! It's also a great way to
|My Goodreads shelves be like|
|I haven't read any of his books, nor do I agree with everything he says/does|
BUT he is pretty awesome!
7. Ratings - These are kind of like reviews, but bite-sized. I also use them. For example, I was at the library and wanted to see what my friends thought of a book. Only Lois had read it, and though she didn't review it she rated it five stars! I like most of the same books as Lois, so it was an automatic pick-up!
So there you have it! My seven reasons the Goodreads is amazing and I hope all my friends get one!! DFTBA!
