    I’ve found that since actively using goodreads again in the last year/18 months I’ve become quite a competitive reader! Like, I feel that I challenge myself more because of the people who are friends with me are reading something and I really want to read it too. I’ve especially refound my love of classics because of Goodreads!

    As well as goodreads I do an annual spreadsheet and I take part in a reading ‘challenge’ with friends which has me quite active too (and actually got me in to page counting and the like!). I can’t stand writing in a journal/by hand because everything is then out of alphabetical order – sure it’s chronologically correct but it just frustrates me!

    Also, I’ve added you on goodreads 🙂

      It’s strange, isn’t it? There is a sense of competition and even more than that encouragement that comes with following what other people read. It’s neat to know we have similar tendencies. Thanks for connecting! I added you back 🙂

    I use Goodreads every day. I think there could be a ton of improvements to the site, especially its navigation, but I love the tool of it. If I couldn’t keep track of “want to read” there I would have no idea what to read next. As it is, I have a To Read list at nearly 600 and choose my next book by getting a friend to give me a page number, then a list number and just requesting that from the library. A surprise every time!
