I’ve always been a big fan of the site Goodreads.
Basically, Goodreads is a way to track the books you’ve read, find the reviews of your friends, and get book recommendations.
A lot of it is being part of a community of other readers which is cool. I often check out the books my friends review or mark ‘want to read.’
The biggest thing I use Goodreads for is tracking what I read.
The last few years I’ve set up a yearly reading goal at or around about 45-50 books, which ends up being a bit shy of a book a week.
Since I love hitting goals and playing around with gamification, it’s no wonder that I’ve really been into hitting this “ultimate goal” of the 50 books.
In fact this year, I decided to up it even more and started with 55 books. It was a tall order but doable.
But there was a problem.
