A Great Site For Bookworms

This is a really cool website. I found it via Facebook and just joined to check it out. It's the perfect place for bookworms to show off their love of books; you can review titles you've read, mark ones you want to read, and rate them. There's even a forum where you can discuss certain novels. As far as content goes, this site is probably not best for anyone under 13. It seems that you can check out any book, and of course you can get into inappropriate titles. A good thing to keep in mind is that people on Facebook and Twitter can join; that means you should probably be at least 13 before getting onto the website

Good is Goodreads?

Goodreads is okay. People can interact with one another while having fun. You can role play, play games, rate books, check on your favorite authors, create your own group and send messages to both friends and authors. Goodreads gives you a chance to make your own groups. While it is fun to have our own groups, it is also unfun. You have to deal with people who aren't active even though they joined your group. For the most part Goodreads is an okay website for teens and adults. There is a little language and explicit contents.

Fantastic!

I think that Goodreads is a great site for any age over 10 to review books, join book clubs, and it just is a great site overall!
