I know it’s not regular blog day, but I wanted to share some news. I will be doing my regular blog on schedule though on Monday. I have something planned that I hope will be thought provoking. Anywho, on to my news.
I’ve clearly had my nose in a book for far too long, because I’ve heard of this whole “Goodreads” thing, but I’ve never actually spent much time checking it out. Full confession: I’m very lazy about technology. Since I have a BS in Information Technology, that’s probably not a good thing, but that’s a whole ‘nother story. 😉
I’m trying to be more active on social media, because I am by nature an introverted person who would gladly be a hermit if the world would only let me. Sadly, the world is not so inclined, so I’m pushing myself out of my comfort zone. I’ve challenged myself to get out there with this blog and Facebook and now Goodreads. Much to my surprise, I discovered that Goodreads was made for compulsive readers just like myself. Hurray!
I read hundreds of books each year, and I can now sort them, rate them, and even make my own bookshelves to categorize them. I feel like I’ve just stepped into the future (that everyone else already discovered years ago. 😉 ) I also claimed my author’s page, which is pretty cool. I’m having fun playing around with the settings and features on that, so I hope you’ll check it out. It’s interesting that I’m so willing to explore this particular platform when I’ve been ambivalent about other social platforms, but I think it’s because it deals with something I love…books!
Anyway, I just wanted to share that I’m now on Goodreads with my own author’s page. I’m pretty stoked about it!
