I use the website goodreads quite a lot. You can discuss books, find millions of options in your preferred genre, and save a book as "Want to read" or "has been read". I really like the website myself and have found a lot of fantastic reads from the site. I've come across an issue though. Underneath the synopsis of the book is a place where you can find the book to buy. I am not sure about the other options, but amazon sometimes will come back with a page that says the book was not found. GO TO the amazon website directly and search for the book anyway. 9/10 you can find the book on the website regardles. Just a helpful little tidbit for those who use the goodreads site alongside amazon as I do. Hope everyone is having a good day, I am trying to catch up here on the 'lot.

I signed up on the site a few years ago with a synopsis of my book, but couldn't load it to the site without paying for the service, so haven't used it since. I still get the e-mails which I ignore.

That does not seem very fair to the author's at all. I can understand the concept somewhat but I still think it's wrong that you were meant to pay. I wonder if that might have changed, I know amazon now owns it wherein before I don't believe they did.

@ScribbledAdNauseum I should check it out the next time I see one of their e-mails. I published through CreateSpace which is an Amazon company. It would be nice if I could get my books on there without having to pay a high fee for it.

I love to read. I have never heard of that site.

goodreads.com? It is now affiliated with Amazon. I don't remember when I first came across it, I think it was when I was searching for the title of a book I couldn't think of.
