Belle! I actually used to walk around and read because I wanted to be her...
One of my friends invited me to be her friend on Goodreads, and while I accepted, I never did anything with it. Basically it's a social networking tool for books, where you create a profile, add friends, create lists of books you'd like to read and then review them when you're done reading. Your friends see your activity and you see theirs. I have a whopping 3 friends, which gives you an idea of how active I am on this site, but I've been spending post-bedtime hours tonight compiling my list of 30 books to read this year and putting them on Goodreads. I'm not coming up with them all at once, but I do have about 11 that I currently want to read. I'm gonna keep it flexible.
I've listed several books that are now movies...most of them movies I haven't seen so this make for a really bad movie later on, but I feel like books get neglected after they're made into movies and they shouldn't be, so I'm looking forward to digging into my "movie books".
So what's book #1? Eat, Pray, Love (because it's 1 of 2 books that are actually available at my library). I watched the movie, and it was chock full of great quotes and and I'm looking forward to reading through them again.
I'll be using Goodreads to keep track of my reading progress this year. If you'd like to keep up with me, follow me here.
