    Default Goodreads, LibraryThing, etc

    Is anyone a member of Goodreads or LibraryThing?

    I've been on Goodreads for awhile now. I mostly use it to find books, get series lists, read reviews and keep track of books I've read. They allow you to add books and add tags to categorize your shelf. They also have some groups I'm part of for historical romances, etc. I prefer it to LibraryThing. I used to have my stuff on there, but switched.

    I've also found it helpful to discover to find books, if I don't know the author or title (or only part of the title). I'll just go into Google and search what I know with "goodreads" added to the phrase/title/etc I'm searching. Nearly everytime I'll turn up the book or series I'm looking for. (So example, I'd search - blood moon goodreads and see two possible books, one of which may be the one I'm looking for).

    I prefer goodreads as well. I think it is the most useful of these kinds of sites.

    I have been a member of LibraryThing for quite a while, very useful for followiing up series & other titles by an author - will give Goodreads a go.

    I use Shelfari also. Nice and easy to use and not likely to shut down suddenly like the last one I used did! grr

    I have used Shelfari, but my main one where I keep track of all of my books is on Goodreads.

    Goodreads! I joined last year but took me until the begining of this year to keep track of WHEN i was reading books (up to 240 books so far this year)
    I also use Hidden Content which is a good source for series and blurbs and Hidden Content surprisingly for paperback book COVERS! some of them are hard to find.. and some of the old books coming out in epub I prefer the original cover lol
