Hanging out on the Goodreads To-Read List

I'm a member of the Goodreads social network where you can keep track of the books you read, review them, join groups to discuss books of different genres, and get recommendations of great reads from friends you make there. I really enjoy the community and have gotten some wonderful reading recommendations as a result.

I'm also happy to report that many Goodreads members have read my first book, A Real Basket Case, and enjoyed it. Its average rating is currently 3.8 out of 5. It's also hanging out on a number of members' to-read lists, 120 at last count. I recently looked at the all the books that also were sitting on 120 members' to-read lists and decided that A Real Basket Case was in some good company, including:

Last Scene Alive by Charlaine Harris
Red Lily by Nora Roberts
Exile by Richard North Patterson
Foul Play by Janet Evanovich
Thanks You, Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse

If you're a book lover and aren't a member of Goodreads yet, you should be! If you join, be sure to befriend me there. And, please put A Real Basket Case on your to-read list, or if you've already read it, please add your review to the site.

I'm fairly new over at GoodReads but I think it's awesome!

I've heard good things about GoodReads. I need to spend some time checking it out more thoroughly. Also, love the cover of To Hell in a Handbasket. Congratualtions.

Where is the link to your profile, Beth? I LOVE Goodreads mostly for the to-read list. It's hard to keep it down to a managable size!

I joined Goodreads a few months back but haven't done much with it. Guess it's time to spend some time over there.

I belong to BookReads, but have spent so much time blogging I haven't had a chance to network there as much.
