FINE. I did it. You all talked me into it. It doesn’t take much, we all know, for me to join an internet trend. Usually I jump on before it’s even a trend so I can be an Internet Hipster like that. But since I just really picked up my reading habits after getting a Kindle, I put off the Good Reads thing. Until now. I doubt I’ll put a huge effort into logging in ALL the books I’ve read onto there, but when one pops up on some else’s list that I’ve read, I add it. I did try to remember all the books I’ve read this year so I can try to read 100 in 2011, but I’m not sure I’ll make it. I’ve been reading a lot but I’ve hit some lulls since I couldn’t think of what to read next. But you know the best thing about Good Reads? LISTOPIA! There are some GREAT book lists on there and between that and the book list E gave me for the summer (seen here), I won’t have to stop reading for awhile!
Also – I’ve started two new/old series. THIS IS THE WAY TO GO. If you start a new series, you have to wait. I’ve been reading Morganville Vampires (lighthearted and easy to read, but more on the side of “young” in YA than I usually can tolerate) and I am now reading Gone which is part of an older series too. So, as I feel like it, I can pick up books in THOSE series too since they’re ALREADY OUT. Gotta love that. Way better than counting down the calendar for 12 months.
ANYWAY…you should totally join now, if you aren’t one of the people who talked me into it. I’m kinda addicted to see what everyone is readin/has read. And I’m trying my best not to take it personally when people totally trash books I love.
P.S. The photo above is my Avatar on Good Reads. Shirts are from my favorite HP store on Etsy: Evie Tees. Check out her stuff!
P.P.S I don’t have to point out that I’m not being paid to tell you to buy her stuff, do I? Since I never get paid to tell you to do anything on this blog? Everyone gets very serious about that type of stuff but I’d like to think it’s obvious around here that when I tell you to do something it’s because I LOVE IT and not because someone paid me to say it, right? Well…just in case…NO ONE PAID ME TO SAY THAT. There. Now. Go buy something from her before she goes on vacation June 14th.
