I’m reading a NEW book

book

I love to read and wish I had more time to do so.  This weekend I started a NEW book that was recommended to me.  I love, loVE, LOVE recommended books from friends and family because there’s nothing worse than spending time reading a book you don’t enjoy…right?    What a waste of time!  Recommended books, at least, have a better chance of enjoyment than just random books.  I’m all for time efficiency!  I’m also loving Shelfari.com where I can keep track of the books I’ve read and also the books I want to read.  It’s a virtual bookshelf.  I once started a book that sounded quite familiar and I wondered aloud to my husband if we’d maybe seen a movie with the same plot as I was reading.  He mentioned he thought he’d seen me read that book before.  Oops!  He was right!  I had read the book before and had simply forgotten I had.  So now I also type a short summary into Shelfari to jog my memory of what the book was about, in case I have that problem in the future.    My shelfari page is strictly for my reference.  I don’t really have time to use it for any social media purposes, but I love having it available!  Some of my friends use GoodReads, and I’m sure there are other sites out there.  If you like to read and haven’t tried a similar site….try something NEW!  You’ll like it!  OR pick up a NEW book!….and be sure to let me know of any good recommendations!

  1. I love reading books other people recommend. My monthly book club votes on a book and we get together and discuss it. I’ve read some great books that I probably wouldn’t have read otherwise!

    • I feel the same about my book club! Do you have a list of books your club has read? I’d love to check it out and compare and/or find new possibilities! BTW…I really like your site! I’ll be visiting it often!
