  • Goodreads begins with your personal reading profile. PUBLIC FACE. This is the heart of the site—your favortie books, authors, and your friends. Here users create bookshelves for their reading, tagged with own tags. (craft-lit, tried it did not finish, back to library/in progress)
  • What have you been reading? This can go back as far as you like. What did you think of that book? Have you already read it—or forgot that you read it?
  • Virtual reading list…in a place where we CAN remember what book it was, what was that title…
  • Browse your friends shelves….hey, what did you think about this?What are your friends reading—can you have a discussion about something…or get an idea of what to read next.Also find friends though email, FB
