I have a slight confession to make (I swear every post I write these days starts with a confession, maybe my blog should be called Confessions of a Bookthief!?), I am writing this post because I am procrastinating writing a project for Uni. It’s not too bad, I’ve written over half and planned the rest but I’ve just hit a wall, you know? so I thought I would come on her and share some news.
I recently set up a Goodreads.
Ok, maybe it’s not the most exciting news in the world but I’m pretty pleased to have done it. Towards the tail end of this year I started thinking about it more and more and then when I saw everyone’s yearly wrap up posts with precise numbers about the books you’ve read and things and I decided I wanted to keep better track for myself in 2018. I also think it will help me with picking the next book I want to read when the time comes around.
The only problem is, I’m not 100% how to use Goodreads efficiently. That might sound silly but I’ve never used it or a platform similar to it before. I’m sure I will get there in the end, stumbling through the dark (I mean let’s be real, that’s exactly what I did with this blog) but I wondered if you guys had any tips on how to make the most out of it? I will literally take anything you can give me! (Although, and I’m probably not making the most out of Goodreads here, I’m not going to be using the ‘want to read’ function because as I mentioned in a post earlier this year, I don’t enjoy having a TBR) Also, am I overcomplicating this whole Goodreads thing?
So there we have it, just a short post because my brain is mush at the moment, but I would love to hear your tips and to connect with you over on Goodreads (Here is the link to my profile, it’s not very exciting at the moment but hopefully it will be soon)!
As always, happy reading!
*If anyone is in the mood for giving tips, how do you cope you hitting a wall when you’re essay writing or doing academic work? Again, I will take anything and everything you have to offer!
