I have now recorded my
1000th book on goodreads.com.
I still have more to add, but this is a milestone.

I have always recorded the books that I have read in an Excel spreadsheet. I read so many books that I do not always remember what I have read and not have read. I also read a lot of series books. When there is a year between books published, I like to refresh my memory before I start the newest book. I recently lost my spreadsheet and it dawned on me that I was keeping two sets of records....one on goodreads and one in Excel...a duplication of efforts that was unnecessary. I gave up the spreadsheet even though I recovered it later.
If you read a lot and need to keep track of the books you read, goodreads is for you. How many times have you started to read a book only to find after a few pages that you have read it but don't remember the end so you read it again? goodreads gives you a short synopsis to remind you of the plot. Then, you can add your own notes and review to that book. I also like the ability to connect to my reading friends and keeping a list of my favorite quotes.
I am happy that I found goodreads **!!!
**I promise they are not paying me :)
