Happy New Year!
It’s a new year and a fresh start on our reading goals, so let’s start by talking about one of the amazing tools available for readers of all shapes and sizes. This is especially helpful for those of us trying to increase our reading and establish reading goals during the first month of the year.
Goodreads (www.goodreads.com) is a website and app that will help you with tracking your reading, make reading recommendations, let you interact with your friends who read and talk to some of your favorite authors, to name a few. One of the features that the librarians here at BPL&T look forward to each year is the goodreads reading challenge which is a great way to challenge yourself to read more and meet or exceed your reading goals. Goodreads also is a fun way to discuss books with friends near and far, keep track of which books you’ve read, and find out what readers you know are recommending as well as follow your favorite authors so your are among the first to know when new books are coming out. A truly marvelous tool for people who read.
If you want to learn more, or have questions about setting up a goodreads account, the librarians here at BPL&T are more than happy to help. Just come up to the front desk and ask about setting up Goodreads.
