There is a website geared towards readers gaining popularity by the day. The name of the website is http://www.goodreads.com.
Goodreads offers a gathering place for readers of every genre, age, and reading ability. It offers forums where fans can discuss whichever book they desire. You have the option of becoming a fan of your favorite author and access to their blog and announcements.
In addition, Goodreads allows you to add books you are currently reading, have read, or plan to read to your personal shelves. You can compare books with your friends and rate each book that you read using their star system. You can post your progress with your current book and set a yearly goal of how many you wish to read.
Activity on Goodreads can be linked directly to your Facebook and/or Twitter accounts. Goodreads also conducts giveaways by authors for current or advance reading copies of upcoming releases. These giveaways offer hundreds of books.
If you are a reader looking for a home on the internet, Goodreads is a perfect place to start.
