    Who uses goodreads to catalogue their reading?

    http://www.goodreads.com

    It's fantastic, to catalogue your own books, read and unread, you can have your own digital bookshelves and there are loads of reviews.

    I am also on this on Facebook

    I also use goodreads. Mostly to keep track of books I've read, but sometimes I'll put a book on the to-read shelf so that I'll remember it.

    I'm also on LibraryThing.

    When I signed up, I tried to remember all the book I ever read and add them. I don't think I managed, but there are still around 700. Anyone who wants to add me, my rl name is at the site credits

    I'm on goodreads.. and I have no idea of my name. I'm friends with a fair few Tower people, so it's easy to find me. I do need to start adding books though

    I'm on Goodreads and Librarything. Cataloguing features on Librarything are superior in my opinion so I try to keep all my books on there. Goodreads is mostly tied to the bookblog. Only a about a third of my books is on that site.

    I use goodreads to keep track of the books I read, as well as to read the reviews available of books I do not manage to read.

    I just added a bunch of you on goodreads. This is me, http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/710074-sasha, so please feel free to add me.

    I joined the site a long time ago, but I'm rarely active, so mostly I forget to update it. When I first joined I tried to remember all the books I read to enlist them, but that was impossible :lol
