    I've been on Goodreads for quite some time. I love the place and it's free. I've checked other similar websites but they only have books in English and you cannot add books. On Goodreads in the other hand they also have books in other languages as well and you can add books too. Most of my book are in French so...

    I've recently started updating mine again and yes I'm free with my stars but when I get around to filling in a review I might drop some ratings by a star, not for all - just some.

    Never heard of Goodreads before, so I'm joining now to see what it is. Using Freyra as my name in there too.

    I use goodreads all the time. It's really helpful! (as long as I remember to update!)

    I just got a message asking me if I wanted to submit a question to a Mary Roach interview goodreads are doing. Unfortunately, I can't think of anything intelligent

    Because of the recommendations of Taika and Kallarn, I joined as well. My name is Nia and now I guess I will spend ages to add all the books I read and want to read :look

    edit: maybe I will just try to keep track of my readings from today on :lol

    This works best for me. I used to have a huge long list on google drive of books to read, and I transferred it all to Goodreads. And then when I'm killing time online or bored or just feel like it, I'll go through Goodreads and add books I've read in the past. ^^ There are still lots of books I've read that I'm missing, but it definitely has all my current reading and the books I've read for the past couple years!

    This is the one thing that annoys me about Goodreads - I want to go back and do the same! I'm missing plenty of books, but I have gone back and added all the series I can remember back through middle school. I didn't feel the need to add half of the Goosebumps collection though. ;)

    I spend an evening in front of my bookshelf adding most of the books that are in there. But of course there are still a lot of books missing, like those I don't own etc.
    Anyway, I think I will leave it like this and update from now on. At least I have enough books rated to get recommendations ;)
