I love to read.
So much that I practically inhale books at times. I can easily read a book or two in a day, if I have the time.
When I then discovered Goodreads I was thrilled. It took me a little while to get used to the navigation of the site, but I was quickly able to start adding books to my "shelves". I love how easy it is for me to now search for new books, especially based off of ones I've already read and enjoyed.
But by far one of my favourite parts of the Goodreads site is their giveaways. Authors and publishers use this to help promote their new books, but the best part is that it translates into FREE BOOKS for Goodreads users. I've entered quite a few, and in less than a year I've won three books. It's so simple to do- if you have a Goodreads account all you have to do is select which ones you would like to enter on the Goodreads Giveaway page. Then later on if you win, you'll receive an e-mail from Goodreads.
One thing to note is that Goodreads does not mail out the books, the publisher or author is responsible for this. It does take a few weeks to have them shipped, but I haven't had any issues with it.
