Happy Birthday Goodreads

post by Michelle Griep
Go ahead. Eat a slab of cake today in honor of Goodreads 9th birthday. I've been on there for 7 of those years. Yikes. That's a long time. But I'm certainly not the only one who's been writing reviews for years on end. Goodreads now has more than 50 million reviews. And here are a few more fun facts . . .

First book reviewed on Goodreads:
A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson

Most reviewed book: 
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Star rating that's used the most often:
5 stars

Highest rated book:
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

The thing I appreciate most about Goodreads is that reviews tend to be a bit more gritty and real. It's less of a fan club trying to sell books like on Amazon.

If you haven't yet moseyed over to Goodreads, jump on in. The water is fine. You can find me and my reviews HERE.

I mosey over there now and then to review books I've read. One problem I've had is that I began reading a couple to books and never finished them....and I can't seem to figure out how to remove them from my "reading now" list.
