Big Grin I have no friends on goodreads.com

This post was last modified: 24 Apr 2011 08:56 PM by johnwin.
I've just started using goodreads.com and would really appreciate a few friends there to encourage me to read more than I currently do. Reading Kindle

I presume that a fair proportion of the users here do use it so this is a shout out to everyone for us to form a KUF group.

Of course apologies if this is already in place and I've just not found it (I am new you know) Angel

You can find me here:

I use Goodreads, but I have mainly used it as a way of logging which books I've read or plan to read. I'm not really very active on there, but I've sent you a friend request.

Thanks Phil, I see you are a fellow mac user too (judging by your goodreads avatar)

If you are on Facebook you can link it up to your Facebook account and might find that some of your friends are on there. I don't tend to use Goodreads, I did sign up but just kind of didn't do anything else about it.

Thanks for the tip Leelee. I have a pathological hatred of facebook but I did see that goodreads has the ability to add friends from twitter and so picked up a few from there.

Thanks again though because your comment set me off on the right track. Clapping hands

Hi John,
I sent a friend request - I love Goodreads although I never seem to have enough time to spend there... too busy working on my books Wink

Cheers,

Haven't used Goodreads myself, but I'll look into setting up an official KUF group on there if you like.

Been so tied up with KUF that I haven't fully explored what everyone else is doing.

Lou,

I think that a KUF group would be really useful. Do others agree?
