    Kindle Update- Goodreads

    Advertisements
    I just grabbed my kindle and saw that it updated. It now has Goodreads and a few other things on it.

    I have seen a lot of you talk about Goodreads, and now that it's on my kindle, I'm excited to try it out.

    I have the Kindle Paperwhite, and I created an account on it. Now I have no idea what to do. Where do I start? Has anyone else seen how it looks on the Kindle?

    What do I do?!

    I freakin' love goodreads. Its like social media for readers and book lovers.
    You make an account and can then "friend" or "follow" people, read and write book reviews, make lists of books you want to read or have read, etc. It took a little bit for me to get in to it because I had to find people who's reviews I wanted to follow, but I just kept recording books I've read and eventually found people with similar tastes. Now I just scroll through my "newsfeed" to see the latest reviews of the people I follow which leads me to finding a ton of books I've never heard of.
    Here's my account if you want to check it out and see a little bit of how I use it: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/5549838-jenni

    Obviously I really like goodreads

    And let's not forget about the recommendations. Goodreads will recommend books based on books you've read, books you want to read, and different genres of books that you add. You can also ask the entire Goodreads community for recommendations based on something you've already read or on a topic you're interested in.

    I've found some books from Goodreads that I would have never heard about otherwise.
