Just a quick piece of internet book-keeping. I have had a Goodreads account since at least 2010, but literally never posted on it until last weekend when a friend added me out of the blue. That little bit of guilt-trip, combined with the fact that I’m probably going to be reading more electronic books prompted me to start using the site. I already keep track of my reading both with a spreadsheet and in an analog journal, but I am intrigued by the prospect of making reading a more social activity.
I will still be hosting review posts on this site, but anyone who wants to follow what I am reading beyond those should feel free to follow me there.
How long this experiment lasts will likely depend on how social Goodreads ends up being, though, so I might lapse out of updates in a few months.
One of my goals for this summer has been website maintenance. The rundown of where else to find me online can now be found on a static page here.

I got your connect request, but I’ve actually moved away from Goodreads recently, and to StoryGraph (https://www.thestorygraph.com/). It bases recommendations on more variables and has more granular reading goals, and more book review tools, but just as important, it’s a small company built and run by a person of color and not Amazon.
Thanks for the recommendation! I just set up a profile and am starting to poke around. It strikes me as less developed than Goodreads, but in a good way.
