Goodreads

So I have been on Goodreads for a while and have started to rate books I've read and a list of books that I want to read. I tend to read for a month then try and remember what I've read and go rate them all so updates are a bit inconsistent from me but I love the site. I like that they have all the covers of the books and the new ones that are coming out soon and they even have author Q&A every now and then. There are groups you can join and chat together about the lovely books you have read. I am a part of one group and have been enjoying it so I think I'll branch out and try others.

My sister is a voracious reader and has been on Goodreads for a bit longer than me and is a part of numerous book groups on the site. She had a great idea, To make pages for each of my girls and record the books that they read throughout their growing up years. They can chart how many pages they read and turn it into school and how awesome would that be to have this list of the books you read as a kid and what you thought of it at the time. the girls could even write reviews! I think it's an awesome idea, I think I'll get started....

So how do you track your reading? Do you do something (different or the same) to track reading for your kids?

Ooh, I think that is a great idea to make pages for your kids to record what they read. I need to do that! My daughter is a voracious reader and she is always wanting to re-read books but then she can't remember the exact title, so this would be perfect for her! Thanks for the idea!

Oh, I just love Goodreads! There are so many things you can use it for. I love that I can now track all of the books I am reading. I hope your girls like it as well.
