I have been reading a lot lately and absolutely LOVE it! Oh how I have missed reading for fun due to the hectic school schedule. Although I am finishing up my Masters, I have found the time to read and have no regrets about late night "quiet time".

I wanted to share a website my friend shared with me.  It is called GoodReads and is amazing!  You can rate books you have read and it will generate recommendations based on your critique. There is also a section where you can give your honest opinion of the book and justify your rating.  For example, I really enjoyed Tim Tebow's "Through My Eyes", however, I am not a huge football fan so I noted there were some sections that were "dry" to me.  That is nothing against Mr. Tebows book, because obviously it was written by a football player.  What did I expect?  I therefore kept my rating 5/5 because it was inspirational.

If I still haven't convinced you of the benefits of GoodReads,  I hope the single fact that it serves as a way to catalog what you have read this year will justify it's worthiness.

Happy Reading!

I LOVED Tebow's book too! I agree, there were some dry spells for those of us that really don't follow football too closely, but I got a lot out of it, especially some good thoughts on raising my boys. His parents seem pretty good at that! Anyway, I'm checking this site out now because of you. Thanks!
