"An Unofficial Guide to Goodreads for Readers and Writers"

By downloading this free guide, you agree to receive regular updates on the latest cool apps, product reviews, and giveaways from MakeUseOf.

While reading your eBook you can easily share quotes and passages to your friends or add favorite quotes to your  Goodreads profile.  In 2013 I read 51 books. That added up to 11,668 pages. Dedicated readers may scoff at that number, but that’s the most I have ever read in a year. The number wasn’t hit because of any New-Year-Eve self-improvement guilt, or anything like that. I just sort of fell into it.

On one hand, I moved far away from my job and spent a lot of time commuting on the subway. On the other hand, my smart phone could have easily taken over my entire life. Yes, I love reading, but I also love Arrested Development marathons, so it could have really gone either way. However, my numbers show that I am reading more, and I think that’s because of Goodreads and social networking about books. Introverts, I can hear you growling, swearing to never use Goodreads. But hey, hear me out:

1. Goodreads has both social and asocial tools! You can use Goodreads every day and never have to talk to anyone

2. The social-interaction is akin to ‘Bring a Book to School’ day. It is two readers next to each other, purring in rhythm.

My addiction to Goodreads is also professional. I am digital marketer who works in traditional publishing, and I am also a writer. And though I am not self-published (yet?), I have two words for those who are: Goodreads STAT.

So basically, I really like Goodreads. I use it for business and pleasure and this guide will talk about both of these perspectives.
