I have been a member of the Goodreads site for a couple of years now. This is a little like Facebook for readers. I use this as a means of monitoring my reading and keeping a record of what I have read. I really like the yearly challenges where you challenge yourself to read a certain number of books in the current year. The site is also a good to connect with people that have similar reading interests. Getting recommendations from other members or just ideas from what they are currently reading  is also a nice way to vary your reading habits, and get other people’s views of the books that you enjoy.

I would heartily recommend this site to anyone interested in either reading or writing, since this is also a good forum for getting your work read.
