Social Networking for Readers

    Social Networking
    If you like to read and share your book recommendations with others,
    consider joining a social networking community for readers
    like GoodReads, Library Thing or Shelfari.

    The longer you network on these sites, the more you will discover within them.
    After setting up your profile, enter titles of books that you’ve read.

    If you are an author, you can also set up an author profile.
    From these sites, you may conduct online events like chats and giveaways.

    Each networking community also contains Groups that you can join which cater to a wide variety of genres and topics. You can even start your own Group.
    Remember how exciting it was the first time you got on the internet?
    That’s the way you’re going to feel when you start social networking
    with readers.

    1. I’ve been on GoodReads for a while now, but will admit that I don’t use it. Every once in a while I’ll add a book I’ve read. But it is a big community of people who like to read. I think if I used it more consistently, it’d be a good way to find books to read and a way to meet other people who like to read or authors. And if you’re an author, it seems like it would be a good way to introduce readers to your books.Helen Gingerhttp://straightfromhel.blogspot.com
