Just won a copy of Half A War on good reads. It was bound to happen as I have booked up to be in London next Thursday to get signed copies. 40 copies given away only 436 entries. So worth keeping an eye on their competitions page.

I love Goodreads! Feel free to add me: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/8177132.Megan_E_O_Keefe

Has anyone else been having fun playing with the "compare books" feature? It's neat to see what people have in common.

I have fun with the compare the book feature as well , I've just compared my books to you and it gives me 0%  ;D

Megan's books: 481 (400 not in common)
Books in common: 81 (13.09% of your library and 16.91% of her library)
My books: 619 (538 not in common)

And our tastes, Eclipse, are evidently 76% alike. I'm not surprised.

Yours are 80% similar to mine.  8)

We only have 24 books in common though, which is quite shocking considering we've got a combined total of 451 books there... and there are only five books that we've both rated  :o

I think you need to compare more then five to get a proper percentage like twenty plus  :) Theres a friend on my list with 93% but we both only rated four books.

Hah! That's hilarious. Could be because I don't usually leave starred reviews. Goodreads seems to be perpetually annoyed with me for that.   :P

My Goodreads account is buried in here somewhere, but I also know I changed my name/alias on there at some point and not sure if the url in here is correct. Feel free to add me, I love getting more people that read similar books.

Just a heads up, I do ask people to answer a question of why they want to be my friend there, you can mention FF.

I just joined last year, so my library is not as extensive as some of you.  :o

Well, I just checked my 2015 reading challenge. Got sidetracked a few months back. I am 12 books behind schedule!

So I'm 14 books behind on my 2015 reading challenge.

Been on a short story kick, but time is running out.
