Wow this site looks decent. I've got the same problem as a few others though - I can't remember all the books i have read! In fact, with the exception of some of the big series that I have read (e.g. discworld), I can't remember many at all!

Oh well, every time I remember one I will add it to the list. I see what people mean about the "to-read" list growing. I can see that becoming dangerous! I have a much more modest goal of just 16 books to read, but I am hoping that this will help me stay motivated.

I'm on there as chrisdavis1083 (same as my twitter). I've added a load of you guys to help with recommendations and the like (although feel free to decline if you would prefer!  :'()

Thanks!!   It's not just my to-read list that's growing, but the books I've bought recently too, must have a backlog of about 8 now, so I'd better get reading!!!  ;D

I've added most of you on Goodreads now. Currently I use a simple bookshelf system to organize my books, for example non-fiction, fantasy, crime etc. However I also see others using a more elaborate system such as set in UK, cold or forbidding hero etc. What do you all prefer?

Might just be me but I find the whole user interface at Goodreads quiet poor :(.

Yeah it does lack the polish that some other social reading sites have. I guess they are trying to reach a critical mass and provide the required functionalities before fine-tuning the site.

What other sites do you have in mind, and how are they better then Goodreads?

Shelfari looks much better, I think that GR is a better book mgmt site. I love the Status Updates that GR has. If Shelfari had that, I would probably abandon GR.

Although, I have found that GR has better group discussions than Shelfari.

Before joining Goodreads, I looked at both Shelfari and aNobii and thought they have a more attractive layout and better interface design than Goodreads. However I settled with Goodreads because it offers a better community and interaction with authors.
