Now I'm going to go through this thread and friend all of you over there. ;)

EDIT: Well, I would go add everyone, but it seems I've hit my daily limit of friend requests. :p

What exactly is Goodreads all about? I can see it's a book site but following a few links from this thread is a little confusing. What do you actually do there?

* Rate and review books you've read
* Keep track of the books you've read/are reading/want to read (given the length of my TBR list, this is the bit I find most useful)

That's the main stuff - there are discussion groups as well, but I've never gotten into them.

If you're an author, you can also see who's reading and reviewing your books - nice to know you actually have a readership when you're a newbie like me!

Goodreads is quite addictive.  It's handy for keeping track of what you're read, and what you intend to read...  Good for reviews too, though I tend not to get too involved with the discussion groups.

I'm on there as a normal human being and an author - my author link is http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/935639.Joanne_Hall.  Also, I'm doing a giveaway for one of my books on Goodreads in July, I'll post in the small press section when it's up and running (because there's no shame in being in the small press section, right?  I'm only 5ft 2 - that's small enough... ;) )

I've had two friend requests, yay! I guess I'll go back and riend whoever else came before and hope no lapsed members think I'm a random stalker.

I had the same thought when i went through the previous posts, so I added a message saying I was sending a friend request based on a post they had on fantasy faction. I just sent you a friend request to save you one... The number of users in this thread exceeds the number of requests you can send in one day

I got about 2 pages back and noted the dates, so stopped there. I'm not sure how much turnover this forum gets.
