Re: Book Communities Online - Goodreads, Shelfari etc

My target is 50 too. I managed to read 45 books last year and 44 the year before, so 50 might be reachable for me. I used to want to hit the 100 mark, but a) that started making me feel 'forced' to read, as a result of which I didn't really enjoy some of the books and b) work always gets in the way.

I'm looking forward to discovering excellent new authors and great books this year. Goodreads is so helpful in keeping track of what you're reading, what you've read and what you want to read. Plus, I love creating new shelves and picking the right shelves for books It's like my own private book database

"At the end of the first round, I will award three points to Mr. Kaine for an excellent nonspecific condemnation, plus one bonus point for blaming the previous government and another for successfully mutating the question to promote the party line. Mr. van de Poste gets a point for a firm rebuttal, but only two points for his condemnation, as he tried to inject an impartial and intelligent observation"
