I LOVE this button...maybe just a little bit too much.
I am a New goodreads Addict
I have only recently really gotten into my goodreads account. I started one years ago, but I never used it much except to get book recommendations. Since I started blogging I have started using the account more, daily actually. I am keeping track of how many books I am reading this year (so far 7/100, 1 book ahead of schedule!), I post my reviews on the site, and I now enter giveaways (I've only won one book so far, but I'm determined to win a few more). I also never really did a lot with my to-be-read shelf... until I discovered THE + Add to goodreads BUTTON. I'm calling it a button. I don't know if that is the correct term.
Why I Love The Button
I love reading reviews, I find so many new books that I want to check out, and some of course that I care to forget. One day, while browsing through my list of book blogs that I love, I noticed a few that had the "Add To goodreads" button. When I realized that this button will automatically take me to goodreads so I can add a book to my to-read shelf I got really really excited. I can't tell you how many times I've read a review and thought to myself...hmmm I need to write this down or remember to add it to my TBR list later, and then promptly forgot.
This button opened up a whole new world of awesomness to me. Who knew that one button could change my life? Okay, I may be over exaggerating but I really don't care. This has made my life so much easier, except for one small thing...my TBR pile is growing at an alarming rate. I can only read so fast and this is a problem. But for right now I have decided that I'm just going to enjoy my use of this button. (At least I only add books that I would really like to read, I haven't gone all clicking happy yet.)
I Will Now be Using The Button
By the way, all my reviews will now have this button on it. I'm just trying to help you other goodreads "to-read" shelf addicts out there. It took me a while to figure out how to do it, but I think I got it all worked out. It's really a picture with a link. (Who knew it would be so hard to add one button on your blog, maybe because it is the best button ever!)
Your Opinion on The Button
What do you guys think of this button? Do you use it a lot? Have you even really paid attention to it? I want to know your thoughts. I really hope I'm not the only one addicited to The Button, or goodreads in general.
I'm done rambling about The Button now. I promise.
