“Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it’s a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it’s a way of making contact with someone else’s imagination after a day that’s all too real.” -Nora Ephron
I was on Twitter the other day (when am I not on Twitter?!) when I came across my friend’s tweet recommending a book she had just finished reading. Being the bookworm that I am, I clicked the link, my eyes widened and my jaw dropped! I had come upon a gem by the name of GoodReads.com.
Mind you, I know the websites for Borders, Barnes & Noble (once-upon-a-time I used to work at both places for the discounts) and Amazon.com exist. However, to come across an entire online community dedicated to books and amazing authors put a big smile on my face after a rough week of following the events in Egypt.
If you haven’t checked out GoodReads.com yet, please do! I’m slowly but surely adding all my books which you can view on my profile. Feel free to add me and share your favorite reads. I’m currently reading By The River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept by Paulo Coelho and so far I’m liking it. Anyone read it?
Do consider yourself warned that if you are a fan of books as I am, you will catch yourself browsing through this site for hours! Enjoy! =)
