So I finally feel settled enough in my new apartment to spend a little leisure time online and I decided to really take a look at this website. A friend of mine invited me to sign up on because she knows how much I like to read but I've been so busy moving and everything that I haven't really figured out what it's all about until now.

I have to say that I like this site a lot and can see myself wasting a lot of time browsing. After you create an account you can add books to your 'shelves' like ones that you've already read and some that you want to read in the future. I started going in and finding some of the books I've had on my 'to be read' list and I was pleased to find that they list member reviews/comments about the books as well as summaries of plot. This is really helpful for me because I have had to put down a couple of books in the last few months that I didn't want to finish. Now I have more opinions and reviews to look at before I even pick a book up so maybe I won't put so many down unfinished.

One that I'm really looking forward to is Elantris by Brandon Sanderson. It's been on my list for a while and everyone gave it good reviews. Mostly, I'm just happy that I will have time to read again now that I'm moved and nearly settled.

So go sign up with and let me know what you think!
