Goodreads is a world’s largest site for book readers and recommendations. As of December 2011, Goodreads has more than 6,700,000 members who have added more than 230,000,000 books to their shelves. A home for casual readers and bona-fide bookworms alike, Goodreads users recommend books, compare what they are reading, keep track of what they’ve read and would like to read, find their next favorite book, form book clubs and much more. Goodreads was launched in January 2007.
The site has standard social networking features, with users having the ability to edit their publicly viewable profiles, add and meet friends, and interact with each other through messages and comments. The site differs in that it revolves around users’ “Bookshelves”, a list of books they have read or are reading currently. Users can browse others’ bookshelves, and see their full reviews.
