Do any bees use the site Goodreads?
It’s a site that keeps track of the books you read or are currently reading.
I would like to have friends on there so I can get some suggestions about what to read.
Any bibliophiles out there?

I’m not a member of that site, but I LOVE to read. 🙂 If you have a Kindle, you should check out http://www.pixelofink.com. They post free books everyday. I’ve gotten some really great books from there.

I love books! I am on Goodreads but only through my Facebook I’m afraid.
What kind of books do you like? (Can maybe still suggest some)

I’ve never heard of it – may have to check it out! I’m definitely a book-lover!
@BoiledPNut: Thanks for the tip – my friend just gave me his old Kindle and I’m still figuring it out.

@BoiledPNut: Thanks for the link. I’ll check them out. I have a nook but I can use a convertor if the book is in a Kindle only format.
Scottish_lassie I am so antifacebook. I have one but I never really liked it and I never post on it. How I wish Myspace was still the site most people used, lol. Whenever I join a site I alwasy refuse to connect it to facebook because I don’t like the idea of Facebook having all this info about me. It kind of freaks me out and think about Big Brother.
So books I enjoy:
My favorite book of all time is Season of the Witch by James Leo Herlihy.
I also love Song of Ice and Fire series, The Avalon series, anything by Haruki Murakami, CHristopher Rice books, Caleb Carr books, As well as Chick lit once in a while like Sophie Kinsella.
I’m willing to give anything a shot. I just finished re-reading the Hunger Games Trilogy. What a good series!
Books I dislike:
Twilight series, Candace Bushnell books (at least the two I read, I love the show Sex and the City but never read the book), Cell by Stephen King, I think taht’s it.

@Otaqueen: I just started reading the Songs of Ice and Fire series and I’m seriously hooked. I became addicted to the HBO series and just had to read the books.
Have you ever read the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind? They’re decent, though I admit soe of the books in the series are much better than others.
I also highly recommend The Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. It has a great combo of witches/vampires/demons and biblio history. Though I warn you, if you’re a series reader and need to know how things turn out the 2nd book isn’t due until July 2012. 🙁
Caleb Carr is amazing, btw. I took an Alienist walking tour through Lower Manhattan over the summer and was so psyched, some of the buildings and areas he describes in the story are still there!
Oh and if you like historical fiction the Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett is a good read. Long, but totally worth it.
