Have you just finished a good book that you'd like to tell your friends about? Then Goodreads.com is the website for you. Founded in 2006, Goodreads is a yet another social networking site except this one is built on the premise that friends enjoy sharing their reading interests with each other. As the website explains:
"Most book recommendation websites work by listing random people’s reviews. On Goodreads, when a person adds a book to the site, all their friends can see what they thought of it. It’s common sense. People are more likely to get excited about a book their friend recommends than a suggestion from a stranger."
Perhaps the Legal Writing Institute should start a group here so that Legal Writing Professors can share their reading interests, both vocational and avocational, with one another.
I am the scholarship dude.
