I just recently discovered this excellent resource for readers as part of my ‘technology education’ related to the launch of Three Weeks Less a Day. You might like to check out Goodreads yourself with this link:
You’ll need to sign-up to get all the benefits but it’s very quick, and there is no cost to register. One of the nice attributes of the site is a link to social media platforms so you can let your friends know about books you’re reading or have read. You can also receive updates on your friends’ reading.
The best feature: You and your friends can rate and do reviews to share information about books you enjoy and avoid books that might not suit your tastes. It’s a great tool to be sure you’re buying books that you’re most likely to enjoy when you spend your hard-earned money!
You’ll find lots of other benefits. Based on your interests, Goodreads can make recommendations for books you might like to explore. There are book giveaway programs. You might like to keep up with new releases of your favorite authors. Or, perhaps read news about or interviews with writers. You can also join discussion groups and ask questions to authors directly.
If you decide to sign-up, please also take a moment to visit the page for Three Weeks Less a Day. It would be great if you can leave a rating and review if you’ve read my novel. Let people know it’s a book you’d like to read if you haven’t ordered yet. Or, start a dialog with me by asking some questions!
One last incentive to explore Goodreads: Between October 31 and November 10, you can enter a contest to win one of 10 free paperback copies of Three Weeks Less a Day! See the Goodreads site next week for details. I predict you’re going to become a Goodreads fan!
Dictionaries might define the word ‘rendezvous’ as a meeting with someone that is arranged for a particular time and place (and that is often secret); or a place where people agree to meet at a particular time; or perhaps a place where many people go to spend time. Here, Rendezvous is a place where we can share information and get to know each other better.
