  1. Goodreads is AWESOME!!!!
    I’ve discovered books I never would’ve otherwise…not to mention my book loving friends that I can chat with about the same books we’ve read or that we’re thinking of reading. There are groups to join for your particular interests. I’ve even become buddies with a couple writers! In fact I’m reading a book (because it’s very interesting) that a writer asked me to read so that I would review it. Goodreads not only helped me expand my knowledge of what’s out there, but has encouraged to pursue a new hobby/passion in writing reviews.

  2. We love the comic 🙂 and your book account is most impressive, Jacqui. 👍🏻 I’m not registered with goodreads, but recently I started to list my huge private library in an bookshelf app and it’s connected with goodreads so I’ll look into it.
    Have a wonderful Sunday!
    Best regards,
    The fab Four of Cley

      • Dear Jacqui
        We use iBookshelves, but I need at least a year to get all our 📚 books in. I do it with scanning the ISBN but all the older books 📚 don’t have that code. I have to give in title, publisher, place on our shelves, rating etc. by hand 🤚 and photograph the cover. 150 books 📚 per day was my best until now.
        Have a happy week

    • It’s not easy to open. You have to click and then click again–maybe even again. Let me test that… OK, I’m back. It doesn’t seem to work. I did get it opening back when I posted it. Sigh. There are days I hate technology.


  4. Hi Jacqui – good for you for reading so many … I tend to dwell on my books as they are fairly involved: I’m not good at reading novels. But on your recommendation, I think, I bought the Peter Mathiessen “African Trilogy” .. I’ve yet to start it: I’m stuck with Fermor in Transylvania … cheers Hilary

    • Oh you will love to savor the Mathiessen books. They are gorgeous. I’ve only finished 6 books this year so far for the very reason you mentioned: I’m reading heavier books that take longer to consume.
