So I started hanging out at Goodreads. Originally it was to promote my ebook Not the New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes but then I just began hanging around to get recommendations on new books to read. I found out that I could write short book reviews which may help other book lovers (or at least just give them a laugh.) Some days I'd be there for hours. I began to suspect that i was spending way too much time on Goodreads. I even wrote a blog post about it.
Well, now it's official. I DO spend way too much time at Goodreads. Yesterday, I received this email from Goodreads itself:
