The five best books to read
When you are looking for something new and interesting, there are many ways to turn around. We' re looking at five of the best book recommendations pages, service or groups this weekend, depending on your nominees. At the beginning of the month, we asked you where you went to find something good to look at - whether it was due to the things you've already been reading, to the ideas of someone you trusted, on a website where you can create a sort of a" shelf" of your favourite songs, or simply on a group.
What is the best book referral service? While GoodReads is more than just a book reference page, it helps you find new titles you like to have. They can create a digital "shelf" of textbooks you own or have already studied, sharing your advances with the textbooks you are currently studying, evaluating them, leaving reviews and sharing with other people.
They can also use these reviews to get book proposals from the site's extensive bookbase. You can have your friend give you instant feedback, and even if the book proposals the page creates aren't enough, you can immerse yourself in user-generated book listings, reviews, and more. A great thing many of you have been mentioning about GoodReads is that you can join your Amazon accounts to quickly set up your online store.
When you exit the book on your Kindle, GoodReads marks the book automaticly as completed and updates your recommendations accordingly. It is also difficult to underestimate the powers of the GoodReads fellowship, which many of you have also cited. Several of you have noticed that your favourite writers also take active advantage of the site and are sharing what they read.
