really liked it
bookshelves: litcrit

They said to me "Do you do Twitter?"

I said no, I have Goodreads.

They said "What about Facebook?"

I said no, I have Goodreads - this is funny, someone said it should be called Bookface.

They didn't get that.

They said "Do you have a blog?"

I said well, no, I do Goodreads.

They looked at each other, and then they said "We heard you don't even have a mobile phone."

I said yeah, you heard right.

They said "Don't tell us, you have Goodreads."

I said "Now you're making fun of me."

They said "Huh, we don't need to."

They said "This Goodreads, it's for like book reviews? Is that right?"

I said "Well... yes, but... it's kind of... more than that"

I wasn't convincing them.

They said "More than that? You mean you talk about music and movies and like real life?"

I said "Well, it is actually books we're talking about, but, er, life does come into it"

There was a silence.

Then they said they had to go.

Kris Paul, this sounds all too familiar:

"I said "Well, it is actually books we're talking about, but, er, life does come into it"

There was a silence.

Garima A friend of mine whom I suggested to use Goodreads complained that she didn't find a certain book, but I told her that she has already added it, I saw it on her update feed. She said Yes, but I can't read it there. And there was silence.

Katya Vinogradova This particular review proves that you don't even need to mention the books at all, lol.
