We ask that each member shelve at least 2 exceptional books that they've read but may shelve as many as they want.
I spend a lot of time trying to find those EXCEPTIONAL books and have to wade through many poorly written books to find them. If you have this same problem then join our group and add to our group bookshelf ONLY the books you believe are EXCEPTIONAL.
This group can encompass any genre of book, fiction or non fiction. As long as you believe that it is a book someone MUST read before they die.
This group is not about getting a lot of members, it's about getting a lot of great books shelved on our bookshelf. That way when your feeling in a reading slump, you can come to this group and find an exceptional book listed on our bookshelf that you know will be written well and have a great story line to it.
If you put a book on our bookshelf, please create a shelf for it so other people can easily pick out a book from the particular genre they like.
Note to author's: You are all more than welcome to join our group but please do not shelve your own books. You probably wrote a great book but let others say its great. Please only shelve the books (other than yours) that you think are exceptional books. ...more

Oprah, like Goodreads, has created an amazing community of readers out of an activity that is very solitary. From shmaltz and sentiment, fabricated memoirs to Faulkner's, As I Lay Dying, come here to share the good, the bad and the ugly from her book club list, or from books she has mentioned in passing--a little bit of bling might be fun, too. Let's keep it clean....more
