She Who Must Not Be Named Be Named I believe this is enabling me. I keep buying books that I might not get to in at least 2 years.

It is the dilemma of all book lovers. =)

SAAAAAAME.

Christiane This site is owned by amazon /Bezos. It's for commerce and sale, not for readers. So: You are a good member of this community ;-)


message 5: by Julia (new)

Julia Santo other than this site, what site would you recommend for booklovers?

Yes!! But this is a good problem to have! :)

Judy No problem, get them (or order them) from your community library. I like this site for reviews, keeping up with favorite authors and keeping track of books I've read.


message 8: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Palumbo Yes, I agree. I get all my books from the library. You can also download them from the library. Its saving me a lot of money as there are very few books that I read twice and only if I really love a book do I then go out and buy it. Another cheaper way to get books is to use kindle app.

Aleksander Eide I am 2 hours into do no harm on audible and love it so far :)

Agree! Your library is your book budget's best friend.

Only two? :D


message 12: by Lynne (new)

Lynne Dodd I really like and enjoy this site. It has enabled me to be in the know
regarding new novels from my favourite authors and also helps
introduce me to many new authors. I borrow all my books from the library so it is of no importance to me who owns the site. I am sure there are many like minded people. Also, if I do buy a book when
I am finished with it I either donate it to our street library or our local library.


message 13: by Lorilee (new)

Lorilee Thunderbolt and Sparrow a brand new book and a brand new author just trying to get his foot in the door. A time travelling adventure series.Team Thunderbolt unites and begins their quest to dismantle the extraterrestrial war machine. A must read for the entire family.

I recently saw a meme that said reading books and buying books are completely different hobbies. They are right.

TMR Intriguing list.

The Story Graph. I'm making the transition, and it's a kickass site run by women.

I was about to respond the same thing. I still use Goodreads because I feel it enables the community spirit a lot more; while with The Story Graph, it is more about the individual, and although you can see others' reviews, it isn't quite the same. But I found that with The Story Graph, the recommendations are a lot more accurate and specific, and the books they recommended were books I had NEVER heard of, but somehow ticked all the boxes and fitted perfectly within what I felt like reading at the time. Honestly can't recommend it enough - but again: use it for the personalised recommendations rather than the followers and the community.

fantastic fiction is quite good if you like to see what some of your favourite authors are reading/would recommend etc and also finding similar authors/books in the same genre

Same here! I keep buying them, and now I probably have around 20 books just waiting for me!
