Goodreads and I Joined a Book Club!

goodreadsI’ve joined a book club…. yep and I am going to actually read them all too! I don’t know if you have checked out Goodreads before but it is the best book and reading site on the web, at least according to my opinion. Their mobile apps are pretty awesome as well.

I have never joined a book club before but have always wanted to try it out. I have joined the book club “50 Books to Read Before You Die”….. 50 books….. that’s a whole lot. I have already read The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter series, The Bible (most of it), and The Count of Monte Cristo, I may reread those ones as well still trying to decide. Books really are a great escape from reality and as everyone knows way better than the movie.

First on my reading list Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame
