The Goodreads Book Tag

I saw this over on Maren’s blog, and while I don’t do too many tags I thought this one looked like fun! You should do it too! (Also, totally using her pretty image because I’m horrible with graphics, thanks Maren!)

I use Book Dragons here! Those then correlate to the stars on Goodreads.

What is your favorite quote?

Oh my goodness, I think I have a new favorite with each book! But I do really love this poem from Hafiz:

Who are your favorite authors?

What day is it, and what am I reading? Michael Crichton, Patrick Rothfuss, Elizabeth Gilbert, Naomi Novik, Jenny Lawson….I could keep going forever.

Are you a part of any Goodreads groups?

Yep, I’m in a few that I don’t participate much in, but my two main ones are AdultBooklr and ReadWomen. Both are Tumblr groups too, so I do more on Tumblr than in the Goodreads part. I’ve never really been a fan of the GR group interface.

What could Goodreads do better?

The group forums get so bogged down. I don’t know what to do to fix it, but I just never stay very active in them because the discussions are so hard to participate in.

Also, LET ME READ A BOOK MORE THAN ONCE. Yes, I know you can switch editions, but it’s just so complicated.

Lastly, why, if I put a book on one of my created sub-shelves (like, owned-tbr), does Goodreads automatically move that book to READ. I haven’t read the book. I want it to stay on TO-READ. Stop assuming, Goodreads.

UGH. I love you and I hate you, Goodreads.
