I’m becoming a big fan of GoodReads. It’s a social network built around one of my major interests—reading—instead of around… around… Oh, bother. What is Facebook built around?! Cute toddler antics, I guess—or at least that’s what my friends are most interested in posting and reading.
So I have a GoodReads-related announcement. I haven’t told the 50% of my blog readership who encounters this blog through Google Reader, but I might as well let him in on it now: I have a new page, supplied by a nice GoodReads plug-in, listing out all the books I’ve read in 2011.
I made this page first of all for myself (and before I had GoodReads), because I found I was having a hard time remembering what I read in a given year and I wanted to have at least brief notes summarizing what I gleaned. But I did it for you two, too, my faithful readers. I started this blog because I wanted to be a challenge and encouragement to a narrow slice of people, just like certain seminary friends have been for me. Perhaps you’ll find some good recommendations on the list. The most significant ones have gotten longer reviews.
