Goodreads in 2013

I joined Goodreads some time last year. I added a few books to my shelves and that was that. Much like some other online things, I didn't get heavily involved in Goodreads. My account sat silent and unused until yesterday. I decided to give it another go and track my reading this year. I also want to know what my friends are reading. And I am sure you all have been dying to know what I am reading.

I've dusted off my account and joined the 2013 Goodreads Reading Challenge, setting a goal of reading 20 books this year. That's not an unrealistic goal for me. What might be unrealistic is me actually keeping up the activity of logging what I read in Goodreads.

There is a widget over on my sidebar that shows my progress in the challenge. So far, I've finished A Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling.

Not only did I read it, but here's my review on Goodreads:

It's not Harry Potter but still a good read. A very clever soap opera-ish tale full of proper bad stabbing and small village political connivery, executed by believably flawed and fouled characters.

I am currently reading The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick.

I like to read a book before seeing the movie and I really want to see this movie. The book so far is so good.

Anyone want to join me in a reading challenge? Find me on Goodreads.
