Few months after my reading statement, I realized that I enjoyed Goodreads just to see my friends' reviews and recommendations (and having fun scanning the bar code of my books!), but I didn't actually use the app to track the pages I was reading, leaving comments or checking out the statuses of my friends.
At the same time, I still wanted to track my readings in 2015, because I'm a memory keeper (and a bit OCD), so I decided to write a journal, inspired by a bunch of bookstagrammers I follow. I set up my Alice in Wonderland edition Moleskine in a very simple way using a couple of stamps bought during a sale in a local shop (that I don't even remember) and I found my "workflow".
Nothing fancy, but I like to have a paper Goodreads to refer back and see my reading progress through the year. It's also freeing not having to think about the social aspect of the thing, no more "I didn't read in a week, what would my Goodreads friends think about me??" thoughts, no pressure. At these days, Goodreads is just a place to hang out with my fellow NovelTea Book Club members to me.
Do you like/use Goodreads? Did you ever feel the pressure of the social aspect of the site?
