Extra Credit is a new weekly(ish) feature where I give a quick shout-out to bookish things I love.
This week, I’m giving Extra Credit to Goodreads!
I’m a Goodreads junkie and I’m on the site daily. Mostly I use it to keep track of my reading progress, both on the individual books I’m reading and for my yearly challenge. It’s also my go-to site for reading reviews of books I want to read. I find that this particular community of readers is the best for giving good critical feedback for all kinds of books, especially pre-publication books (since Amazon doesn’t allow reviews until the publication date). Sometimes I even find the time to put some of my own reviews up to contribute to the collective pool. I know the acquisition of the site by Amazon will probably mean changes over the years, but for right now I’m fan and a regular.

Also, Brittany @ The Book Addict’s Guide wrote an awesome post last September about Goodreads, including a cool infographic based on a survey she took of book blogger’s Goodreads habits. Definitely check it out!
