I am a total bibliophile! Almost everything I write is connected in some way with books I have read. I love goodreads.com and am wondering how many hubbers are out there too. I love to talk about books and what people are reading. Here's a link to my profile if anyone would like to connect: http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/5807471-faustina
Be warned though! I read some very old and rotten stuff. But don't worry, I would never expect anyone to suffer through some of the old turkeys I've read (sign that I have no life! )
I've seen the ads for goodreads.com and wondered what it is about. What is it about?
If imdb is for movie lovers, goodreads is for book lovers. goodreads.com is sort of a combination of imdb and a social network. The site provides info about nearly every book that was ever written. It helps you create lists and keep track of what books you would like to read. From the social network standpoint, you can connect with people who are reading the same things you are and can join various online book groups. Goodreads also has lots of other goodies (no pun intended!) such as contests for recently published books.
I am not a member, but I use the site periodically for reviews of books. They seem to have a great group of book lovers who write helpful reviews.

Do you follow hubbers without reading their writing first?If so how do you decide to follow them? On what criteria do you base their worthiness to be followed by you?There could be obvious answers but each individual can answer for themself.

I've come to the conclusion that in order to get people to even look at your hubs, you must post in these forums. It may help get a few more fans, but if it doesn't, what have you lost. I've come here to hubber's hangout to see if anybody will become curious about my writing. I'm guessing I'm not...
