I discovered the reading challenge tracker on goodreads late last year. It not only keeps up with how many books you have read it tells you if you are behind or ahead and by what percentage. It helped me keep up last year at the end of the year when I was worried I wouldn't hit my goal and I'm hoping that it will help me keep on top of it this year. http://www.goodreads.com/challenges/207-2012-reading-challenge

I don't know if I want to set a goal but that's a cool site.

More reasons, I'm not going to sign up for Goodreads yet. For me, it could be Pandora's box. And I just don't have the time for another wonderful site!

Did I mention the frequent book giveaways? I've won two books from those devil

eta I just realized that I posted this in the wrong forum. I meant to post it in CMT. lol It's boring up there anyway, nothing but political, prayers and redundant topics.

I'm a Goodreads member too and I love it! I'm also over on Library Thing and I've won several books from there. Chris, how can I win books on GR?

To enter for book giveaways you go to explore and click the arrow, select the second option which is giveaways. From there click enter to win on one of the ones you're eligable for, that will be most of them, and wait to see if you win.

Thanks! I need a few more books to read! Not! But oh what a thrill it is to receive a freebie!

Man there a ton of books being given away, I got bored and quit entering. Looks like a ton of them end tomorrow though if anyone wants to enter.

You're welcome, it doesn't seem to be too hard to win them. I used to enter all of them but now I just enter the ones that sound like good books.
