Is there any way to see other members "Books I've Read List"?

  I am always looking for new ideas and thought this would be a great way to get some good book suggestions!

There is no way to see another members "books I read list".  But you can look at the daily posting of books member's have posted to get ideas.  Also you might want to look at the wish list for good book suggestions.

You can also check out the ratings on books for ideas.

Some other good ways to get book ideas are to look at the latest 25 reviews (choose Search under the blue/gray menu, then Member Book Reviews).

FABIL (Find A Book I'll Like) is under My Account, then My Lists, then Book Recommendations.

From the page with details about a specific book, there are often links for "Similar Books".  I like to follow them.

Another good way to find books you might like is to check out the games section. See what books are being offered and what books seem to be grabbed up quickly(or fought over). I also check out the WL of other people in the games and always find books I want to add to my RL or WL.

Another way is to sign up for the Daily Digest that will be sent to your e-mail each day.  To sign up go to your Settings tab and you will find Daily Digest listed in blue at the top of the section, or scroll down until you find it in one of the boxes.  It will ask you to select which genres you would like to see, and then you are set to go.  I have 3 genres requested and I get around 1200 different books to look at each day.  It sounds like alot, but it is easy to scroll down through them quickly.   You can easily click on which book you are interested in and you will bring up the information about it, member reviews and whether it is a book already in the system or one that you will need to put on your wish list.  You can do either right from there.
