Virtual bookshelves are spacesavers

I'm one of those people who multi-tasks as a way of life. My job involves wearing earplugs (to block the high-pitched harmonics from my drill on glass), but that doesn't mean I can't listen to audio books at the same time! It just means I have the volume cranked way up on a pair of big ol' headphones. (They're actually the $1 headphones you can buy from Jetblue when you fly with them! Sound quality doesn't matter much when you're just listening to someone read.)

To organize all my reading (and listening) material, I joined the Goodreads website. They let you add books to your virtual bookshelves so you can review what you've read and keep track of your book list for the future.

There are also groups for book discussions, and a community to keep up with your friends' reading. I've found the discussions and reviews mightily helpful when trying to pick new books to read, and I actually love the friend feed where I can read my friend's reviews as they write them.

Goodreads also has some fun widgets to add to your blog (as you can see), so you can share your literary cred with the world!
