Why not make it social?

Reading is no longer a solitary event, if you choose, when you sign up for an online service like Goodreads or Library Thing.  Both sites include ways to organize and catalog your own personal library.  Whether you just want to have a list of the books on your physical book shelves or you want to neatly, and attractively, create lists of books you own, books you want to read, and/or books you've read, you can let loose your inner librarian.  Where the magic happens, though, is when you use these sites to connect with other readers, be they people you know, or strangers with similar reading tastes.  Find reviews and write reviews of your own, join a group....swapping reading recommendations has never been so easy!
