The problem with books, for me is that more I read the more I want to read and there appears to be an unlimited supply. There are event plys of ways I can find more books to read and att to my ‘To Read List’
- Many of the books I read recommend other books which I often add to my ‘To Read List’.
- I often recommend books to people and they kindly recommend books back to me sometimes even multiple at a time
- If I like an author I like to read their other books ()so I won’t start reading any of these [‘prolific authors’](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_prolific_writers”Prolific authors on wikipedia”) Note 1
One of my goals for 2015 is to read 24 books (2 a month). There are many ways I consume the written (and read word) including:
- Paperbacks – I love books and one of the best thing about them is that your you can lend then to people and give them away
- Kindle – I don’t read my Kindle as much as I should. It is great
- Audiobooks – I have subscriptions to Audible and I easily consume a book or 2 a month
Goodreads has been going a long time and appears to have a great community.
Shelfari is by far the most visually pleasing and also has some embed options:
If you have a Kindle Account you will also have a Kindle Reader Profile
I have read some, mainly fiction, authors in the past who have been quite prolific:
Isaac Asimov – Wrote nearly 500 books
Stephen King – 54 novels and counting plus many other writings
Iain (and M.) Banks – about 30 books before his untimely death
