I do that, too. Or, rather, I'm too lazy to read the question properly and then answer wrongly a question that I know the answer to.

Many times I know the right answer, but in the quickness of answering I click on a surrounding wrong answer.

I need to get to the library or a book store so I can get a start on my 'must-read books' list for this year

Re: Book Communities Online - Goodreads, Shelfari etc

Another annoying question.. How can I add my favourite authors? I tried, but the link (on my profile) brings me to a page full of authors, but I can't search for the ones I want to add, .

The best way I know how on goodreads is to put the authors name in the search bar (or a book they wrote) then when the list of books comes up instead of clicking on the link for the book click on the link for the authors name underneath the book title, that will take you to the authors page.

Re: Book Communities Online - Goodreads, Shelfari etc

In the Never-Ending Book Quiz, whenever I get a question wrong because I accidentally click the wrong answer, it always seems to be a really easy question.

Don't worry. I think I ended up saying that Harry Potter was the main villain in the HP series, after misreading a question.

Re: Book Communities Online - Goodreads, Shelfari etc

I've learned that when I start logging the books I'm reading, I tend to read more. Especially when I see them all nicely organized on my 'shelf.' Does anyone find the same thing happens to them or is it just me?

Same here! I feel like I'm getting "credit." That sounds silly, but I guess it brings out the little school kid in me.

Re: Book Communities Online - Goodreads, Shelfari etc

I do exactly the same thing. I'm so anxious to get through a book quickly so I can move it from my "currently reading" to "have read."

Re: Book Communities Online - Goodreads, Shelfari etc

Same, I'm finding it very motivational! Just having a "to-read" section makes me want to get through all the books on that shelf so I can feel that sense of achievement, and physically moving it to "read" is very satisfying

Re: Book Communities Online - Goodreads, Shelfari etc

I agree i think i read more when i can see what im reading, It also helps me keep track of all the books i want to read, I get so many recommendations i tend to forget before i can get to them but if i put them in goodreads i can be reminded

Re: Book Communities Online - Goodreads, Shelfari etc

I agree that it is very motivating. I'm finding, though, that, while my 2011 Reading Challenge target is motivating me to read more books I haven't read before, doing the Book Quiz keeps reminding me how much I've forgotten about books I've already read and makes me want to go back and reread them. But then I'm reluctant to, because they won't count towards my Book Challenge target. So I've kind of got conflicting motivation. But it's all motivation to read, which is good.

Re: Book Communities Online - Goodreads, Shelfari etc

I have the same. I tend to read more, but then again.. When I see what everyone is reading, I think "Oh that's nice!" and go and add it to my to-read shelf. I honestly doubt that I will ever get to zero

Re: Book Communities Online - Goodreads, Shelfari etc

Not just logging, but that other people can see my progress makes me want to progress. I want to do more than just a few pages at a time, because I want them to think I'm reading a lot.
