Good morning! Welcome to another Sunday Potpourri, a post that focuses on life’s little tidbits, obsessions, etc.
The only blogs that are not featured are this one and Snow Sparks. Primarily because they have not been the traditional book blogs. But that seems to be changing. So who knows what could happen next?
Now for the bookish things. Lately I’ve noticed that I get lots of e-mails from Goodreads, offering “deals,” and it is annoying, since in many cases, I already have the books.
But then I realized that there is no category for “already have the book.” There is “want to read,” “currently reading,” “read,” etc.
And even the categories listed above are confusing, since you might have read the Kindle version of a book, but if your search leads you to the book, and it lands on one of the other versions, it will not show that you’ve read it.
I don’t want to complain, since I can’t offer a solution. I do know that I stopped participating in the Goodreads Challenge because, if I accidentally clicked that I read a book and it was the wrong version…and then I changed it…the stats would be wrong.
So…I do love Goodreads for telling me what I’ve read (once I click on the correct version), and this has saved me from duplicate book buys.
I need to change my iPhone settings somehow, as I can’t get to the Goodreads page from my phone. Which means that I can’t find the answers when I’m out and about…at Barnes & Noble, for example.
Any thoughts? Am I obsessively focusing on the wrong things? Are there ways to manage the Goodreads shelves?
