A friend recently convinced me to join the online social network for book readers and I'm glad she did. Goodreads is a wealth of information about books for those who love to read. It is a wonderful way to discover books of interest that would otherwise never be found.
The Goodreads app is a marvelous way to work with the social network. It is tailor-made for the Android interface and a joy to use. If you are a Goodreaders member, run, don't walk, to the app store to get the app.
