On the Goodreads website, users can add books to their personal bookshelves, rate and review books, see what their friends and authors are reading, participate in discussion boards and groups on a variety of topics, and get suggestions for future reading choices based on their reviews of previously read books.

Good Reading Habits
The first and most sacred tenet: 30 minutes a day (minimum)!
Keep a list of the books you have read. When you finish a book, write down the title, the author's name, and the date you finished it in a notebook dedicated to this purpose.
Keep a list of books to read next, maybe in a cart on amazon or a bookbag on the public library website.
If you are reading something that you don't really enjoy, don't keep reading it. A rule of thumb might be that if you are 60 pages in and not loving it, put the book aside and find something else to love!
Outside of the classroom, find or create a distraction-free zone. Turn off the Internet, the phone, even the music, and focus on reading for pleasure.
Expand the time you spend reading for pleasure. Is there a "down" time of the day when you can do some reading? Be especially conscious of your screen time, which will crowd out your reading time...
