Just curious as to how many people have an account with Goodreads. It's kind of what I like to think of as a reader's Facebook although really all you are doing is keeping up on what your friends are reading, keeping track on your own read and backlogs and rating the books you have read. I find it really handy for getting recommendations of the kinds of books that I like and there are all sorts of little things you can do like make or vote on 'Best of' lists, take part in or make your own reading quizzes and set up and keeping track of your yearly reading goals. You can set it so that it's integrated with your Facebook timeline or you can keep it separate. I've found it very useful and I think it would complement our current "Books" thread very well. If you think this sounds good then you can check it out here: http://www.goodreads.com/
And if you do make an account or you already have one then feel free to add me. This should be a link to my profile. If you go to your profile then you should find a link to your own profile (just under your name and main details) and you can post it here and I'll add you to my friends. I think most of us probably have a lot of similar reading interests so I'm looking forward to getting some good reading ideas.
