How I Use It
I use it with older students due to the social media aspect. I also make sure parents are aware of the site. Students love to see what others are reading and have gotten many great suggestions from this site. I enjoy hearing students recommending books to each other because of something they found out about on GoodReads!
My Take
Love, love, love this site! This is a great site to use for reviewing books but is also a great site to use when looking for reading suggestions! There is a social media element so your "friends" on GoodReads can see how you rate books, which books you are currently reading, and which books you want to read in the future. Kudos for a site that celebrates reading!
