“The pleasure of all reading is doubled when one lives with another who shares the same books.” – Katherine Mansfield

One of things I like most about Goodreads is being able to share the books I love with friends.  Since Goodreads and Facebook can be linked, you can become Goodreads friends with your Facebook friends.  You can share the titles of what you are reading and read friend’s reviews on what they’re read.  It’s easier than ever to get a good book review from a friend and discover a book worth reading.
