I have used Goodreads for a while, mostly because I like the Twitter tie in feature and the tracker of how many books I have read in a year, but I recently hooked it up with my Facebook account. As a result, when I put in a status update on Goodreads, it pops up not only on Twitter but on Facebook as well (I am coming to adore social media). Cue amusing conversation with my mother:
Mum: I have a question about your Facebook status.
Mum: You know when you say you’re on page 150 of a book on Tuesday, and page 200 of a totally different book on Thursday, are you reading lots of books at once?
Mum: So you read… 400 pages in 2 days?
Mum: That’s ridiculous. How’s work?
Mum: And how’s your work on your Open University degree (note: in addition to full-time employment with a big 4 accounting firm in London, including working towards a professional qualification – due to be completed in a month wooooo – I’m that much of a sucker for punishment that I’m doing a second Bachelor’s degree, in Modern Languages – although I speak German so a third of it was super-easy)?
Me: yes, well… hmm. Reading’s more fun.
