Answering Questions: Mike Monaco Set 2 (2 of 4)

What are reading these days? Are you on Goodreads? -- Mike Monaco

Gaming wise I've been reading the Rifts Ultimate Edition and Burning Wheel Fantasy Roleplaying System books lately. Rifts is a bitch of a system but the fluff more than makes up for it. Non-gaming wise I'm reading Tek Power by William Shatner, Playing at the World by Jon Peterson, and Leviathans of Jupiter by Ben Bova (which I started last night).

I've never heard of Goodreads before your question. What is it?


  1. -- it is basically a competitor to Librarything. It is a site where you keep track of stuff you're read or want to read, and optionally rate books, post reviews, get recommendations based on your reading habits, and recommend things to other people. Recently they were assimiliated into the facebook, so it has also becomea way to brag about all the time you have for reading or something. I recommend it warts and all. I make time for about three things online: email, my blog, and Goodreads!

    I also just discovered that some publishers give away books thru the site, so you can sometimes get freebie copies of books, though they expect you read them if you win.
