No I’m not talking about books in your bookshelf wearing their coats and ties while sipping Martinis but social networks that serve the bookworm kind. Website like Goodreads is such a novelty in this saturated social media. It’s neither an underdog or up and coming social media star but just a simple plain site. Just by logging in using your Facebook or Twitter account you can have a digital space were you can list your favorite books and categorize it or announce to the world on what page you are on a book you are currently reading. By which it got me think. So what? You can post it on your favorite social media sites. You can’t share the book and let your online friends read it. So what gives? Are we really promoting literacy or just a bunch of show offs?
