I have been using it properly for only a few months, and I think it's a fantastic site. Even if it's only for ego boosts. According to this, in the 2-3 months I have been using the site, I have read 4600 pages of text, which is a pretty handy way of judging your speed as a reader. Better than judging it by book numbers. And seeing what friends are reading, and how much because I'm by nature nosy is really cool to see. I've also met someone on Goodreads who reads at least 500 books a year! Who uses this site?
