Wow, there are so many good stories to read right now!  How can we possibly keep up?  Personally, I use Shelfari (look for the sidebar item to see My Bookshelf).  Katie uses LibraryThing.  What do you use to keep up with what you've read and what you'd like to read?  Take a look at these two and consider moving your paper lists online!

Happy reading!

I use Good Reads, probably because I have a bunch of friends who use it. I don't know that I would otherwise prefer it over Shelfari or Library Thing.

I also have a couple of friends who use GoodReads, but I was already firmly addicted to Shelfari when they tagged me to sign up for GR so I wasn't too interested in it. I love keeping up with my books online though!
