I’ve finally had time to get properly acquainted with Goodreads.  I’m enjoying discovering the potential of the site already and have lots of ideas for new books to read.  I’m also enjoying the discussions that are available.

Today I’ve joined the Author’s Program so all of my books are listed on Goodreads for people to have a look at and review if they are so minded.

This blog also links in with the site.  How nifty is all of this?  I zip seamlessly from this blog to Twitter to Goodreads and don’t even know I’m doing it.

If I only liked Harold Pinter more I’d pin something on Pinterest.  (No kidding, I thought it was about the esteemed dramatist when I first saw it.)

I suppose I’d better remember that when I write on one forum it is instantly zapped to another.  Hope it doesn’t make me cautious about what I write.

I’ve got to add some widgets and sundry whistles, flutes and bells and then I will be a fully-functioning merry-go-round of an author.  Or maybe a Maypole.  Yes, that’s appropriate for today.  A Maypole of an author.

Now I’ve no idea why the blog decided that this picture is appropriate to this blog.  Possibly something to do with Mayday.  But what the heck, I like it and they are reading.
