Goodreads users can add books to their personal bookshelves, rate and review books, see what their friends and authors are reading, participate in discussion boards and groups on a variety of topics, and get suggestions for future reading choices based on their reviews of previously read books. The site provides default bookshelves—read, currently-reading, to-read—and the opportunity to create customized shelves to categorize a user’s books. It also offers quizzes and trivia, quotations, book lists, and free giveaways.
