Blogging #atozchallenge O is for Open

Open a new Page and discover a world of fun… One of my favorite social media sites is Goodreads, so that’s what i am going to talk about today. Opening a new page is like opening yourself up to new adventures, new books, new groups and new friends.O is for Open

Goodreads…it’s the social media site for readers. If you haven’t yet tried Goordreads, by all means do so. It is easy-breezy to set up a page. Just go to and say create an account. It’s free and it’s fun.  Once you set up your page, you can add people in your address book and you can also search for new friends.

I have met some of my favorite reviewers on Goodreads, and I am always doing special book giveaways for the groups there. Once you created your own page (kind of like Facebook) then just search “giveaways” and a wealth of treasures will appear. You can register for as few or as many as you want.

And there are groups…like a certain type of fiction? Chances are there’s a fun group at Goodreads filled with  others who enjoy the same thing. Join a group and before you know it you’ll have tons of new friends. I belong to a number of groups, some of my favorites are: Novel Ladies, The Sisterhood f the Traveling Book, and Southern Lit Lovers…oh, and then there is the Cozy Mystery Group and a dozen more that I enjoy.

When you get to Goodreads, stop by and become a fan of mine. You’ll get all the latest news and lots of fun contests and giveaways.

Goodreads, it’s not just another website…it’s THE  website for book lovers.



About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
