Before I start to
explain the hidden Gem of Goodreads I want to first say to you that If you LOVE
to read I urge you to start a Goodreads account.Goodreads is a social media
site where users can share what they are reading with one another. It has
similarities to Facebook in that you can have a friends list but also
incorporates a library of books that you can add to your profile and show
others what you are reading or what you have already read.

Goodreads explains that you can, “See which books your friends are reading. Track the
books you’re reading, have read, and want to read. Check out your personalized
book recommendations. Our recommendation engine analyzes 20 billion data points
to give suggestions tailored to your literary tastes. Find out if a book is a
good fit for you from our community’s reviews.”

I have my own Goodreads account and love
its main feature of being able to list, write and share reviews of the books
that I have read. There are other features too with the site that I feel do get
overlooked and wanted to shine some light on the hidden gem that I found that
gives access to its users to read Free stories. Here is how you can access Free
stories:
1) Login to Goodreads
2) Click the Home tab, you should see a view
similar to my own.
3) Click to Expand the Explore menu
4) Click Creative Writing. This is where all of the
Free stories and books are. The great thing about this page is you can browse
by Categories, Genres, Active, Popular, Friends and New. There is also a small
link, just to the right of “New” called “My Writing” where you can write and
post your own writing. Your writing would then be saved to the “Creative Writing” area for the Goodreads community to see.
5) When you find a story that you are interested in
reading, you can simply read the chapters by clicking on the story title and at
the end of each chapter there is a like button and also share buttons to share
on other social media sites.
Now it is time for you to get started and have a look yourselves.
