kris’ good reads expedition: diary entry 5



Stealing Adding books to my Good Reads thing from the lists that other people have created appeals to my inherent laziness.

To this end, I’ve decided to continue appropriating from others and not actually add anything myself. I figure that they’ll turn up eventually anyway.

About Kris

Reads, rants, randoms & R+s. You've been warned. BTW, don't follow me if you're a GLBTQQphobic wanker. It won't end well. For you.

    That's how I did my whole damn list. LOL If I'd had to start from scratch entirely I would never have done anything. If you want to add a book that's not on there its quite a bit of work. Most of the ones missing for me are shorts and I'm not sure its worth that amount of work for a 10 page story.

  2. Wren says:

    Okay, I've been lurking over here and now I have to say, Kris, you have led me down…some…not-garden path! I've had a goodreads account and never did anything with it. Then you do these posts and I think OMG I must update my account cuz I am gonna be an author and now it's like crack b/c I have a freakin' spreadsheet of the books I've read but goodreads won't read it and so I'm typing in the title or the authors and adding them. And just a little OCD compels me to complete the whole damn list *deepbreath*
    All better now.
    But dang, if nobody friends me i'll be p.o.'d
    Smiley face,
    Wren

    Tam: “If I'd had to start from scratch entirely I would never have done anything.”

    Ditto! Lazy, I haz it.

    “If you want to add a book that's not on there its quite a bit of work.”

    I didn't even bother looking to see what was involved. I win! 🙂

    Wren: Mwahahahaha!

    “Hi. My name is Kris and I'm a Good Reads addict.” Can't you just see us sitting around a virtual community hall for a meeting of GRAnon. *snort*

    Wren, hun, how are we meant to friend you if we can't find you?? This is me: http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/2609109-kris. Go friend me. No pressure tho. *tapping foot* Whenever you're ready…

  5. Kassa says:

    Ok, I totally caved and joined Good Reads. If all the cool kids are doing it. *sigh* Im there! And friended! I will bribe to get friends.

  6. Kris says:

    Do you think there's something wrong with us?? Could we be obsessed, do you think??

    Kassa, bribery MUST come in the form of gay porn. Just sayin'.

  7. Tam says:

    I'd be your friend Kassa (we're all such lemmings) but I don't know how to find someone if you don't know their e-mail address. Anyway, this is me

    http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/2620907

    Maybe you can find me and friend me.

  8. Jenre says:

    I've added nearly all my books that way. Thanks mostly to JenB and Richelle!

    The rest were added by typing in the authors name and then adding the books.

  9. Ingrid says:

    I just went trough pages of lists and added the ones that I read *g*

    Anyone here not on my friends list yet: this is me http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/2609810

  10. Wren says:

    GRAnon…one book at a time.
    I am having a difficult time friending you Kris. Is it cause I am using a mac? When I go to the add friends page, I can't use that string you gave me. Is there some other place to try it?
    I would think you would find me by using wren or wrenboo. Where does that http string come up cause I don't know that I have one.
    *wahhh.sniff*
    Wren

  11. Tam says:

    Wren: Click on your name at the top and it will take you to your profile page, then check the URL address at the top. That's what I added.

    I think you can only search for friends by their e-mail address. Anyway, search for me by:

    tammy.ames(at)rogers.com

  12. Wren says:

    Tam, I did it! I added you. So exciting!
    My address is wrenboo@gmail.com

  13. I am keeping an eye on you! Thief, thief!

  14. nichem says:

    That's how I added all my books too. I didn't even consider putting one in from scratch. My laziness beats my OCD any day. 😛

    And YAY everyone is joining Good Reads now! (but if you guys don't like it, it's all Kris's fault– not mine)

  15. Kris says:

    “I am having a difficult time friending you Kris.”

    I get that a lot, Wren. I'm awesome and adorable so don't get why myself.

  16. Kris says:

    “I am keeping an eye on you! Thief, thief!”

    Hehehe. I've been through your list already, baby!

  17. Kris says:

    Jen and Ingrid:

    I cut a swathe through Lily's list first then Elisa's then Richelle's then Tracy's then KB's, etc, etc, but there were a number of ocassions where I got distracted and started going through author's lists. Then I would have to go to the original list and start again cos I'd forget what page I was on. Good Reads ADD.

  18. Kris says:

    “but if you guys don't like it, it's all Kris's fault– not mine”

    The fuck it is, Richelle!

  19. Lily says:

    I cut a swathe through Lily's list first

    I'm deeply honored to have been your first 😀

    I'm still cutting swaths thru people's list. It's like a never ending project. Why do I have so many books? Oh yeah, I know why, it's cause I'm an addict.

  20. Kris says:

    “I'm deeply honored to have been your first :D”

    I knew you would be, Lily.

    I think we've all proven beyond a doubt that we're addicts so you're in good company, sweetie. 🙂

  21. Tracy says:

    We were supposed to do it ourselves? Wow – you learn something new everyday.

  22. Kris says:

    Yeh. Go figure.
