Good Reads

The Oakridge faculty and staff and parents have the opportunity to join a website where we can share and discuss books with each other. Several of you and several parents who love to read have talked about a way to get together. Although physically getting together would be great, that is not easy in our environment. However, Goodreads.com offers us the ability to have on-line discussions which will perhaps lead to groups meeting together in the future. Faculty and parents want to know what the students are reading and to be informed about new books being published. This is a perfect site also for recommendations to be made for future purchases for the library. A group on Goodreads.com has already been begun, The Oakridge School Readers. Please consider joining today.

Goodreads is a free website for book lovers. Imagine it as a large library that you can wander through and see everyone’s bookshelves, their reviews, and their ratings. You can also post your own reviews and catalog what you have read, are currently reading, and plan to read in the future.
Signing up is simple—you just enter your name, email, and a password.

To start using Goodreads you should select books that you have read, that you are reading, or that you want to read and add them to “your books”.

Groups are the perfect way to bring a group of people together to discuss literature. You can join with The Oakridge group by joining The Oakridge School Readers.
