I'm looking at the Kindle Daily Deals and some titles look interesting to me but I wish I had more information to help confirm I want to make a purchase. I read the blurbs online. I talk to myself; going back and forth do I really need another book in my TBR pile to read. Then I sit some more until I get an ah-ha moment. What if I go to Goodreads and type in the title to see if any of my friends have read any of these titles. I carry through on this action and its brilliant. I find friends who have read some of the titles I'm reading. Several friends rating a book with five stars so that was an easy yes. Then three to four more titles were on Julie or Cathy's to read list. These ladies are always dangerous in person to buy books with and now it's carrying over to my e-reader experience. I was very happy to think about using Goodreads for book purchases and not just tracking what I've read.
