Goodreads As Social Media

I love Goodreads. Does any book lover not love Goodreads? I'm constantly scrolling through Goodreads, adding books to my TBR, keeping track of my reading, finding pretty book covers, etc.

But you know what? I completely forget that Goodreads is a social media site. I forget that I can like and comment on other people's reviews. I forget that I can add friends and join groups and connect with more bookish people on this website. And it's just so weird to me that I forget this. For me, Goodreads is more of a tool for personal use, and that kind of makes me sad because I feel like I'm missing out on such a wonderful way to meet more bookish friends.

I know this is a very short discussion post, but it's actually something I've been pondering a lot lately. I think I'm going to make more of an effort to use Goodreads as a means of connection with other people in the book community.

How do you use Goodreads? Are you like me, using it for your own records? Or do you like to be social? Also, what are your favorite parts of Goodreads, some features that I really need to start utilizing?
