Goodreads is fun; Dickens; Mortimer

I've been pretty indifferent to most of the recent social-network sites, but I'm really enjoying goodreads.com. I'm a pretty busy reader, with a large to-read list etc., and I like (but am very undisciplined about) recording my thoughts in little reviews after finishing books, and this site provides for easy and social-as-you-want-to-be tracking of all of this.

Here are a couple of reviews I posted recently:
  1. On ''Becoming Dickens'' by Robert Douglas-Fairhurst
  2. On ''Collected Plays: Volume One'' by John Mortimer
