Ralsina.Me — Roberto Alsina's website

Reading: goodreads.com

If you read this blog on the web­site (and you do, be­cause my feed is garbage ;-) you may have no­ticed a goodread­s.­com wid­get on the right.

It's not that my read­ing habits are in­ter­est­ing to any­one, since I have be­come a very shal­low read­er in the last two years or so (a ter­ri­ble, ter­ri­ble in­vo­lu­tion caused by all the free sci­fi ebooks float­ing around), but I love that site. In the past I post­ed some book-re­lat­ed stuff here, but it was al­ways sort of guilty about it, post­ing things my read­ers (few as they are) prob­a­bly don't give a damn about.

With goodread­s, I have a way to vent my shal­low opin­ion about my shal­low read­ings. I need the same thing for movies.

Al­so, it's a much more rea­son­able thing than all that "now lis­ten­ing" idea. Who care what you are lis­ten­ing? It lasts for 3 min­utes! A book is some­thing you have in your head for at least a cou­ple of days! It is so much more mean­ing­ful.
