After my last post, all my darling readers should be very interested in following my reading as I go. And by this point, I should have at least 5,000 fans following me. I don't have that many fans, but I should, and that's what counts. Dreams are everything, eh?
Anyway, especially since I like it so much, I figured I'd give a free advertisement to goodreads.com. It's probably the only networking website that I approve of. Facebook and Twitter are used only to promote myself. On the other hand I use Goodreads because it's fun and it's the only intellectually-based networking site that I know of. That's where I belong: intellectually-based websites. If you want to see what your friends are reading and, more importantly, see what I'm reading and what I think about various books, set up your free account on goodreads.com and find me, the great John H.D. Lucy. I promise to review every book I read... and books that I have already read but have not reviewed, you can ask for a review and I'll give it: that's how great I am to my fans. Ask and you shall receive, that's my policy.
As a bonus, I will also begin posting poetry, published and unpublished, on Goodreads. Too many people have asked me to start using Goodreads as a forum for showing off a little of what I can do and have done to refuse them. Ask and you shall receive, that's my policy, as I've said. Accordingly, from now on, the sample writing that I will post on this blog will be essays or short stories. So if you want to read some seriously good and image-rich poetry, you'll have to follow me on Goodreads.
