Read anything good lately?

These days, it seems that most of us live a good distance from family and other loved ones. So how do we keep up with what they're reading? Good Reads offers a virtual peek-over-their-shoulders in a (not too) creepy way. Maybe better, you can check out what some authors are reading, too.

It's sort of like a book-lovers' MySpace, in which you can add books you've read, rate them, review them, and even discuss them--among some other neat options.

There are a couple things I'm ambivalent about, one of which you may have already discovered: you can't view some of the good stuff unless you sign up. But if the books compel you, you'll find yourself getting over your reservations quick enough.
