Challenging yourself is one of the best ways to learn. Joining a challenge with other people can be a lot of fun. Like NaNoWriMo, for instance.

Goodreads is a little corner of the internet especially for us readers. It makes it easier to track your reading, leave reviews, share your favorite books with friends, and find more books based on the ones you currently love.
