So Goodreads has all kinds of lists about users and you can see where you rank both worldwide and in your own country in terms of being a top user, top reader, top reviewer, most popular reviewer, best reviews, top librarian, etc. Well, I just stumbled on the fact that I am currently in the Top Reviewers this week at #68 in the U.S. and #133 globally!
Now, this doesn't REALLY mean anything, it just means I have posted quite a few reviews this week - 36 to be exact. It may sound like a lot, but when you consider that the #1 Reviewer this week as posted 366, it seems like nothing. (Seriously, 366? Are they REALLY reviews, or quick one-liners? Perhaps I will have to investigate...)
Either way, it was just something kind of neat that made me smile. You know, because I am competitive and like recognition for accomplishments - yes, reading and reviewing is an accomplishment in my world!
Now, if I were to go back and give a single-line review for every children's book I have read with Eleanor so far, I think I could move up pretty quickly...
