I love how the books can be nicely catalogue!
This is what the homepage looks like.
The book reviews are really what interest me. With so many people using this site, you can get all sorts of views for just one book, from whichever genre. You can even find Malay, Arabic, French (etc..etc..etc..) books' reviews... It's great way to find what to read next.
There are even fun stuffs like trivia and quizzes... and you get to vote on all sorts of list (like the "Best Books of the 20th Century" and "Worst Books of All Time"... amazingly, Twilight was voted on both lists! haha).
I have also joined one of the groups called Goodreads Malaysia... and it is so great to be pleasantly suprise by the number of bookworms out there. Who says Malaysians don't read?! The community even put up a challenge of "50 Buku Setahun (2011)"... where you challenge yourself to reading 50 books!!! Erk... I don't think I can manage that... so, I've set my target at a humble 20 this year (see the widget I have on my right ----> ).
To all my friends out there, come sign up on this site. I would love to know what you've been reading and your views on them.

My dear rumet bought this for my coming 25th birthday (thank you met~!!! sorry I've read it before my birthday =P). I've always been wanting to read this book, to see why it's so famous... and I love it. The story is told from the view a little Scout Finch (somehow stories written from the kids' view are really good...just like Room). I guess a lot of us already know the general plot of this book is about a lawyer trying to defend a black man who was accused of rape (which he didn't do). Considering the heavy topic, i.e. on racial equality, aside from having a good court scene, the book is also suprisingly amusing and warm. I might as well give this a 5.0 / 5.0!

Seriously what?! The guy is being so damn generous to give $28-billion to charity and these people are talking how this would cost him his Forbes title?! Who cares! He's helping so many people (as compared to keeping all the wealth to himself...sampai mati pun tak abis duit tu). I know I like watching the Forbes list on E! for entertainment purpose, but I simply love what Mr. and Mrs. Gates are doing here...hope they'll continue on the effort and inspire others to follow (I understand even Warren Buffet is joining in to help the Gates Foundation! nice =D)! Don't give a toot about the list k!
5. Would like to experience watching a play at Istana Budaya~ Will Lat the Muzikal be worth the trouble?

1- It's a romantic comedy (so you don't have to think much)
2- It's directed by Wang Lee Hom himself (his 1st movie), which he won the Best New Director for it
3- The theme song to this movie is amazingly beautiful (which I think Lee Hom wrote too)
4- It has a happy ending... yay~
5- You'll get a good exposure on Chinese music
but most of all, you know the MAIN reason to watch this is because:
there's Wang Lee Hom acting in it!!! haha... dduuhh...
Plot? You can just google it up. Should you really watch? I say yes! haha... btw, here's the theme song to the movie... YOUTUBE LINK HERE (dunno somehow I cant embed or share the video here) anyway... even if you don't understand the lyric, you know the music is beautifully arranged. hee~
