I recently joined GoodReads and have enjoyed finding new books to read and rating the ones I've already read. It's also fun to see what my friends are perusing in their spare time. But I am wondering about an odd phenomenon I've found on the site...
You see, I have Brisingr by Christopher Paolini on my "to be read" shelf (third book in the Inheritance Series - first book is Eragon, second is Eldest). It makes sense to put it on that shelf because the book doesn't come out till September 20th. But, somehow this book has already been rated... 4.63 stars out of 5 to be exact. Now, maybe it's just me, but isn't it rather difficult to rate a book that's not published yet? Maybe they've somehow stolen a copy or perhaps they have psychic abilities that allow them to see things that my mere mortal mind just can't comprehend... either way, I hope the book is as good as they've rated it. I am really looking forward to reading it.
What about you? Are there any books coming out in the next little while that you can't wait to get your hands on?
