Goodreads is a social network which provides users with access to thousands of other readers, many of whom are fellow enthusiasts. Users can create their own personal profile or join existing ones to share interests and read what others have posted. The site was founded in 2005 by former Harvard students Matt Drudge and Chris Hughes. Since its inception it has grown rapidly, becoming one of the most popular sites on the internet. The site currently boasts over 200 million registered members worldwide.
The site allows users to rate each other’s posts, comments, and even books they’ve read. Posts are rated from 1 (lowest) to 5 (highest).
Ratings range from “I don’t care” to “this is my favorite book ever.” A user can also add a rating of any kind, but ratings are generally less than five stars. Some users choose not to post at all; these accounts disappear after 24 hours.
Users can also subscribe to specific types of content, such as fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and so forth. Subscriptions cost $9.99 per month or $79.99 annually.
Mental Aspects of Sport Fighting Edit
A good sport is one who wins without effort and loses without pleasure. A true warrior should never boast of his victories or excuses for his defeats.
Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve.
Enemies have the greatest power to change you one because you care about them and two because you have to beat them.
Choose your problems because you will become what you think about all day long.
Respect all people and help the less fortunate whenever possible.
