Fortunately, younger me read more books than I do. That nerd was constantly reading.
Of course, I understand more of what I do read these days.
We love reading lists! They are great to plan your reading ahead, read the books in a series in a right order, and discover new titles. Telling the truth the reading lists make a huge contribution to our growing TBR pile!

To all US book lovers:
The reading list feature fo booklikes is at http://booklikes.com/apps/reading-lists or you get to it by selecting "apps" from the main menu. Screenshot:
If you tell booklikes to add all books from the reading list, it creates a shelf named the same and adds them. Unlike listopias on goodreads, the lists don't show on the book pages and the list creators manage (you can comment to request updates or discuss something). No voting campaigns or paid promoters gaming the lists, yay! Example screenshot from reading list Read Alike List for "How It Went Down" 2015 Coretta Scott King Author Honor Book :
Twenty-five-year-old Gavin Ellis has always had the love and support of his family ever since he was a little boy and couldn't stop talking about his penis. He's also always had their unsolicited advice and uncanny knack of embarrassing him at all costs. Now that he's an adult and trying to convince the love of his life to love him back, things haven't changed very much from when he was younger.
When Gavin's best friend Tyler suggests he make a to-do list of items that will ensure he wins the girl, Gavin is one-hundred-percent on board: after a few six packs.
After puking in the shrubs, a bad experience with Viagra, a Sex-Ed course gone wrong, and a slew of other mishaps courtesy of his family and friends, Gavin is pretty sure this list will be the death of him.
Sometimes, trying to make someone love you with a list isn't always the best idea.
