I thought this was an interesting article and wanted to share it with you. I’m a member of Goodreads and think it’s a good site for both readers and writers.
For authors, it’s a good site to expand the exposure for your book, get reviews, see what others are writing, and even for marketing. For avid readers it’s a good source for learning about new books and you can review books that you’ve read. The only downside is that you realize you don’t have enough time to read everything you think might be interesting.
