Re: Book Communities Online - Goodreads, Shelfari etc

I have a Goodreads account! I like it because I can keep up with all of the sequels that I need to read. It's also a good place to see new releases, and some early reviews on books that aren't released for the public yet. I also like to keep track of the books that I read, so Goodreads have definitely helped with that.

Re: Book Communities Online - Goodreads, Shelfari etc

That's a good idea. I have a goodreads but haven't used it really yet. I haven't had the time to transfer all of my books over from Shelfari, but I probably will this summer. If anyone wants to add me on either Shelfari or Goodreads, I'm freelantzer on both of those as well.

I've added you all on Goodreads. If I can figure out my shelfari account, then I'll add you too, but I don't frequent there much anymore.

Re: Book Communities Online - Goodreads, Shelfari etc

I was curious what people thought about Amazon taking over goodreads. I think it was a smart business decisions for Amazon but I fear it might ruin the site

Why do you think it would ruin the site?

I have a Shelfari that I just use to keep track of my reading. I haven't changed over because dang! I don't wanna have to transfer over all of my books and data one at a time. The only reason I was glad to see Amazon buy goodreads was because I hoped I could transfer everything with one click--but I realize that is unlikely.

I love the iPhone app, which allows you to scan books that'll bring up the exact edition you're reading. I sent you a request by the way.

Re: Book Communities Online - Goodreads, Shelfari etc

I read some concerns that Amazon might start censoring or otherwise manipulating unfavourable reviews so they are buried towards the end of the pile in order to keep the book's sales up. I have no idea how realistic of a concern that is though.

Thanks! I accepted. The scanning feature is awesome. I was having way too much fun with it when I first discovered it. I started scanning books on my bookshelf for no reason.
