What is Goodreads?

by Barbara J. Feldman on April 1, 2013

Goodreads is a social network that revolves around book reviews and recommendations. Founded in 2007, Goodreads has 16 million members, 30,000 book clubs and over 23 million book reviews. And Goodreads recently announced that they are being acquired by Amazon.

There is also a social networking component that I’m sure interests Amazon. I can imagine all sorts of ways Amazon could collaborate/integrate with Goodreads. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.
