Amazon and Goodreads: A Match Made in Reader-Heaven
The internet is lighting up with the news that Amazon has just acquired Goodreads.
Wow, huh? I can only imagine the wonderful new possibilities for readers, merging Amazon’s excellent e-reader with all the book sharing goodness of Goodreads.
It will be interesting to see how they blend. I love my Kindle. I love finding books to read on Goodreads. Won’t this be fun!
