Goodreads has become a front-and-center social network for authors.
First with their Amazon relationship (Amazon purchased Goodreads in 2013), and now they’re topping out at over 50 million users.

Goodreads CEO Otis Chandler cites three primary factors behind this acceleration: “a critical mass of book reviews,” “explosive” mobile growth, and international expansion.
If you’re not on Goodreads or if you haven’t touched your account in a while, you should consider all the benefits this site offers. I go into more in-depth strategies in my upcoming, updated, edition of How To Sell Books By The Truckload so keep an eye out for the release in August!
In the meantime I want to ensure you know about Goodreads awesome list and ranking feature: Listopia.’
