I mean, I’ve had an account for the better part of 37 years, and I hardly use the sucker anymore. Anyone else? www.goodreads.com
My whole problem is that there is no friend-sharing-type program integration with reading. Why must reading be considered a solitary act? Look at the Twilight explosion. It certainly isn’t a best seller because it’s well written – all word of mouth. Social. Then you can gab and gab about what this vampire is doing to that wolf-creature and who is/is not kissing whom.
Facebook has some stale page that creaks along and barely works. And Goodreads. Really? I have to go to goodreads? I’d rather rant on a blog about it.
This all circles back, of course, to a Slate article I read this morning. Worth checking out. Because, and I hold my nose when I say this, Google will inherit the Earth. Or a moon. Maybe not our moon. Does Mars have a moon? (Editor: Yeah, It has two. Phobos and Deimos) They can have that one.
