Well! Amazon will acquire book recommendation site and readers’ social network Goodreads, according to an Amazon press release issued Thursday.
First I heard of this was on Twitter. Actually, it sounds like a match made in heaven, so to speak. Maybe they could integrate the sites so you can import a list of books you’ve purchased from Amazon to Good Reads or export you’re Good Reads reviews to Amazon? Course they *should* ask user permission to do so.
UPDATE (8/24/2014): They’ve followed my suggestion. You can now import books you’ve purchased from Amazon into your Good Reads account. Now if someone would just start a “Good Films / Good TV-on_DVD” site that exactly mirrors what you can do on Good Reads (listing rather than books DVDs you own, having the ability to post reviews, viewing clubs, discussion groups, etc.)
