Even Goodreads Authors think Goodreads is broken. I’m a Goodreads Author and I’ve been on Goodreads since 2010. They recently sent me some rather condescending emails telling me to refrain from engaging in self-promotion on Goodreads because it’s considered to be spam. Surely the very presence of an author on Goodreads counts as self-promotion? My friend link to the piece I wrote about it is here if anyone’s interested.
