Goodreads is GOOD — for finding new reading material, following friends’ bookshelves, keeping track of your own reading — and for promoting your book(s).
If you don’t have a Goodreads account, it’s easy to join, or you can log in with your Amazon account. You’ll find reading suggestions, you’ll be able to connect with your contacts who are members already, and you can build a community around your own work.
How? This blog post on the Goodreads website will get you started. You’ll find advice on filling your own online bookshelf, engaging with readers, how to mention your own book in comments, how to connect with reviewers, and more.
Let us know how you are using Goodreads to engage with your readers!
And be sure to follow Goodreads on Facebook and other social media.
