Why Goodreads Is Making The Switch And What That Means For You


Why Goodreads Is Making The Switch And What That Means For You.

Book reviwer and blogger “Books: The Cheapest Vacation You Can Buy” points out in this post that Goodreads  has moved away from Amazon for its basic book information, finding Amazon’s requirements “too restrictive”.

I’m not sure what that means, exactly, and I haven’t followed up independently with GR to see the whole story, but for authors and readers/reviewers with tons of content on the GR site, you may want to check your account, as some books will need to be “rescued” by January 30, 2012, i.e., have their title, author, and content matched.

Although this seems to affect few titles, the ones that are will lose their matching, so reviews and ratings will be floating around in GR space, opinionated orphans without a home.
