Now that the news is out and most people have had a time to breathe and consider what’s happening. I feel like because of the context of this blog things need to be discussed. (I love talking, so sue me)
So Thursday, March 28th, (to say the least) there was a large announcement that Amazon has bought Goodreads. Didn’t hear? Here’s the link to get you started.
What do you think?
Twitter blew up for about 20 or so minutes filled with opinions on the subject. Some members of Goodreads has withdrawn their account and left for greener pastures, aka: LibraryThing. But it was more drama rather than resolution. Causing more panic than anything else.
There are now interviews being conducted and surveys gauging the potentially affected crowd.
Read an interview here by Laura Hazard Owen at paidContent.
How do you feel about this?
I’m not 100% sure how this will really affect me, so we’ll see how things develop in the next few months to the next year.
