Amazon buys Goodreads

goodreads So that’s the Book Depository and now my favorite review location gobbled up by Amazon.  It’s not too bad if they don’t change too much.  I quite like the way that Goodreads does things.  I fear that Amazon will either close it down, incorporate it and slowly bleed off members and then close it down or make all roads lead to Amazon.

I am sure more knowledgeable minds will through their two cents on this, but anytime the book world gets smaller, less diverse I can’t agree that it’s a good thing, especially in the long term.

Your thoughts?
