Goodreads Became More Important to Writers in 2012

When it comes to online venues for books Amazon dominates the conversation, but Goodreads, with its sole focus being books rather than e-commerce, could arguably be more important to authors. In 2012, Goodreads grew from 6.5 million to 13 million members. Members contributed 20 million book reviews to the site; and members were active in  Goodreads Book Clubs with one boasting 7,000 members; and groups, including an Author Feedback Group and a Librarian Group. Check out the infographic Goodreads created celebrating their year by the numbers.
