Goodreads Is Finally Cashing In On Its Devoted Community - Wired

Panzer's trip in the Catosphere today was interrupted by the sounds of wailing and crying. Following all the noise took our fearless kitty pilot to the Wired site. There he found a post about Goodreads that was causing all the book lovers woes.

Come on. You knew they'd do it.
According to the post, Goodreads has started selling ebooks. This week they introduced a program called Goodreads Deals. It's an opt-in program for Goodreads members to receive emails about books going on sale. Readers do have a choice of where to purchase their books. The books are available through Amazon (Goodreads owner), Apple, Barnes and Noble, Google Play, and Kobo.

Panzer says, "We knew it was going to happen. With 50 million book hungry readers, Goodreads is a cash cow for all the ebook sellers."

Note: This is a l-o-n-g post. You'll need two cups of tea and two muffins for today's reading selection.
