In my life, I need both. I need the cup-of-coffee chat with a fellow traveler, and I need affordable dog food and paper towels in large quantities. My fear is that these two cannot exist in the same arena.
I will not act hastily. Goodreads has proven to be a top-shelf community, and I will extend the courtesy of watching things play out before I reach any conclusions. However, I must say, I did feel an ominous pall of lament when I read about the acquisition.
P.S. – To the Goodreads Team, Congratulations! If Goodreads were not such an outstanding website, Amazon would not have taken notice. You have every right to be proud and to celebrate.
