It’s probably appropriate to think ofGoodreads.comas Amazon’s social network. It doubled in size in 2012, and it did so again in 2013, according to ablog post on the site.
Goodreads is now up to 25m members from a base of 6.5m in 2011. The infographic shows that 4 books are found on Goodreads every second and that the site now has 29 million book reviews. The most popular book of 2013 was Dan Brown’s Inferno, which matches Amazon’s best-seller list.
The most popular quote from the site comes from Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare;
Life is a book and there are a thousand pages I have not yet read.
