Count Me As One Of Those Folks Who Think It Sucks

I am, of course, referring to Amazon’s purchase of Goodreads.

I enjoyed Goodreads. It had an excellent recommendation engine that suggested some excellent stuff for me. But now, it’s part of the evil empire.

I can only assume that where it now directs you to a number of different venues for buying recommended books, with brick and mortar based Barnes and Noble featured prominently, it will soon only take you to Amazon… or else hide other options so that finding anything but Amazon is counterintuitive.

Ugh.
