Independent authors (Indies) considering joining Goodreads should think carefully about their reasons for joining. If you go ahead, you should share as little information as possible with them. Much of that information becomes property of Goodreads to be mined by their owner, Amazon and you lose control of it. I invite you to read my free Cautionary Tale. Hopefully it will save you some grief.
