I think the story of the week was Amazon's purchase of Goodreads. Kind of mind-boggling to have a company that's a publisher and bookseller acquire a platform on which the content is reader-generated.

From a business point of view, it makes perfect sense.

I daresay Amazon's self-publishing contracts will soon offer some kind of 'Promote your book on Goodreads for only $X.'
