Has there been any discussion on a possible TD group on Goodreads? Updated with Link
I am not a member of a goodreads group nor do I understand how they work. Is there a goodreads group for book board members? Is it a redundant or stupid idea?

Update:

Okay there is at least some interest. I've set up a private group on goodreads. Link to the group is below, it should send a request to me that I will approve. I've never done this before so please be patient. TD Group - Goodreads

I use goodreads ranking when considering whether or not to read something but don't ever make my own reviews on there.

Anything over a 4.0 is a pretty safe bet.

I use it mostly for the to-read list, book progress, and the yearly challenge. Some of the suggestions and lists suck though. The site is mostly women, woke libs, and functional retards, which influences book ratings and rankings on lists. For instance, the 100 Best Books Ever and Books that Everyone Should Read Once lists contain weighty novels such as Green Eggs and Ham and Goodnight Moon. They are of course topped by To Kill a Mockingbird, Harry Potter, and Hunger Games. One of my personal favorites is the Books White People Need to Read list.

What's the problem?

Easiest way to explain it is that it's a social media for bibliophiles. You can keep lists of read, reading, and want to read books. It has community reviews and groups to help facilitate discussion. You can upload quotes and passages from kindle as well.

I understand the frustration. I dont FB or Twitter but Goodreads allows you to tune out the noise better than most. I've gotten most of my lists from other sources.

I find them pretty helpful - if you actually read the comments you can tell pretty easily if the highly rated book is something you will like.

I've never found the level of wokeness to be problematic (SWIDT?), but then again I have my rankings and opinions so I generally scoff at those who don't share them regardless of it is being woke or just having 1984 ranked way too high.

I don’t really have anything against them and not trying to be a book snob. They’re entertaining and are among the highest selling and most read books ever. They aren’t the greatest books of all time though.

My main point was that a lot of the lists and awards are skewed by a demographic different than your average TD poster. Young Adult/Romance novels top a lot of the “Can’t Wait Books of 20XX” lists for example.

To kill a mockingbird, Harry Potter are great books btw. And one of the greatest lines in history is "would you, could you with a goat?"
