I used World Book Night as a reason to speak with my son's school (their 8th grade class) about GoodReads and such. I recommended it as a tool to find books, and to read other's reviews to get ideas on what makes a good review. Although I had to drop a few groups just before my presentation that day... did not want to influence young minds

Many teachers and libraries already use it as a tool.
Please keep in mind that to open a GR account the user must be at least 13 years old.

This is one blog by a school librarian.
I'm sure there are many such blogs by GR members, but this one with her 2012 challenge is worth seeing. I believe her regular reviews of YA selections are included with the books on the shelves.

I was wondering if there is a way to introduce/promote Goodreads into the classroom or school libraries? It is such an amazing resource to encourage reading in a social setting. I can see GoodReads library shelves/groups created by elementary/middle/high school teachers/librarians for their students to review/discuss recommended reading lists.

Flagging a post will send it to the Goodreads Customer Care team for review. We take abuse seriously in our discussion boards. Only flag comments that clearly need our attention. As a general rule we do not censor any content on the site. The only content we will consider removing is spam, slanderous attacks on other members, or extremely offensive content (eg. pornography, pro-Nazi, child abuse, etc). We will not remove any content for bad language alone, or being critical of a particular book.
