After reading the introduction and the opening chapters, I keep thinking "I know all this." That thought raises the uncomfortable question: If I already know this, why am I not doing it?
“I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.”

The research projects have been completed, and I would like to thank everybody who has participated.*
So, I'm doing a super-important research project about the weirdos who inhabit the online community goodreads.com. What is this group for? THIS GROUP IS FOR ME TO INTERROGATE YOU YOU TO EXPRESS YOURSELF IN NEW, AMAZING WAYS BY ANSWERING QUESTIONS ABOUT THE WAY YOU USE GOODREADS.
*UPDATE, 12/13/10: As of last week, I've reorganized the threads in the hopes of making it clear what actually pertains to the project, and what is just fun conversation! This isn't to discourage off-topicness, but will hopefully make it easier for new members to not get totally overwhelmed. Again, thanks for the great conversations, and I'll be posting more questions gradually.*
Specifically, I'm doing a rhetoric project where I'm attempting to answer the questions: How are reviews on social cataloguing websites evolving as a genre? How do the authors of these reviews percieve the review writing process? Do these reviews all fit into one genre, or are there multiple genres of online book reviewing?
I may develop more questions as the project goes on, but this is where I'm starting.
