December Newsletter and Holiday Gift Guide!

Posted by Elizabeth on December 4, 2008
Please check out our Newsletter and Gift Guide!

This month we interviewed Malcolm Gladwell, John Grogan and Dennis Lehane for our monthly newsletter, all interesting and influential authors in their own right. Goodreads member Andrew Lundwall contributed his poem "unscrew the moon".

We also had a blast putting together the Gift Guide for our users. Some fun ideas include book lover's pajamas, a quirky book light shaped like a novel, and a sensuous leather-bound journal. We took care to pick gifts at a variety of prices.

Hope you all have a happy December!
Elizabeth

Lisa Vegan I'd buy a Goodreads logo tote bag, or two!!! I'd love it if you'd add that item if/when you make additions/changes to the gift guide. Thanks for listening.

Suade I have to agree w/Lisa, too. I would gladly buy a tote-bag emblazoned with Goodreads.com on the side! But I have one gripe that's just now come to my attention...
I don't know if these two profiles are the real deal but whether or not they are or they aren't I'm upset about it. Rihanna and Carrie Underwood themselves now have their own Goodreads profile or, it's someone pretending to be them; either way I think it's a disgrace for Goodreads to allow that type of thing to go on here...we aren't Myspace or Facebook.

If they were on here as a member, just as any of the rest of us that would be fine but both profiles seem to be focused more on promoting their music careers than on the books they're interested in.

Can this be looked into?
