At the risk of sounding a bit needy I'm going to throw this out there;

Any one want to be pals on Goodreads?

A lot of people are reticent about adding others - fear of rejection? Like to keep to themselves? General misanthropy to go with the bibliophilia? Who knows.

I say you can never have too many book-loving friends so if you want to add me, it'll be yes. Or comment below if you're up for connecting with your fellow group members and I (and perhaps others) will add you.

I don't get to talk to half of you as much as I would like btw, so please feel free to pipe up and start discussion topics too.

All the best, Jules ;)

Micah Sisk (micahrsisk) | 563 comments I basically accept any friend invites...but rarely invite others unless I see posts that make me think we're of like minds ;D

Thanks Ken :) And I feel flattered by the request in that case, Micah ;)

I like to reserve judgement until all the results are in ;)

message 7: by Micah (new)

Micah Sisk (micahrsisk) | 563 comments Very wise.

Dave (dcr_writes) | 114 comments May I throw in that making Goodreads friends with Jules has proven to be a truly brilliant thing. I suggest everyone do so. :)

I'm pretty open to making Goodreads friends since the combination of seeing how you post in groups + booklists makes it pretty easy to say yes.

Whereas FB friends have a much higher threshold, and Twitter or G+ take a little more poking around to see if follows make sense, though I have to say I have a lower Twitter threshold for following, especially since I do sort into lists to filter for certain types of content.

Just for a wonderfully surreal moment, I mis-read it as 'Goodreads Fiends'. What the hell, I guess you need all the fiends you can get!

message 12: by Jamie (new)

Jamie Maltman (jamiemaltman) | 156 comments Mod
Well you already misread it, since it says Goodred friends in the title. ;) So put it together as:

Goodred Fiends

and it sounds like a writing prompt.

J.A. Ironside (julesanneironside) | 653 comments Mod
Friends. Fiends. I'll take either ;)

You do put a lot of thought into your vetting process, Jamie! I just aim for not befriending a spambot! Lol

Stephen Hayes (stevethehayes) | 1 comments Hi,
Dipping my toe into this social media thing as my third YA fantasy book comes out and I'm finding some great people. I'd be happy to connect with any of you (and sent out friend requests, as well).

message 22: by S. Naomi (new)

S. Naomi Scott (snaomiscott) | 2 comments Hi all

I'm happy to send and receive friend requests - I'm a highly eclectic reader so I'm always happy to dip into other peoples' shelves to find something new and interesting to read. :-)

Thanks for reading.

message 23: by [deleted user] (new)

Hey, send me friend requests, for those I haven't sent some too. I'm a self-publisher that would love some feedback and give some.

message 27: by Shell (new)

Shell Bromley | 54 comments Fiends sounds like a good idea. But how many fiends does a person need before she can start up an official league of evil?

message 28: by [deleted user] (new)

I don't necessarily fear getting rejected, but I think others fear me. Unfortunately, I think some are a bit intimidated by my approach-y personality.

K.P. Merriweather (kp_merriweather) | 189 comments I'm always open to warm bodies to throw books at, er friends. I'm a hack writer by night, game programmer by day, and caffeeine fuled editor when I'm not cursing the puter gods when another machine fails.
I'm always happy to help others out with anything (gotta get my dharma on) so feel free to add me. If I don't respond promply for some reason, assume my latest computer/phone has failed yet again and I'm waiting for parts to come through from China.

I will be happy to be friends with anyone who asks. Just be warned that I am only now starting to figure out what to do with this blasted social media thing, so I may not know all of the nettiquette and protocol that goes along with being a Goodreads friend. Or fiend. Dear god, this makes me sound way older than I am!
