I’ve long used goodreads.com to check out opinions on books. However, I only just joined the site: predominantly to discover new books, discuss books and connect with people who talk about books. There is one other benefit that I just noticed which could be very useful indeed,
Any author with a book listed in the Goodreads catalog has an author profile that lists all of the author’s published work, whether he or she is a member of Goodreads or not. When an author join the Author Program, we merge his or her user profile with their author profile. Becoming a Goodreads Author carries special privileges, such as the ability to edit profile information, add book cover images, post events, write a blog, upload videos, and start Author Q&A groups. link
