Apparently “I” just sent email to 192 people inviting them to view my book recommendations on goodread.


I finally decided to join goodread, both to see what’s being said about my own books (what? you wouldn’t do that? really?) and maybe eventually to store book notes & recommendations. Or not.

As I read the description of the function, I thought it was using my Gmail contacts to build a set of “your friends recommends” items to me. I guess I needed to read it more carefully: It was actually sending out canned email to all of them. Which I would have never done if I realized what was happening.

Again, sorry.

    Hey it got my attention. You should consider setting yourself up as an author on Goodreads. It will up your profile too.

    I’ll probably do that. Not today, but soon. Thanks.

    Well, when you find your way around, I am in there. And second the idea of setting yourself up as author.

    Best, and keep on blogging.

    I was just approved as a Goodread author. Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll set things up as needed. Thanks for the nudges.
