Where do readers really get their books?

Otis Chandler, CEO of Goodreads reveals where readers really get their books!

Otis Chandler, CEO of Goodreads and descendant of the founder of the L.A. Times, gave a presentation at  the big Tools of Change (TOC) conference in NY.  I wish I had been there, but wasn’t.  I hadn’t even heard of it until the TOC was underway–that’s one more example of my doing everything backwards.

Anyway, I clicked through an online version of  Chandler’s Power Point presentation of research about book readers in the digital age.  That’s interesting.  That’s interesting.  Whoa–what’s this?  There it was: one slide that turned a lot of what is being touted about reading books upside down.  According to the research the Number One place readers get the books they read: their local Library!!  Not online.  Not from Amazon or Nook or Kobo.  Their local Library.  Fascinating what number reveal.

Goodreads, if you are not familiar with it, is an online bookstore/social community.  You can find it here: http://goodreads.com

And you can find my new e-novel, a sexy romance set in the 1960s, at http://amazon.com/dp/B00B3KDB7U
