I haven't posted much here over the last few days, quite frankly I've been too busy checking out what everyone else is up to popping back and forth between here and GR, reading (yes I do occasionally slip that in there), started doing needlework again which is another love of mine it can be very relaxing and nurturing to the creative side in me and when time allows there are the demands of the real world.
I've also been doing a lot of thinking about what exactly is going on over at that other place, I've had no really profound thoughts or moments of enlightenment; so far from all I've seen and heard it's another case of the squeaky wheel gets the grease and somehow in all of this what GR has forgotten is that the people they are so blithely smacking on the wrist and sending to the corner for a time out are the reviews and the booklovers who read and read and read and when they run out of things to read they buy books...oopsie.
So what I find incredibly ironic about all this is that GR is busy worrying about keeping a few people happy who may or may not have been the manufacturers of their own misery and they are doing so at the expense of the consumer because that is what we are, those of us who read and/or review the books are the consumers. So possibly this is the point at which the parent needs to step in and teach the child a lesson and yes Amazon I am looking at you. You bought Goodreads you are now their parent company. It's ok to say you have a hands off approach but sometimes a good parent needs to help their child move in the right direction. That's my thoughts on all of this and I figured since we're all sharing I might as well put them out there for the universe to consider. Have a good weekend everyone.
