10 Steps to Make Goodreads Work For You

Are you guys doing much on Goodreads, the LARGEST book club in the world? You should!


I got on Goodreads a few years ago and that was it. I didn’t do anything after I created the profile and listed my books I had out at the time.


Nada, zip, zero, for TWO YEARS.


Remember how I said take on one social media at a time? I may have slacked off there for a while.


It is time for Goodreads. First, read the reblog below, and then tell us what YOU are doing on Goodreads to build your base and sell books.

So we will learn this one together!
