June 14th: Do you make use of Goodreads recommendations?
If you mean the targeted recommendations that Goodreads puts on the sidebar (“Because you enjoyed…”) – then no. I don’t even pay attention to them.
If you mean, do I use Goodreads for recommendations – then yes! If I am not familiar with an author or series, I will read both the positive and negative reviews before making a decision to read or not read it. I also follow reviews from other bloggers and friends, and if I see something that looks good in my timeline, I’ll flag it for later. I also use GR when looking for books for my daughter to read.
