Goodreads (http://www.goodreads.com) is a social networking site for readers across the world, which enables the users to see inside their friend’s bookracks, such as: books which have been read, book which is currently read, and book which is to be read. This site was established in the late 2006 by Otis Chandler and has invited more than 2,000,000 readers across the world to join and entered at least 40,000,000 books in the Goodreads’ database.
Reader from Indonesia who have joined Goodreads is Femmy Syahrani, a writer and translator, who created the group Goodreads Indonesia (GRI) on 7 June 2007. On its third anniversary, 3,700 readers from Indonesia had joined and more than 8,700 books in Indonesian were uploaded to Goodreads’ database. In mid February 2014, the number of the members increased again, reaching 11,000 readers, and the number of the books in Indonesian was recorded at more than 20,000 books.
