SCBWI's Blueboard - A Message & Chat Board

Amazon purchasing Goodreads

Discussion started on

Hey guys. I wanted to see if anyone could confirm that Amazon has purchased Goodreads. I'm feeling skeptical of anything that I read on April 1st, but stories seem to still be coming out. What do you guys think about that? While I'm generally reluctant to buy into the evil corporate empire thing, it seems like Amazon is starting to control so much of the book world these days.
