“People read along, and then--for as long as there’ve been books--after you’re done reading, you you go talk about the ideas, the stories, the concepts that you read about. That’s actually a good metaphor for Goodreads and Kindle. Kindle is where you read alone. Goodreads is where you go talk about what you read.”
