Children by the millions sing

Today is laundry and writing day.

I still don't understand Goodreads.

Here are all the books I have read. Here are all the books I want to read. I know both pieces of this information. 

Yeah, but here are books recommended based on the books you have read/want to read. 

So, you're like a very specific Amazon? 

Not exactly. Here are books your friends have read.

Yes, I have actual human interactions with them about things like books. 

Do you really? When was the last time you talked to that person you've only ever talked to on Facebook? Did you even know she liked Mein Kampf? 

No. And I don't really care. 

And The Camp of the Saints.

Well... Umm... 

So, as far as I can tell, Goodreads is ruining perfectly good, superficial relationships.

Titty sprinkles!
