Amazon buys Goodreads

From Salon (and old news I know):

On the Goodreads Facebook page, sentiment about the acquisition is running 10-to-one against it. Many members felt proprietary about the site and posted with surprising venom that they felt betrayed and were going to delete their accounts. A typical response: “You screwed us over. Take your money and run. You know the site you worked so hard on” will be corrupted by Amazon.”  More measured voices implored Goodreads “please don’t compromise the integrity of the best online community of book lovers.”
