Goodreads has opted all members into receiving book deals emails from Amazon (plus others)

Reblogged from Debbie's Spurts:

Well, at least for books on your " to read" shelf.  You can opt out and you can select which retailers.  "Opt out" versus "opt-in" -- even for features I really want -- always offends me.  Feel free to reblog.


See the announcement thread in a group less than 5% of goodreads members belong to for directions on opting out or customizing: 


I suppose it could be worse (for example if only listing Amazon deals) but cynical me thinks it's a way for Amazon to send countdown deals and other promotions for authors out to goodreads members.
