You never know what you’re going to find. Like this morning I found out how goodreads.com makes money. It’s actually something I’ve always been curious about. And, you get to see what Otis Chandler, founder of goodreads.com, looks like…the photo above is what was posted at the comment on Quora, so if it isn’t really Otis (you never know on the web), not my fault.

We are a media business, and make money primarily on advertising and affiliate revenue (a cut of book sales from major booksellers such as Amazon). We work with all major book publishers and many mid-majors to help them launch their books to our audience of book readers. We are really focused on the problem of helping authors http://www.goodreads.com/author/… connect to readers – which is super important, especially as self-publishing and the internet are stripping away tradition book filters and ways people find books.
