Goodreads Counts 900,000+ Reviews & 950,000+ Quotes Per Month

At Publishers Launch at the Frankfurt Book Fair this week, Goodreads founder Otis Chandler gave a presentation about growth at the social network for books. We’ve embedded the complete slide show above…

Among the different stats, Chandler noted that Goodreads now counts more than 900,000 book reviews and over 950,000 quotes from readers’ favorite books every month. Amazon acquired Goodreads earlier this year, integrating the network with a new app. Here are a few features:

With the new Goodreads integration on the new Kindle Fires unveiled by Amazon today, you will be able to: see what your Goodreads friends are reading, share highlights and notes as you read, track the books you read and want to read and build your shelves, read reviews from your friends and from the Goodreads community, rate and review books and import Amazon-purchased books to your Goodreads shelves.

Correction: A previous version of this post understated the frequency of these reviews.
