We've all read the stories about Amazon buying Goodreads for their 16 million members, and that this site was the most successful online book community with 23 million reviews, 525 million books categories, and over 11 million monthly visitors. But have you ever considered exactly how large those figures are?The following infographic should help put it into perspective. eBookFriendly assembled this graphic last week, and it shows you just how much Goodreads has outgrown the competition.
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
