I'm trying a giveaway through Goodreads, which I believe is where "avid" readers go to review books. Amazon is wonderful too, no doubt, but I think it's a little bit more for the casual reader...or even non-readers. My point is....with this giveaway, I hope to produce some great reviews, build a following, and more importantly--be added to readers "to-read" list. I'm told from a lot of Goodreads users that they add books to their to-read list even if they don't win the giveaway. And people that win the giveaway are strongly encouraged to write a review for the book, though it's not required.
So my question...has anyone had any success with this? Positives or negatives? Worth it, or am I just giving away books?
