cestoryteller Presents: How to add your book to Goodreads

270 55 45

Greetings and welcome to my #WattpadBlockParty post. For those who don't know me, my name is Christian also known as @cestoryteller here on Wattpad. I'm a previously featured writer with stories that have won a few Wattpad contest/awards and are listed on reading lists of genre-specific pages. This is my first #WattpadBlockParty, and I'm thrilled to be here. Thank you KellyAnneBlount for the feature!

The average attention span is 10 to 15 minutes long so let's jump right in first by discussing what Goodreads is.

What is Goodreads?

Goodreads is a company founded by Amazon known for social cataloging. In short, Goodreads is the largest hub site for readers and book recommendations. Many use the site to discover new books and to keep track of the books they've read, are going to read or are in the process of reading.

Adding your book to Goodreads
