Yay good idea! :)

Also could there be a list in this thread of FF members' Goodreads accounts? Rather than having to re-link or add someone every time thought it might be easier, or have it as a category on our profiles perhaps.

https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/51316057-kellie-ann  That should work.  I added @Arry already.  Not sure if we have anything in common, but it's a start.  Whoever wants to add me can.  I want to get more into reading so I can get better at writing.

I second this idea, but I imagine all it takes is someone going through this whole thread, gathering the names and links and throwing them into a list.  Takes time.  I like the category on profile idea.

I think rummaging up a list like the Birthday calendar might actually be a good idea, yeah.

I'm not very active anymore on there (seeing as I have little time to read anyway these days), but I'll happily accept requests! I'm buried somewhere in this thread.

OK, just accepted Lanko friendship in Goodreads.

Awesome work Lanko! :D

Why is there a question mark next to my name though? :P You got the right account. :)

This really worked great, my update feed only showed tons of people becoming friends.

Awww, so sweet. I'm feeling so good I spread love and friendship around! I should make a parallel service on Goodreads, something like GoodDates or Books & Wine.

I forgot to put this here: https://userstyles.org/styles/121888/goodreads-fix

After Goodreads upgraded their font/style last month, I started using this pretty much around the same time. It increases the size of the text and removes some blurriness in certain parts. Names and titles are much better with this (in my opinion).

Ah,  thanks! I've kind of adjusted to the new font, but it really is rather poor! Will look into this.
