A couple of years ago a friend invited me to join Goodreads where one benefits from recommendations of good books to read and can recommend one’s favorites to others. They claim a readership or membership of 3,200,000. However I didn’t join, because I’ve got too much waiting to be read all the time. I was reminded of the venture this morning, when the Google Alert for “The Origin, Persistence and Failings of HIV/AIDS Theory” told me that a review had just been posted at Goodreads. Such out-of-the-blue kudos, like the favorable ones on amazon.com from people I don’t know, are very gratifying.
