Online retailer Amazon has said it will buy Goodreads, a book discovery and recommendation website.

San Francisco-based Goodreads was founded in 2007, has 16 million members and is one of the most prominent online communities for readers.

The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, and it is expected to be completed in the next quarter.Amazon Acquires Book Discovery Site, Goodreads [bbc.co.uk]

Does anyone know if Goodreads were using Amazon's affiliate programme? I'm wondering if Amazon saw that they were paying a lot of money and realised it would be a good fit.

At any rate, well done for Goodreads! :)
