Today's guest is Manny Rayner.
How did you discover Goodreads?
My friend Jordan recommended it to me. She has a lot to answer for.
What have been your most memorable Goodreads experiences?
The Celebrity Death Match Tournament.
Name one reviewer not in the Forbes 25 that people should be aware of.
What was your initial reaction to Amazon buying Goodreads?
Unhappy, but it was inevitable.
How many books do you own?
As many as our apartment will hold - lost count.
Who is your favorite author?
Tie between Gustave Flaubert, Anthony Powell and E. Nesbit
What is your favorite book of all time?
Tie between Madame Bovary, A Dance to the Music of Time and The Enchanted Castle
What are your thoughts on ebooks?
A necessary evil.
What are your thoughts on self-publishing?
People should buy more copies of What Pooh Might Have Said to Dante! It's better than the books I've published through so-called "real" publishers.
Any literary aspirations?
Another review collection coming out soon, a serious book hopefully sometime next year.
Stop the presses!
