Just received this news from Goodreads, unexpected to say the least. So apparently I'm a top, Top 1% on Goodreads, Top1000 on Amazon, Top100 on Lj...

On behalf of the Goodreads team, I want to say thank you. You’re in the top 1% of reviewers on Goodreads! Your many thoughtful book reviews help make us a vibrant place for book lovers.

And our community has been growing! We now number more than 20 million members on Goodreads.

Every day readers from all over the world are connecting over a love of books. And our 25 million reviews – including yours – are a big part of that conversation.

Thank you for your support of Goodreads, and keep reading! I’m looking forward to seeing what you think of your next book!

--Otis

Congratulations!

I just got the same e-mail. Could have knocked me over with a feather, I was so surprised! :)

I, too, got the same email, which was surprising. I do a lot of reviews, but not lately, and nothing near the volume you do.

My feeling is that not many bother to review the books

Thank you Kirby, I actually checked, I love these statistics, 1% on 20.000.000, means 200.000 people, BUT I'm actually 16 on the world list and 1 on the Italian one ;-) quite good, I have to say... considering I'm reviewing only LGBT and the list is global

thank you, I hope that is true, I'm reading a lot less these days, so being so high on the list was quite a surprise
