I just got this email from Goodreads. It’s kind of sad that all the ads they show are unrelated to books. They have a hyper-targeted audience. Readers. And what do readers want!?

Is… that a cock ring?

I’d love to see Goodreads up their game, but they seem to be stuck. This email is a good example. They know what I like to read, and yet, they send me a bunch of books I have no interest in.

Fantasy and Science Fiction books were shoved to the bottom of the email, below the point where Gmail cut the email for being too long. You’d think the professionals at Goodreads would understand the limits of sending long emails and use a testing service.

If you are unhappy with Goodreads’ ancient system and incompetence, might I suggest checking out The StoryGraph?
