1a) I won't attend your event. They're starting to get annoying because it's always the same people. That's the reason why I defriend you. And why I'm not going to accept when you try to friend me again.
2) Requesting me as friend if your ratio of books to friends is less than 1. When you have 10 books in your bookshelf and have 200+ friends, I won't accept your friend request. I'm not being egotistically and self-mighty. I have learned from the past that when I did accept these friend requests, they end up spamming me with invites. I use Goodreads to share books and reviews. If I wanted to read your blog, I'll read your blog so stop sending me links every day when a new post pops up.
2a) In the past, I get about about ~10 requests per month. Now it's gone up to ~10 per week. I ignore about 70% of these requests because a) your ratio (see above) and b) we don't read the same books. The majority of my books are YA novels with some fictions and paranormal romances. Goodreads has a nifty little tool that let's me compare how many books we have in common in raw scores and percentages.
2b) You're just wasting your time and energy as well as mine.
3) Please, please if you're an author don't friend request me then spam me to read your book. I can find your book through your profile. I automatically look at your book when I friend an author. When the synopsis interests me, I'll mark it as to-read. Please don't try to "pitch" me your book through Goodreads.
4) Linking all your updates through twitter, facebook, every social networking site you're part of. When you're marking 20+ books as to-read, they ALL show on my twitter homepage. It gets annoying fast. I don't mind the status updates or when you post a review because I find them more relevant.
I love the new updates Goodreads has done like the 2011 Reading Challenge. I think it builds a good community for bibliophiles even if I don't have the time to participate. Also, I'm just really curious as to what other people are reading.
I just needed to get this off my chest and kill some time before my next class.
