The Tipping Point

I just finished reading the Tipping Point and started thinking.

I realized that a site like Good Reads, is a place for "mavens", people who love books come there and tell others what books they should read. The whole publishing industry should pay for this site and encourage these mavens to flock there and give their opinions.
It also made me realize that Good Reads needs more work on developing their network. Make it easier to find others that have the same interests as you do.

Also from my work on orkut I realize that competition is very powerful. You see that your friends have 300 'friends' and you feel inadequate, and work to build up your list of friends. The same could happen to books, you see someone with 100 books that they have reviewed and you start wondering what's wrong with you. You start buying, and reading more books - and giving opinions about these books.
