Its not till recently where I'm starting to get a problem. My e-mail is getting a thousand e-mails with a notice that yet another person has requested to be a friend of mine on Goodreads. I have no problem getting friend requests, but its gotten to the point where its too much. A lot of the people have no common reading interests as me. I prefer to accept and request those that have the same reading interests as me. I don't mean to be descriminate but I just like seeing updates in my update feed containing books I would read. Not books that I have no interest reading. Plus there are the people who like to treat Goodreads like Facebook or Myspace.
I want to narrow the amount of friend requests I get, but at the same time I don't want to offend anyone. What should I do? How do you (If you are on Goodreads) handle friend requests? What are your reasons for having a Goodreads account?
