Síntesis: Amazon, the online retail behemoth that has made a much-publicized foray into publishing, has just bought Goodreads, the social book-recommendation site.
“Amazon and Goodreads share a passion for reinventing reading,” Russ Grandinetti, Amazon vice president for Kindle Content, said in a statement on Thursday. “Goodreads has helped change how we discover and discuss books and, with Kindle, Amazon has helped expand reading around the world.”
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. The statement said the deal would close in the second quarter of 2013.
