Amazon buys Goodreads

As relayed on MetaFilter:
The social book site Goodreads has been acquired by Amazon. Many members are upset and uncertain what this means for site which has relied on members to do the work of building and maintaining their database. Amazon already owns Shelfari and has a 40% stake in LibraryThing, two competing sites.
See the blurb for links to source articles, and commentary.
