Book Readers, Let’s Celebrate!

In FAQ on 21/10/2010 at 19:02

Indonesia has several book events in every year, including Pesta Buku and Indonesia Book Fair. However, these events do not involve book readers as much as they do to publishers, authors, and book stores. Organizers of these events give lack of opportunities for book readers, particularly book readers’ community, to join the “celebration”.  For them, it is enough to give cheaper price for books that are sold during the events or to hold book launches to book readers.

The fact is these events do not enable book readers to interact to each other, or to authors or publishers. Book readers are longing for this room, in order to switch their function into the “agent of change” to attract more people to love reading .

For that reason, Goodreads Indonesia has initiated the Indonesia Readers Festival 2010. This festival is the “interaction room” for book readers, where they can celebrate their joy of reading books. Goodreads Indonesia also attempts to make this event to be the summit of all activities, related to book publishing and book reading.

Goodreads (http://www.goodreads.com/) is a social network for book readers in the world. This site enables people to see “bookshelves” that belong to their friends, including their “[have] read”, “currently reading”, and “to-read” list.

This site has been developed by Otis Chandler since 2006. More than 2 million readers in the world join this site and they have listed more than 40 million titles of books to Goodreads’ database.

Members of Goodreads from Indonesia then set up a group, titled Goodreads Indonesia on 7 June 2007. In last three years, this group approximately has 3,700 members, and they have listed at least 8,700 books, that are written on Bahasa Indonesia. In October 2010, members of Goodreads Indonesia have increased up to 4,200 readers and more than 9,000 titles of books have been listed.

As a community, Goodreads Indonesia always tried to take part in book publishing society in Indonesia, by initiating many activities, both on the internet and in the real world.

All of these activities are aimed to allow readers to have dialogue with authors, publishers, and all elements of book publishing society.
