kris’ good reads expedition: diary entry 3

Nothing says ‘let’s be Good Reads friends’ quite like sending links to gay porn in an attempt at blatant bribery. *God love redheaded-Cali-butt&book-girls.*

Other than that can someone please explain to me if there is any sort of etiquette involved in friending people at Good Reads or any other site cos I live in rabid fear of offending someone.

About Kris

Reads, rants, randoms & R+s. You've been warned. BTW, don't follow me if you're a GLBTQQphobic wanker. It won't end well. For you.

  1. Tracy says:

    Hey – Do I know how to earn friends and influence people or what? (Probably or what, but let's not go there.)

    Etiquette? Hmmmm….if it's someone I know from the blogs I go to then I friend them…or an author. If I don't know you then I really have to check out what you read first.

  2. nichem says:

    If there is some etiquette, I totally broke it when I joined by sending friend requests to people I didn't know but whose reviews I enjoyed. I think they all accepted and not one sent me a “Who the fuck are you” response. πŸ˜›

  3. Tam says:

    Damn you and Ingrid. Now I'm in there and I have no clue how it works? What the hell is this shelf thing? I have two books. Whoopdeedoo. I befriended a bunch of people, well, I tried, maybe they'll reject me, this will send me spiraling into a massive depression, I'll have to be hospitalized and fed my m/m intravenously and it will all be your fault. Waaaahhh.

  4. flash your boobies. You will make many friends then.

    Or befriend people you know or who has the same books likes as you do.

  5. Kassa says:

    I got a request from Jen but didn't know what to do, figuring I didnt want to do good reads but what if I said no?! So I deleted it and now sweat it out for when she realizes.

  6. Merwan says:

    I haven't friended anyone yet. To be frank, I didn't really see the point, but now I'm thinking it might be a good way to find new books to read.

  7. Tracy says:

    Tam – no worries – I befriended you. I just hit approve. (see Kris, how easy that is?)

  8. Tracy says:

    Merwan – I think for me having the friends is good because I can see their rating on books (if they've posted it).

  9. K. Z. Snow says:

    I don't need any friends, but I'd like some links to gay porn nonetheless.

  10. Kris says:

    Tracy: T'was a good bribe indeed. πŸ˜‰ So if it's someone I don't know I should check them out first. Okey-dokey.

    I'm not sure how I feel about friending authors tho. What if I say their book sucked?? Than poo will ensue.

    Richelle: *snort* No, but they were prob'ly thinking it. Where are you hiding on good reads btw. I must try and hunt you down and stake, umm, I mean friend you.

    Tam: Lemmings. We are all lemmings. 😦

  11. Kris says:

    KB: My boobies hide behind an ugly, super support bra so there will be no flashing involved.

    That reminds me. I must annoy/friend you too, lovie. Can't let King Mho think I don't love him. πŸ˜‰

    Kassa: Well' I'm glad you're keeping it to yourself then, mate, cos God forbid that JEN will find out about it.

    Merwan: I'm finding the 'to read' shelves of some of the people whose blogs etc I follow really interesting as well as the recent stuff they've read. Gives me some ideas about what's out there at the moment.

  12. Kris says:

    Tracy: Yeah, but then I wouldn't have got smexy piccies of Travis Flimmel and porn. See how this works for me.

    KZ: No friends, no porn. That's the deal.

  13. nichem says:

    Just sent you a friend request– should I be scared? And do I get porn, or do I have to send you porn now? I think I should get porn. πŸ™‚

    I was worried about the whole friending authors thing too– that's why I only friended Rick Reed and Josh 'cause I was pretty sure I wouldn't think their books were poo. There is always the option of following an author without friending them.

  14. Lily says:

    Darn it!! I accepted your friend request before requesting porn 😦

    I started with a friend request I received thru the Torquere Yahoo group and from there I've added friends from blogs and LJ. As I interact with them I've found others with similar taste that are their friends and either they send request or I've sent it.

    It's a friend of a friend is now my friend πŸ˜‰

    *Do I still get some porn?*

  15. I went to go find you, but do you know how many Kris's are out there? LOL!

    I'm bridgetlocke…come find me! πŸ™‚

    And Good Reads is easy…once you figure out what you're doing. πŸ˜€

  16. Kris says:

    Richelle: Let me get this straight… you think you should be rewarded for conning me?? O_o

    I think I would still be worried about offending them in case I say one of their friend's books suck. Hmm, I think I'll give it a miss for now.

    Lily: The Good Reads version of a friend of my enemy is also my friend. Cool. LOL.

    Do you get porn?? I'll think about it.

  17. Kris says:

    Bridget: Found you! πŸ™‚

    Easy?? The jury's still out on that one.

  18. Tracy says:

    See how popular the gay porn is? Like bees to honey. πŸ™‚

    Oh NOW YOU'RE friending people. Dear God, we've created a monster.

    KZ – I'll hook you up baby. πŸ™‚

  19. Kris says:

    Perves the lot of us! LOL.

    “Oh NOW YOU'RE friending people. Dear God, we've created a monster.”


  20. orannia says:

    Tam – you got dragged in too? LOL!

    …fed my m/m intravenously…

    The mind bogggles!

    Kris/KB! I adore the King Mho Fho t-shirt!

    Oh, and Kris…my library has ordered Cast in Silence *happy dance*

  21. Kris says:

    Orannia: Not only Tam, but Ingrid AND Jen too. LOL.

    “Kris/KB! I adore the King Mho Fho t-shirt!”


    “Oh, and Kris…my library has ordered Cast in Silence *happy dance*”


  22. Jenre says:

    Kassa: Was that me? or JenMcJ or JenB? Too many Jens.

    I could have sworn I skipped the bit where it said to invite the people you know who aren't on Goodreads.

    Sorry if I didn't. There's nothing worse than the 'oh no is this person going to be mightily offended if I don't join?'.

    I spent hours last night on this. Hours.

    I'm totally blaming Ingrid who invited me. And Tam.

    And you Kris for doing these bloody posts and enticing into the dark side.

    And where's my porn eh?

  23. Kris says:

    Moi? It's Richelle's fault I tell you!

  24. jitterbug says:

    *I will NOT join Good Reads, I will NOT join Good Reads, I will NOT…*

    What's the bait again? Porn's links? Mmmhhh… πŸ˜›

  25. Ingrid says:

    I have nothing to do with it.

    Kris you know it is actually allowed to stalk an author?? It says ” follow”.
    You should be happy.

    Got confused by the many Jens too. Luckily for me Jenre has a avatar that I know.

  26. Kris says:

    Sara: Soon you too shall succumb to Good Reads. It is highly contagious… like Swine Flu.

    BTW, Tracy holds the keys to the gay porn. I am merely the gatekeeper.

    Ingrid: Good point. I might have to rethink my position.

  27. Sarah says:

    Please to be sending the porn naooow!!

  28. Kris says:

    I dunno. *suspicious* Are you gonna be our friend or wot???

  29. Tam says:

    I didn't get any porn links yet. *pout* Added a bazillion books and nuthin to show for it. Humph.

  30. If I befriend you Kris, I get some pron? Ohh what a wonderful day!

  31. Kris says:

    Youse are both shameless!

  32. Tracy says:

    I'll send links if you're all very nice to me. πŸ™‚ lol

    (wow this is fun Kris!)

  33. nichem says:

    Heh, it was worth a try.

    Actually, seeing the number of books you have listed, I prolly should send you porn. Except I have no porn on my computer to share 'cause I have to share the computer with my kids. So sad for me.

  34. Tam says:

    You're so pretty Tracy. And smart too. *bats eyelashes* (Will that work? LOL)

  35. Tracy says:

    *snort* that was funny Tam! lol

  36. Ingrid says:

    Question is of course Tracy. Did it work? *g*

  37. Tam says:

    Ingrid: It did. πŸ˜€

    Here's a cookie for y'all. It's not quite porn but he struck me as extra pretty.

  38. Ingrid says:

    You don't see those walking around here πŸ˜€

  39. Lily says:


    Thanks, how did you know I was hungry? Yummy cookie πŸ˜‰

  40. Tracy says:

    Oooooh my own little chieftan cookie. Nom, nom.

  41. Kris says:

    Tracy: “wow this is fun Kris!”

    Nothing like a little blackmail porn to make you feel good. πŸ˜‰

  42. You ladies are naughty. πŸ™‚

    Pretty picture, but he's almost too pretty. I like my guys to look…guy-like? πŸ˜€ Is that even a word? LOL!

  43. Kris says:

    THEY are. Not me tho.

    When I saw that piccie I was expecting the cop, cowboy, construction worker and bikie to be turning up around the corner. Most disappointing.

  44. orannia says:

    Not only Tam, but Ingrid AND Jen too. LOL.

    And now I know why *grin* Tam – I love the cookie πŸ™‚
