If you're a voracious reader (as many of us here at AP are), then you're probably familiar with Goodreads, which is an Amazon-owned and Kindle-integrated platform for tracking books you've read and discovering new ones.

Sections SEARCH Skip to content Skip to site index Style Subscribe Log In Subscribe Log In Advertisement Supported by Homecoming videos, GoFundMe campaigns, “This Is Us” tweets — the internet wants not just your eyeballs, but your tears. ByKatherine Rosman May 17, 2018 I cry. I am a crier. Crying releases the anger and frustration. Crying gets the sad out, and it humbles me in a good way.
