Goodreads

Amazon

Once you get your book up on Amazon KDP, B&N, Kobo, and/or other sides, you'll want to make sure it's listed on Goodreads. If you publish on KDP, it should automatically transfer, but you can help the process along and/or keep the info on the site up to date. You can also run ads and/or giveaways on the site.
