does posting on Goodreads constitute a conflict with Amazon's terms of service?

    Posting what on Goodreads, a sample? 

    As long as its less than 10%, it's fine  :D

    However, you may choose to make up to 10% of your book available on other sites as a sample, as well as continue to distribute your book in physical format (including print on demand books), or in any format other than digital. You may also provide professional reviewers with a copy of your book via email for the purpose of editing, proofreading and helping with other quality improvements. See the KDP Select Terms and Conditions for more information.

    Wow!  This is a 1600 word short story.  How do I do that?

    Hmm for a 1,600 word story, you'd only be able to post 160 words.  So it would really be a short sample, but with it in Select, that would be the limit you'd have to stay within.

    Sounds like I made a mistake putting my story in Select.

    What exactly did you want to post on Goodreads? The entire story? Or just add it to your account, which only needs a blurb? Because 10% is all that's allowed, as noted above. I guess that's the downside of very short stories. :(
