Goodreads Friends Limit

Goodreads keeps deleting my friends. Ever since they instituted the 5,000 friend limit, it’s been a personal gripe of mine. Other authors definitely feel the same. Just look at Neil Gaiman who lost over 4,000 friends on Goodreads when they lowered his friend count from 9,000 to 5,000.

The thing is, I keep getting new friend requests every day, particularly from the cool folks I meet on Twitter who also want to stay connected on Goodreads. However, if and when I add them, one of my other friends gets randomly removed about a week or so later. Blah.

Anybody else having this issue? Any workarounds that you have discovered? Don’t get me wrong, I love using Goodreads, but man I really wish they would change this particular friend requirement.
