Well, you're quite right. In terms of feeding the GoodReads algorithm for recommendations all they really need are the books I Liked, obviously, although I suppose it could help if they also knew the ones I'd already read, and the ones I Didn't like (for whatever reason).
But, I must say that it was kind of fun, as a one-time exercise to reflect back on everything I've read over my lifetime. As a memory test, if nothing else!
