History EditThe company was founded January 30 2009 in Noble City , Lovia by the popular fantasy writer William Goodwin, as Goodread Publishings. The name was a playful combination of William's last name and the English expression a good read. William was planning on internationalizing the company but would never see those plans come to fruition due to his sudden passing away. On May 21 2009 William's proud and driven son David Goodwin officially took control of the company. In honour of his father he changed the logo:
- Goodread became Goodwin
- the icon was changed from a book into a dragon, a symbol of fantasy, the genre William so dearly loved.
David, bilingual, kept the slogan 'A Guaranteed Good Read', but also came up with a Dutch alternative: 'Lezen is leuk' ('reading is fun').
