Goodreaders is a social platform for discovering, sharing and reviewing books with other users.
If you're a dedicated book reader you've probably asked yourself "What book's next?". Reading a book is a big deal: it takes some time and your time is precious. What if you had a huge community of friends willing to recommend you some good books? That's what Goodreads is.
Actually, it offers both a web version and Android app. For searching books and see reviews you don't need to sign up. However, if you want to list your read/favorite books, review them, share and add reading friends, you must do it. You can find your address book contacts or Facebook friends on Goodreads.
The amount of books and authors is just impressive. Try it out. Besides reviewing, rating and sharing, you can see price comparisons. As a social network, you can add status updates and page number updates for books you're currently reading. You can use the scanner to quickly access book info.
Keep in mind that the best reviewer is the community.
Goodreads is a free service for everyone who reads. We have more than 8,500,000 members who have added more than 300,000,000 books.
* Search, rate, and review any book in our catalog of more than 12 million books.
* See book reviews and updates from your friends, and comment on them.
* Browse your shelves! Next time you are deciding what to read, your to-read list will be handy.
* Add status updates and page number updates for books you are currently reading.
* Use the barcode scanner to quickly scan all of your books onto your Goodreads shelves.
* Also use the scanner to quickly access book information while on the go.
* Find your address book contacts or Facebook friends on Goodreads
You can use the basic features of this app without a Goodreads account, but sign in or sign up (you can do this in the app) for the best experience!
Why does Goodreads need the READ_CONTACTS permission?
You may choose to use your Android Contacts to find which of your family and friends are already on Goodreads. Your contacts will not be read unless you explicitly choose to do this.

I love it.
Could use improvements especially in navigation. App does NOT let users access most full site features though this one gives more options, they are arbitrary ones. Entire app could use an over haul.
The app is really lacking. I prefer to just use the website.
Could you please add an option where we can erase the books that we no longer want to read? And I don't know why my profile states that I'm 53, when I'm not. Please make it so that we can edit it. Thank you.
Good for basic updating and adding books to your collection.
I like the application because it helps organize the books I'm reading as well as make top ratings and reviews and sharing those reviews with others. I have a blog that I used good reads with all the time. to read and share with others from good reads. It's convenient. Especially when you finish that book on public transportation. And don't have access to a computer.
