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.

Very poor app when compared to the mobile site. Works very slow.
It could use some serious updating.
Excellent application, certainly. Allows you to trace so easily books you have read as well as those you want to. Cheerio!
My reading list is getting long!
This is an amazing site and application. I've been using it for 3 years and can't get enough. I love the suggestions once you add books to read or that you have read, it suggests similar books and books of the same genre. Because of that, I've found well over 1000 books to read. It's going to keep me busy for a while.
