MUST HAVE app for book lovers!!
Really love this App! Great for anyone who loves books, loves to read and wants to share with every other book lover out there! You can go on and create a profile where you can go through and search all the books you have read, you can rate and review them. Then once you've rated a bunch the app will pick out recommended books based on books you've read and what genres you like. You can scroll through all day and add books to your want to read list! I can sit for hours looking through this app! Another great option I really like is the barcode scanner. You can go to a bookstore scan a book and it will pop up with its reviews and ratings and from there you can add it to your list or read through reviews and decide if you'd like to purchase it! It's great! I'd really recommend getting this app!!
This app is great. I really am exited to explore more books with this app. The only think I wish it had is a content filter.
Maybe it's too much to ask because not everyone needs it, but a lot of books being suggested to me have gruesome sexual violence, which I cannot endure even a sentence of without experiencing trauma related issues that can affect me heavily for sometimes even days. This is simply because there are a lot of books with sexual violence, and it is by no means Goodreads' fault, but I was hoping in the future there could be a way to filter certain types of explicit content out.
Still looking forward to using the app. For now I'll just be very cautious of the books I read.
Revolutionized my reading life
Now that you can search for friends by name, this app has earned the full 5 stars. You can use its capabilities as much or as little as you like, from just finding new books to meticulously updating what page you're on in every book you're currently reading. Goodreads has helped me to find so many new books to read, and its ability to sort books to read by author means I can just walk into the library and through the alphabetized fiction sections to find what I'm looking for. The only way it could be better is if it would integrate with local library catalogs to show you exactly which of your to read books are available. Great app!
