Stars are now in words


Latest update:
If marking books as re-read is important to you then you may want to update.

If (like me) you want to clearly see the ratings that your friends have given books then you will be disappointed as the stars are now in words and the book average is shown in stars (even in your friend's own bookshelf!) your feed shows your own stars (if you've rated the book) and the person whose comment you are reading has their rating in small letters (so no more skimming to read only 4 and up ratings - which seems to be the point).

Issues like long post threads being cut off have not been addressed, nor has the issue of the "show full review on feed" issue (a review is cut off but when you press show all it doesn't just pop the rest of the text open, it takes you into the review itself, wasting your time)

Speed issues haven't been addressed. Adverts continue to get more intrusive.

I would return to the original app version if I could which had more focus on groups (which are now very hard to get to with a tiny tiny button).

None of my needed changes (view all posts in long thread, link to book in comment, group bookshelf access) have been made.

Site overall: Makes finding your next book easy. I never buy a book without checking Goodreads first, although I use it much less now that they've wrecked the app.

Worth the download if you’re a serious reader


This app offers you all the new and upcoming books, along with the ability to track your reading progress throughout the year, add books to “want to read” lists, join groups for recommendations, reviews and ideas, and give you inspiration to read everyday.
Worth the download!

Great app, recommend to add a lent to and from feature


This is a great app to track and share books read, reading and want to read.
One improvement I suggest is to add a “lent to/ lent from” feature so you can track who (if you have added them as friends) you have lent books to or been lent a book from.
