Can't imagine life without it now!!
As an avid reader, I am constantly keeping an eye out for new titles to read and new authors that grab my interest. Before Goodreads, I was seriously struggling to keep track of all this constant information. Every time I went anywhere--the bookstore, the library, Target, even social media--I was finding new books people were buzzing about. I couldn't keep it all organized. I had hand-written lists floating in my purse of book titles, endless lists on the Notes app of my phone, dozens of pictures of books I wanted to read in my Camera Roll... It was a mess. Enter Goodreads. Now I am able to keep track of every book that catches my eye instantly. I use the "scan" feature on the app religiously! No book I want to read escapes my notice now, and I know I won't lose track of it once I shelve it on Goodreads for a later date. My "want to read" shelf on Goodreads grows almost every day and I now have a huge repository of books I eventually want to read. It also lets me keep track of all the books I'm currently reading, and the page progress bar is a godsend when I inevitably lose a bookmark. I also love being able to see what books my friends are talking about! Can't praise Goodreads enough. So thankful for it - it's a life changer.
Goodreads is the only social network u need l
I love this app. It is completely essential to any book lover's app collection. It has introduced me to a whole world of books I would have otherwise not known about. It keeps me organized with the "Read" and "To Read" shelves, which you can further categorize into custom shelves! So nerdy! I no longer have the problem of hearing about a good book to read, writing it down on some anonymous scrap, then losing said scrap and forgetting the book. This keeps everything in one place and makes library trips super easy. If I could change anything about the app it would be to have further customization in the yearly reading goal. I read a lot of cookbooks and I just feel like that is cheating towards reaching my yearly goal, so being able to distinguish what type of books you would like to read in a year would be just that much NERDIER. Also, if they could somehow have integration with major library systems that would be AMAZING but that is a pipe dream, no doubt. Five stars either way.
I like this app for keeping track of my books, finding new ones, and categorizing what I've read. This app only shows up to 30 books on a currently reading list and if you've got more than that and the one you're looking to update isn't in the most recent 30, you have to remember the title or author to search within all your lists to find it. Of course that only seems to be a problem for people like me who regularly have up to 60 that I've checked out. I also wish that when you click on your reading challenge you could see past challenges and the list of books you read for them. Being able to list the books according to length is something the website does that the app cannot, on any list, by the way, and it's a pain not to be able to rearrange whatever list you're viewing by whatever parameters you want at the time. Connecting with friends, finding new books, and keeping track of the books in your lists is nice. Like the title says, I am mostly pleased with this app.
