Ratings and Reviews
Healthiest App on My Phone
I think the best thing about this great app are the reviews. They get voted up by people who agree with them so the creme rises to the top.
I don’t find book reviews in the media very reliable at all. They most often are positive and I’ve bought way too many books with compelling subject matter but that I couldn’t finish because the writing just wasn’t exciting enough to keep me engaged. Also you can write your own reviews.
It’s cool to see what my fiends are reading too, how they rate the books - and you can recommend books to them by direct message.
But the other top thing about the app is FINALLY I have a place to chart all the books I’m thinking of reading. Not only that but you can save them as well as read books in “bookshelves’ - so by the category of your choice.
Now a new terrific thing I discovered - the Goodreads top 10 books of any given year is a reliable place to find strong writers. I just devoured 2 from the list.
It has got me reading again and I am really enjoying it!!!
I have been a Goodreads participant for a few years now, and I LOVE it! I never buy a book anymore without checking the ratings on Goodreads. It’s a great place to keep track of the books you’ve read and the app is excellent! My only disappointment is the fact that I can’t give half star ratings!
App heats up phone
I love goodreads ( the web version) and the iPhone app is great except every single time I have it on, my phone heats up and feels like it’s about to explode. Maybe there is a memory leak somewhere or it’s using wayyy more cpu than it needs to, I don’t know, but please fix!!
