If your goal is to read more books, Goodreads will help track your progress, give personalised recommendations and keep you organised so there are no more excuses.
The app has everything but the actual pages of the books. Some 90 million members have added 2.6 billion titles to the Goodreads database; more than 90 million reviews and 20 billion data points power an advanced recommendations engine.
So, the more you use the app, the more likely you are to discover new books you’re bound to love. Start by rating a few books you’ve already read – the app needs at least 20 to get an understanding of your reading habits.
To find new books, browse by genre, curated lists or follow specific reviewers you’ve grown to trust.
Tap ‘Want to Read’ when you find something intriguing and it will be saved to your profile. Already have a library of physical books at home? The handy scan feature will help you import books from your shelves so you don’t have to search for each one.
Once you’re settled and you’ve found your next read, try a Reading Challenge and set yourself a goal of how many books you want to read this year. Then, if you’re socially minded, you can share and compare your progress with friends.
