What is Goodreads?

The goal of Goodreads is to find good reads, those books that leave you satisfied and/or wanting more. It is also about avoiding bad reads, which are books that aren't worth the paper they are printed on.

As a book-lovers social network, Goodreads allows you to build a list of books, rate and review those books, and find out what your friends are reading.

Founded in 2006, Goodreads is one of the most popular book-based social networks.

Why Should I Use Goodreads?

Authors, writers and book lovers will enjoy belonging to this social network devoted to the art of reading. Goodreads lets you share books with friends, find out more information about a book or author, and connect with people who have similar interests.
