Goodreads is a virtual book directory and recommendations platform for Android mobile devices. This app offers personalized shelves of titles you want to read, already finished or may fancy.
Books you like
At the start of the app, users can select their favorite genres, including biography, fantasy, horror, mystery and comedy. Other categories include business, children, cookbooks, graphic novels, thrillers and science fiction.
Additionally, you may rate the most notable titles from the books you have already read. It is possible to skip this step altogether or return to it later. However, the more ratings users give, the more suitable recommendations they can get.
In other words, there is a possibility to revise all you ever read and create a personal library online. The utility offers a custom list of books tailored to your tastes. You may order almost any suggestion from Amazon Shopping with a direct link in the app.
Moreover, it is possible to explore new titles and genres in the discovery area. If you are in a bookstore, this application can be useful as well. The scanning on the go option is available. You may check ratings and reviews after a quick snap of the cover.
