Goodreads on Kindle

Connect to the world's largest community of readers with Goodreads on Kindle, where you
can find book recommendations, keep track of what you've read and want to read, and see

what your friends are reading. Tap the Goodreads button on the toolbar to get started.
You will be prompted to sign in to Goodreads or create a new account if you did not do so
when setting up your Kindle.

When you log in with an existing Goodreads account, your account data will sync with your
Kindle, including your friend list and your Want to Read, Currently Reading and Read

When you create a new account, you will have the opportunity to add Facebook friends and
choose Readers to Follow. If you connect using your Facebook account, any Facebook
friends who are also on Goodreads will be added to your Goodreads friend list
automatically. The more friends and readers you follow, the more book recommendations
you will see in your Updates.

Keep track of what you're reading by adding books to your Goodreads shelves. When setting
up your account, you will be directed to a list of your Amazon book purchases, both digital
and physical. You can rate books you've read from one to five stars. Rating a book adds it to
your Read shelf. You can also tap the Shelf icon

to shelve the book as Currently Reading

or Want to Read. Shelved and rated books are publicly visible on your Goodreads profile.
