Social Reads, your reading partner!

Please send me an email with your problems rather than just exposing them in the reviews section, so I could figure out the source of the problem and fix it.

Social Reads is a GoodReads client for Windows Phone. (It is not an e-book reader). It features a very user-friendly UI so you can explore your books and edit your book shelves.
You can also browse GoodReads for books, read reviews and get ratings.
Social Reads also allows you to scan books by ISBN, so you can add them to your virtual shelves effortlessly!!
With Bing integration: when you find a book under 'products' in Bing Search, navigating to 'apps' allows you to look up Social Reads for this book.

    Always crashes. This used to be good, but then it got updated and became unstable. Fix it!

    I was so happy to find a Goodreads app for my new Nokia phone. I just installed it and it's easy to use and has a lot of great features. I was really happy to see that it has a scanner function so I can continue to inventory my books. The only problem I'm having is with a very small book club that I moderate. We had it set to Secret and I couldn't open my group page at all in this app. I changed it to Private, and now I can open the group, but nothing really shows up. We are not willing to make our small book club open to the public so maybe you can take a look at book club settings info. My other book clubs that are public work great and actually have more functionality than my old "official" GR iPhone app. Thanks for creating such a useful app!

    Should be 0 stars. Just stop working on 920. It was really good.

    Después de la actualización no pude ver las actualizaciones en mis grupos, solo aparecían las notificaciones pero nada se cargaba

    The app is okay. I hate that when you get a toast notification through the app that no notification shows up on the actual site. It could use a more feature filled app as sometimes certain functions require the browser to open.

    Excellent

    Worthless. Can't figure out how to add books, and the ISBN scanner doesn't work at all.
