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.

    This app looked so promising, but every time I try to actively use it my phone goes blank then restarts. Uninstalling.

    Excellent, has all the features I want and it is well designed. I liked I enough to purchase the pro version. Thanks!

    Love this app, especially the scan function

    The app works well, but I'm not a huge fan of the interface...it's a bit clunky to me. The interface is better than it used to be, but still not ideal. I do like it better than just using the goodreads mobile site, though.

    Great App!

    I really like this app, it's easy to use and well organized. The only thing I can't stand is the color scheme. The brick red tone is very unpleasant and not kind to the eyes.

    Like this app!

    Great Goodreads app. I actually prefer it to the official apps on other platforms. And it keeps improving with frequent updates. Requested feature: make currently-reading list more accessible, and sort it by recent date descending like the goodreads home page does.

    The reviewer who said this has a "beautiful UI" is either clueless or knows the developer. This app is clunky, annoying and unstable. It crashes all the time and very rarely actually does the things it's supposed to do. I've been using it for about a year because of a lack of Goodreads support in other apps. I finally got fed up and downloaded Epiphany instead. That app has a much more pleasant and usable UI and already works WAY better and faster than this app. I am uninstalling this as we speak.

    I really like this app. The most complete portal to goodreads in WP8. But the aesthetic hasn't changed in years, and it hangs up the phone. I'll check up on newer versions.
