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.

    Just great!

    crashes on startup
  • by Neil 5/29/2014
    Like many others said, this now crashes on startup. I suspect it has to do with the advertising.
  • by Drew 5/16/2014
    App continually crashes with most recent update.
  • by User 5/14/2014
    My notifications aren't updating, my books read goal isn't updating, and it keeps crashing. Would be a great app otherwise. Please fix!!!!

    This app used to be great but now crashes on 8.1. My reading is subject to change once the app is updated
