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.

    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.

    This is a great Goodreads app, marred by a rather distracting UI color scheme (I hate to use the word ugly, but if the shoe fits...). The multitude of colors used throughout the app detracts from an otherwise pleasant user experience, and does not mesh well with the overall feel of the modern design paradigm.

    On HTC 8x-it doesn't completely suck but I like epiphany much better

    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!!!!
