Goodreads Now Lets Users Add Books Purchased from Amazon to Goodreads Shelves

About 54 weeks ago acquired Goodreads.

Here’s a new example of a feature that Amazon is adding to Goodreads. Makes sense. Smart. Easy.

From the Goodreads Blog:

Today, we’re starting to roll out an Add Your Amazon Books feature! You can now add books you’ve purchased on Amazon – both print and Kindle books – to your Goodreads shelves. ***This will be available in the next few weeks to members in the U.S., Canada, and Australia.


How do you know if you have the feature? You’ll see the Add Amazon Book Purchases link in the Tools list on the left hand side of the My Books page (and a small announcement at the top of the page). Click on either link and you’ll be asked to sign in to your Amazon account. You’ll then see your Amazon book purchases. You can go through and rate each book and select the appropriate shelf for it.
