New android app for Goodreads

Posted on May 30th, 2011 in Books by Andy

Goodreads just announced an update to their app for the Android which now allows you to very easily add multiple books to your Goodreads account very quickly. There is a batch mode to auto shelve all of the books at once (for example own, read, fantasy) as they are uploaded in. It didn’t take me long to go through a sample of my books and quickly add several to my own,read shelves. The hardest bit for me will be remembering just how far through the Wheels Of Time series I got. I have most of the books but can’t remember the last book in the series I read.

Well worth the download – especially as it’s free. Add me to your friends list if you have an account. I can be found here on Goodreads

“I shall wear midnight” by Terry Pratchett coming soon.

Terry Pratchett’s new book is out (in London) on the 1st September. I’m not sure how long it will be before it arrives in the US but the good news is that there are only 11 people in front of me in the queue for the book from the Columbus Metropolitan Library which means it shouldn’t take long to get it. With the average Pratchett fan reading the book nonstop until they’ve finished – I expect to get it on the 3rd September 😉
