Goodreads Across the Web

This week I released a Kynetx app I’ve been wanting to write for a long time: Goodreads Across the Web.

This app displays an “Add to Goodreads” button to book pages on Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble. It also displays the average user rating from Goodreads. Clicking on the link takes you the detail page on Goodreads for that particular edition of the book, so you can add it to your shelves.

I make use of the Goodreads API and a few simple Kynetx rules. For Barnes & Noble, I had to use dialoguing to get the ISBN, since they don’t put the ISBN in the URL like Amazon does.

You can get this app for the KBX here.

Are you a Goodreads user? What else do you want this app to do?
