Goodreads Integration

Integrating Goodreads with Comity allows you to quickly and easily see your book lists in your news.

What is Goodreads?


Goodreads is a "social cataloging" website that allows individuals to freely search its database of books, annotations, and reviews. Users can sign up and register books to generate library catalogs and reading lists. They can also create their own groups of book suggestions, surveys, polls, blogs, and discussions.
