    No longer works...

    This app worked well for the first few days. I can't remember if I had installed this before the 1.4.1 update for my Nook Color or after, but all I know is it no longer works. Launching the app shows the flash screen saying "goodreads" and then the screen slides away to the left and I'm left with an all-black screen. Even after waiting for a considerable amount of time, the app never gets past this point. If anyone ever reads these reviews, someone please fix this!

    Hey you guys...

    If you're having trouble with this app since the 1.4 update,delete it and reinstall. It's annoying to have to do that, but it worked for me.

    Great app

    This is a good way to keep track of the books I've read and the ones that I would like to read. The ranking of books also helps me remember whichnons I enjoyed enough to go beck and re-read.

    Eh.

    This is ok for updating reading statuses and having "to read" shelves to refer to when looking for the next thing you're gonna read on your Nook. The android app is soooooooo much better on a phone because you can wander stores, scan book barcodes, and add books to your to read lists in no time. Also check out the regular website.

    Beware,  Amazon is buying  Goodreads.  This community--which was awesome--is likely to become a function of Amazon/Kindl sales, not just a community of like minded people who want to discuss books.  I have closed my account and am deleting my app in protest.

    Cannot Scan Barcodes with Nook!

    I don't know why it's listing that you can scan barcodes and add books to your list. You can't scan anything with the Nook as there's no camera. They should at least remove that claim, even if it is a free app.

    I have been waiting for this!

    This is a fantastic app to keep track of the books you have read or want to read. Easy to search for books and it is social so you can get comments from friends and other readers. I love it!

    My Books not working

    This app is wonderful on my Android phone, but I am having the same problem as others with My Books just kicking me back to the home screen. I use My Books to decide what I want to purchase, and if this app is fixed on my Nook I will be more likely to buy my books through it.

    NookColor 1.4 Update Broke my App

    I purchased the GR app early on, and after ironing out a few wrinkles, it worked fine. I too wish it automatically kept track of my reading progress on Nook books.

    Now, after installing the most recent update for my NC, suddenly GR doesnn't wannt to open. What gives?!

    This is a great app!

    I am a bookworm and I love knowing a little bit about the book before i read it and this app helps me soooo much! If i don't know the title all i have to do is type the authors name...this really is a good app for bookworms.

    'My books' isn't working.

    Every time i select 'my books' it takes me back to my home screen and i have to start over. Very frustrating. This is my first experience with Good Reads and it isn't a very good one. Unfortunate because it seems like it has the potential to be a very useful app. Please fix this bug!

    Keeping track of those books is easy with Goodreads

    After picking up yet another interesting book and finding out later that it looked interesting because it was, the FIRST time I'd read it. I needed to keep track of whether or not I've read a book because I read a lot of books. Goodreads is the perfect app for this. It syncs with my Nook, my web account and my iPhone so I can have a record of what I've read and when. I can even use this app on my iPhone and scan in any book isbn to find it in the database instead of typing it in. Also a great place to keep a list of To-Read books for future reference. I use this every day, it is brilliant.

    Updated, now problems

    Updated and cannot update status (screen slides back to homepage), and cannot for the life of me find where to exit the new annoying suggested readings. It's awful.

    Not impressed

    I wish the app would take my current library and load it. I also wish it would take my wishlist and load that to the "to be read." Since I spend a lot of time on my wishlist, I really don't feel like doubling my effort. If there was the option to sync your device with the app I'd give 5 stars everyday of the week. Also, very basic interface...
