GoodReads.com and Bookpedia

Postby Kernos » Mon Jan 11, 2010 9:35 am

I would love for Bookpedia to be able to suck data from http://goodreads.com.

This links to their API: http://www.goodreads.com/api

Thanks for the links. We'll take a look at the API.

I'll happily second this request! Especially if it might mean moving away from some of the dependence upon Amazon and bringing Pocketpedia back to life (again...sigh)!

Any news about this suggestion? It would be a major advantage for Bookpedia, as Amazon lacks a lot of data included in Goodreads records.

I have written to them asking for permission (required for a commercial product) and are waiting to see if we can include it in a future Bookpedia version.

Unfortunately no, but now that you bring it up I shall send them another email.

Bump! I'd love to be able to use Bookpedia to catalog and Goodreads to sort online.

We've talked to GoodReads about an integration but their API model doesn't really work with Bookpedia since it includes a revenue share and there is no way for us to know how many users are actually going to use the GoodReads plug-in.
