Goodreads on your NOOK ColorPosted by Kyusik Chung on April 25, 2011
We're thrilled to announce that the Goodreads app is available for free on your NOOK Color. Our app makes the NOOK Color the most social ereader available! We love making Goodreads portable and accessible, because it is our core belief that a book comes alive when its ideas can be shared. (Also, try out our iPhone app, and an Android app is coming soon.)
The newly launched NOOK app store is part of a major update to the NOOK Color. It carries free apps like Goodreads and other apps for purchase. You can read more from Barnes & Noble about the update here and here.
When Barnes & Noble approached us about building a Goodreads app for the NOOK, we were flattered to learn that Goodreads was one of the more requested apps by NOOK owners. So, we put our noses to the grindstone to make sure we had an app ready for the launch of the store.
With this first version of the Goodreads app for NOOK, you can:
- Check updates from your friends and those you follow
- Manage your bookshelves
- Rate and review books you've read
- Read reviews from friends and the Goodreads community
- View author profiles
- Search for books
We're excited that we're not the only fans of the Goodreads app on NOOK. Aside from the enthusiastic team at Barnes & Noble, James Patterson gave us a thumbs up:
I've always been a fan of Goodreads, and how you can browse your friends' bookshelves. It's exciting to watch the NOOK Color grow from a great place to read into this new idea, which is almost like social reading. My fans can see I'm reading everything from Laura Hillenbrand's Unbroken to those Alex Rider kids' books — I like a wide range.
If you own a NOOK Color, we hope that you check out the Goodreads app.
Tell us what you think – please rate and review the app!
Also, don't forget to indicate that you own a NOOK Color (make sure you're logged in, then click on the "own reader" link).
And if you're trying to figure out which ereader to purchase, we think the NOOK Color just earned itself another big selling point.
