How do I add friends?

Adding friends is easy. If you already have the profile link for someone you'd like to friend, just navigate to his/her profile, then click "add as a friend" beneath the "about me" section.

If you want to find friends on Goodreads and you don't have profile links, just click on the friends icon in the header, which is located directly to the left of your profile image. Then select the "add friends" tab.

On this page you have several options to add friends:

  • use your Yahoo!, Hotmail, or Gmail address books to invite friends and see which friends are already Goodreads members
  • invite friends by copy/pasting the message from the box and sending it to your friends using email
  • search for friends already on the site using the 'find friends' box
