Get a Goodreads Email Signature!
"When you broadcast your book reading voluntarily, it creates moments of fascinating serendipity."
Ever wish you could give more people—beyond just your friends on Goodreads—a glimpse of your favorite books so they can see what stories are currently making you laugh, cry, or bang your head in frustration?
For years, many Goodreads staff members have been doing just that by manually updating their email signatures to show the books they're currently reading. We wanted to showcase that sentiment and hopefully entice more people to come join us in the world's largest community of engaged readers. So, during a recent Hack Day, engineers at Goodreads took a stab at automating this process to make it into a simple, live-updating widget, and we loved the result. We thought that some of you might like to do the same thing, so today we're sharing our widget with you!
Now, any Goodreads member with a public profile can set their email signature to show the cover of the book they've marked as "currently reading."
People who receive your emails will always see the cover of the latest book you're reading, based on the book you most recently added to your Currently Reading shelf. You can find instructions to set up your email signature on your Edit profile page.
We love using this feature in the office to get a glimpse into what our coworkers are reading, and we hope this creates new moments of connection for you, too!
