Preview now available on Goodreads apps

Posted by Libby on January 13, 2016
Our popular Preview feature is now available in our Android and iOS apps! If you want to get a taste of a book before adding it to your To-Read shelf, you no longer need to be on a desktop or home computer. Now you can read sample pages wherever you are with the Goodreads apps.

Preview is simple to use. You’ll find the “Preview” icon on the book page of any of the millions of titles that have a Kindle edition. Tap on the icon and a sample of the book will open up within the Goodreads app.


If you like what you see, you can add the title to your To-Read shelf on Goodreads. And for our Android users, you can buy the full version of the ebook from Amazon or other popular retailers.


Preview is only available for members in the U.S., U.K., and Canada. (You can also access preview from the Goodreads website on your desktop or home computer if you are in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, or India. It is not yet accessible in other countries.)

Download or update the Goodreads iOS or Android app and check out the Preview feature. It's a great way to decide what to read next and get your 2016 Reading Challenge off to a strong start!

Happy Previewing!

Keile Haley In the past, I’ve drawn with just my fingers and I find that this tires me out much faster than when I use one of these types of products. Bow releases come in a plethora of designs and materials, so finding the Best Bow Release is going to be up to your own personal preference.
