Hi, I do not believe we can create an API call that maps user IDs to email addresses. That would expose all user email addresses to anyone with a developer key and would create the risk of gross privacy violations.

If you need to map a user ID in your app to a Goodreads user ID, you simply associate their user ID with their user ID on your side right after performing OAuth on behalf of the user. Presumably, you already have their email address, right?

If this is not the case, could you explain more what you are trying to achieve?
