Dheeru | 1 comments Hi,
I am trying to use search.books method. I noticed that the URL to the profile page of a book is not in the response and we have to use book.show method additionally to get it. Profile page URL is very important basic information as we can use it to provide a backlink to good reads allowing users to follow it for more indepth information. I think you should include it as part of search.books response itself. Would this be possible? Also, same with genre too.

Thanks.

Michael Economy (michaeleconomy) You can build these urls yourself:

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/ID...

genre urls are:

http://www.goodreads.com/genre/GENRE_...


I supposed we could add those, but a lot of other developers want us to keep those responses light for mobile devices.
