In May, I wrote a post about the BookCrawler App and received some questions from colleagues about whether or not it "talked" to Goodreads. Yes, the two apps do "talk" to one another without having to load books you have read or want to read into both apps. If you have the Book Crawler app, just click on the tab labeled "Community" and click on the green icon on the top of the screen. Then you will be given the option to sync it to your Goodreads account. You will be able to either download your books from Goodreads to Book Crawler or vice versa.
If you have a Goodreads account already to log your books read and create lists of book you want to read, definitely download the free Goodreads app for your iPad/iPhone. If you don't have a Goodreads account, I highly recommend that you create one as soon as you can because it is so helpful and all free.
This upcoming school year, I would love to find a way to have students log their own reading in a similar way to Goodreads. To create a Goodreads account, you need to have an email account, so this makes it tricky because it wouldn't be a viable option for all students. If anyone has used Goodreads or something similar online, as a way to have kids keep purposeful logs of their reading lives, I'd love to hear how you used it!
Happy Reading! :)
