Goodreads lets users enter titles and genres of their favorite books, then offers recommendations.

The dilemma of choosing a book to read has become a worry of the past, thanks to the longtime reader favorite app Goodreads. The app allows users to enter titles and genres of their favorite books, then doles out recommendations for new reads. To paraphrase Ray Liotta in Goodfellas, "You're gonna like this book. It's all right. It's a Goodread."

Goodreads, whose recommendation engine analyzes 20 billion data points to give specifically designed suggestions, also allows users to see which books their friends are reading; track books they're currently reading, have read, and want to read; and peruse reviews from the app's community.

In March of last year Amazon acquired the app, and its functionality is now supported on Kindle, Kindle Fire tablets, and new and first-generation Kindle Paperwhite e-readers. In addition, users may now add prior Kindle purchases—both print and e-books—to their Goodreads account.

Users agree that Goodread is quite, well, good:
