Use the Goodreads API to get the books on a shelf, get your friends' updates, link to a book by ISBN or other method, get the url for a book or author, get a members' friends, look up a member by email address, and get reviews by ISBN.
The Goodreads API allows developers access to Goodreads data in order to help websites or applications that deal with books be more personalized, social, and engaging. The API can be used in many ways, including:
Review Syndication: Goodreads has 10 million reviews across 700,000 titles. The API lets users display these reviews on their website.
Goodreads Connect: Members can connect to their Goodreads account, and developers have full access to the books, ratings, and reviews the member has in their shelves, as well as the member's friends. This can be used to personalize an ecommerce store, power recommendations, show a widget of a member's favorite books, build a mobile or desktop client app, and more.
The API uses RESTful calls and responses are formatted in XML.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at email@example.com
