I spend a lot of time browsing on Goodreads. I find it is a wonderful place to find my “next great read” by learning from others, reading reviews and looking at the bookshelves that individuals have created.
And now, just last week, they have added a new feature, further enhancing the browsing experience.
You can now PREVIEW any book that has a Kindle edition. Yay!
from the Goodreads blog:
Don’t judge a book by its cover…judge it by what’s inside with our new Preview feature, which launches today! With Preview, you can sample the story before committing to the whole book. Now our U.S. members can get a taste of their next amazing read right on the Goodreads website.
Just click on the book, and notice the PREVIEW button. Tap that button and a significant preview opens on your screen.
Since we have (for years) been able to preview Kindle books on Amazon, I would often go back and forth between Goodreads and Amazon. Happily this back-and-forthing is no longer necessary. I am delighted. 🙂
At the moment, this feature is only available in the US.
