This morning, while updating my library shelf on Goodreads via the iphone application I came across the coolest feature. A built in Scanner!!
Yup, next time your in the book store, just scan the book and TaaDaaa! The book magically appears on your Goodreads page.With the click of a button you can: add the book to your bookshelf, see reviews, author info, ratings, etc. Wow, what a time-saver. I think I'm in love!!
Ettore from the Goodreads blog says: The scanner is available in the iPhone app under My Books. After each scan you will see the book title and cover appear at the top of the screen: if you tap on that, you can quickly see reviews about the book you just scanned. Regardless, all your scans will be saved in a list that you can browse once you close the scanner. From there, you can add them to your shelves or simply read the reviews whenever you want. Post Link
**It works! It really, really works! Check out what I scanned!**
