GoodReads introduced a new feature this past April in North America and Australia that allowed people to sync all of their Amazon book purchased with their GoodReads account. This bulk import feature certainly makes life easier for those who want to have every book they have ever read or intend to read on their main public shelf. Today, Amazon Sync is now available to residents of the UK.
The ability to import your print and Kindle titles into your GoodReads shelf is officially in early access. The feature is not available to everyone yet, and you can access the import feature HERE.
The UK Amazon Kindle Store is not only used by residents of the United Kingdom, but also countries such as Ireland, Scotland or other commonwealth territories. The GoodReads syncing update is not country specific but works with all titles purchased from the main Amazon.co.uk website.
Amazon acquired the social book discovery website GoodReads last year. This gave Kindle owners the ability to join the 30 million users who use GoodReads to form virtual book clubs, talk about specific authors or even just showcase what they are currently reading. The Kindle Paperwhite first and second generation models recently got GoodReads integration in the main navigation bar, to make it ridiculously easy to join in on the fun.
