• Viewing an author

Viewing an author

When entering edit mode (upper right-hand corner), you will be able to remove the selected author from a book listed on its page.


Information requires an internet connection (either through Wi-FI, cellular, etc).

Author Information

This will display the author information available from Goodreads.  If you see the incorrect name displayed on this page, then Goodreads was unable to correctly associate the author.  Oftentimes middle initials will throw off Goodreads ability to associate the name with the correct entry.  After editing the name, leave the author page and re-enter to trigger another search.


Sharing requires an internet connection (either through Wi-FI, cellular, etc).


This option will provide you with a list of books written by the author you are viewing to send to an email address.



This option will allow you to share an author with the book crawler community and, optionally, other social networks.

A geo-location is provided with the community post.  You are able to adjust the location by moving the map.  By default, privacy is turned on.  This means that the geo-location will be randomized to within your settings under Community -> Profile.  The default setting is five miles.

The tag will control how information is posted.  A review tag will post the book as a "review" in Goodreads, other tags will post as a "status update" in Goodreads.  The reading tag will allow you to include your current page or the percent of the book that has been read.

You may optionally post the book to the other networks listed (Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, and Goodreads).

Press "Share" to share the book to all selected networks.


Facebook (available when Social Networks is ON)

This option will allow you to make a post to your facebook wall.


Twitter (available when Social Networks is ON)

This option will allow you to tweet this book to your twitter account.


All searches require an internet connection (either through Wi-FI, cellular, etc)
