Goodreads Widget

The Goodreads Widget allows you to feature some of the books you’ve listed in one of your widget areas.

Goodreads provides a service that allows you to share your reading lists with friends. To activate the Goodreads Widget, you need to switch on Make extra widgets available for use on your site…. You can find this setting in your WP Admin by navigating to Jetpack > Settings, clicking the Writing tab, and scrolling down to the Widgets section.

To set up the widget, you must sign up for a Goodreads account.

Once you’ve created an account and signed in, click on your avatar to see your profile page.

The profile link will be near the top right of the Goodreads site:

click on your profile
Menu bar.

Next, you’ll need to collect your numeric user ID from the address bar in your browser.

You’ll use this to set up the widget in a minute, so keep the ID handy. It should look like this:

Address bar, showing the user ID.

All you need is the numeric part, so copy the numbers and prepare to paste them into the widget.

You can find that widget under Appearance > Customize in your dashboard or Appearance > Widgets.

Widget setup.
