How Do I Import My Reading Data From Goodreads?

You need to export your data from Goodreads first. Please note that you must use their website. The Goodreads mobile app does not support exporting. Here is the process:

  1. When logged into Goodreads, click here.
  2. Click on “Export Library” at the top.
  3. Note: This may take some time depending on the size of your library.
  4. When done, it will allow you to download a CSV file. Download that.
  5. Go to your settings page and scroll down to Goodreads Import. Click the + sign beside it to expand it.
  6. Choose the file on your computer, and then click “Start Import”.

If all goes well, you should receive an e-mail confirming the Goodreads Import has begun, and a second e-mail when it is complete and all books on your list are matched.

We have a video we made in Windows showing the process, using Chrome. This will differ slightly of course if you are using a different device, but the general process is the same.

If you run into any issues, don’t hesitate to contact us.
