I believe someone said it's only available for those registered to the amazon.com site

I'm a little short tempered at the moment as I'm actually not very well and I don't handle ill health with good grace.

Thanks - have a hospital visit on the 10th which I'm not looking forward to. At the moment I can't get a sitter so that's a headache too.

Good luck at the hospital Denis. I'm suffering real bad with allergies like always around this time if year, so can well imagine the headache. X

Thanks for your help. It's just when I went and read the manual it has a part in it about connecting to goodreads, sorry if I annoyed anybody for asking a question that I thought was relevant to the new paper white.

Maybe that's were the problem is, it was a present from America :)

there are two user manuals in English and if you downloaded the US and not the UK one, that could be the problem (I couldn't figure out how to tell which was which)

Hello....

Currently Goodreads is not available for non-USA customers; I was told about that by the Kindle personal assistance; there are an error in UK and Spain Kindle manuals (I don't know if this error is present in other languages of the Kindle manual) because they mention Goodreads feature, but, as I said, this feature is only available for Amazon USA customers; I let the personal assistance know that I was interested in this feature; it would be good this requirement be sent to them in order to this feature be enabled. A thing you can do is register your device with a US address in order to have this feature (I've just to prove it minutes ago and it works)

CBRetriever says:
part of the problem could be that there are two English User Guides (UK & US) and there are two Spanish User Guides (Spain & Mexico) and the Mexican one is probably meant for US by US Spanish speaking residents

also, Goodreads is availabel for non-US residents registered to amazon.com, so you could always migrate to amazon.com and you'd have it (I do and I'm in France registered to amazon.com)

It's in the German manual as well and there is no German country where goodreads on Kindle is available

CBRetriever says:
interesting - it probably just means they told someone to translate the User Guides w/o making any changes or maybe it's meant for those who speak German but are registered to amazon.com. However it is mentioned in the hilfe pages as well

and interestingly enough, I found a lot of articles saying that Goodreads has signifiantly expanded their German listings:

http://the-digital-reader.com/2014/03/12/goodreads-expands-their-book-database-with-more-german-langauge-titles/

so maybe it's in the works for Germans
