Latest reviews

  • (2021-05-30) Madison Shimoda: I have never reviewed an extension before (and I use a ton of fabulous ones) but I felt compelled to leave a review for this one because it is ingenious. I almost cannot believe this exists! Thank you for developing this!
  • (2020-11-11) Stephanie Starke: Seriously the best extension I have. If I could only have one, this is the one I would pick. It saves me so much time, and it always works. Seriously amazing extension!!!
  • (2020-08-17) Denise Rayman: The handiest extension, a must have for any power reader!
  • (2020-07-02) Veekas Ashoka: I've used this extension for years, and I always use it to help me find books to read. It honestly would be a no-brainer to be added as a feature within Goodreads itself if Amazon wasn't the parent company of the site.
  • (2020-06-23) Simionov Daniel Adrian: Would be nice to have more options to hide audiobooks for example, hide when not available, it just becomes an endless blob of text when more than 5-10 libraries are used. 11/10 otherwise.
  • (2020-01-31) Umut G├╝ltepe: Works like a charm, saves a ton of time!
  • (2019-09-24) Courtney Anderson: THIS IS AMAZING! I added both my libraries to the extension and it's so easy to see what's available. Finding books is going to be so much easier. Thanks rhollister!!!!! Edit: 6 years later this extension is still used by me all the time. It even works in the Edge Chromium Beta. Never miss getting myself on the wait list early for new e-books, and there's always something on my goodreads list that is available while I wait. Now I have 7 libraries w/ Overdrive in my network. It's truly insane.
  • (2019-01-09) jeff edwards: Perfect.
  • (2018-09-26) Tara Peltier: LOVE THIS EXTENSION! It makes finding books that are available on Overdrive a breeze. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!
  • (2018-09-13) Gavin Rehkemper: Extremely useful for viewing my Overdrive options in Goodreads. Also available for Firefox now: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/available-reads/
  • (2018-08-15) Beth Carmichael: If you use Goodreads (and especially if you have more than one library through Overdrive), this extension is a MUST HAVE! It is the best and simplest way to see the availability of titles across multiple libraries at once. I love that it differentiates between availability of audiobooks vs. ebooks at a glance, which is fabulous if you are searching for just one format, like me. Equally helpful, if a book is not currently available, the list shows how many copies a library has and how many holds there are on the title (ex. 10/3- meaning there are 10 holds on 3 copies). It does this across all of your libraries, so you can add your name to the shortest hold list. Super helpful! This developer actively works to keep the extension up to date and improve it. He clearly is as much of a book hound as I am. I wish I could tell him how grateful I am that he created and continues to support this extension. It makes searching for my next read SOOO much easier! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
  • (2018-03-27) Lauren Speer: This is so incredible!!! Saves me so much time!
  • (2017-12-30) Natalie McLain: This extension is wonderful! I made a list of audiobooks I want to listen to by using Goodreads. I can check Goodreads now to see what is available. It is so much faster. One wish is that you do an extension for books on RB Digistal and Hoopla as well.
  • (2017-12-26) Kate Wenger: This works perfectly! So much faster than figuring out what Goodreads book currently looks interesting and then checking my library only to discover there are no copies available! I will be using this from now on!
  • (2017-11-12) Oleksandr Larikov: supports only Overdrive, which in turn means it doesn't support paper books availability. Probably good extension for those who look for ebook or audio books in the libraries.
  • (2017-06-26) Tony Crean: Well this is great, though a bit non-intuitive to set up. Be aware that the search is literal - eg. I had just returned Seamus Heaney Beowulf to my library, so I knew the library had it for loan. But this extension couldn't find it because (I think) the Goodreads listing said Beowulf unknown Seamus Heaney - that is, the original Beowulf author is unknown. I suppose that isn't how it is listed in the library catalogue. But overall (one you've worked out which column gives Overdrive availability) is terrific
  • (2017-03-20) Jamie Collins: I use this extension almost every day, absolutely fantastic integration directly into the Goodreads site. The differentiation between ebook and audiobook is especially appreciated.
  • (2017-03-15) Lauren Berman: Fantastic add-on. Make locating available books so much easier
  • (2017-02-16) Cole Swingholm: Works great! Makes looking for ebooks so much easier
  • (2017-02-03) Chris Mrozewski: I love this extension! It saved me so much time and effort. No more jumping back and forth between Goodreads and my Library pages. The design is simple, non-intrusive, fast, and well thought out. This should be integrated into Goodreads by default. Thank you!
  • (2017-01-18) Josh Hagen: Works perfectly.
  • (2017-01-17) Shanna Redwind: This extension has saved me so much time and has made picking books to read easier and less frustrating.
  • (2016-11-30) Elise Johnson: Took me a few tries but I got it working and love it! Thanks for developing this, it's so useful!
  • (2016-08-31) Erin Truax: I've been hoping for something exactly like this!! Thank you!!
  • (2016-08-31) Dana DeFebbo: Where has this extension been all my life! If you are a book nerd like me you will love this add-on. I will say that you may have to refresh the browser a few times if it says a book cannot be found, especially a popular book. Just refresh one or twice and that should help.
  • (2016-08-15) Frank Galanti: Amazing! Really clean and helpful way to see if your local library has the books you want to read. It will save you a ton of money!
  • (2016-07-15) Savant Krishna: Wonderful. Worked right out of the box!
  • (2016-07-05) Wow - its amazing!! RHollister you just made my life super easy! Thanks for building this..
  • (2016-06-27) Kelly Denker: Thank you so much - this is incredibly helpful!
  • (2016-06-02) Eric Wilson: I hate to give it a bad review but it didn't work. It would say the book wasn't found for every book even those I knew were in the overdrive library. If I clicked to used the new overdrive it would list a ton of different books for each book that are in no way related to the book I was looking at. It is strange Hopefully the bugs get worked out I would love to use it.
  • (2016-05-27) Sam Potasznik: this is seriously amazing. thank you, rhollister! it just WORKS!

Latest issues

  • (2021-08-26, v:3.7.0) Dev Singer: Available Reads for StoryGraph
    Any chance you folks want to make a version of Available Reads that works with StoryGraph? I'm switching platforms and the only thing I don't like is that I'm losing this extension. The "StoryGraph Enhancement Tools" extension frankly sucks when it comes to showing me what my libraries have.
  • (2020-06-23, v:3.7.0) Lawrence Scattaglia: File not found?
    Trying to add the Available Goodreads extension to Chrome, but I get the file not found error message. I use it regularly on my other computer; would like to set it up on my husband's account also.
  • (2020-02-04, v:3.7.0) Whitney Werling: Won't load
    I set up all my libraries, but when I load Goodreads, under the Overdrive heading it only shows Loading (library name). It never loads to show availability.
  • (2019-06-30, v:3.7.0) Linda Lanz: Possible to exclude audiobooks?
    I've checked the extension options but don't see anything relevant. Is it possible to configure so that the results never show audiobooks? I rarely listen to audiobooks, so I'd prefer to have the option to exclude them and reduce visual clutter. (Likewise, I'm sure some users would love to see *only* audiobooks, never other formats.) If not currently possible, please consider adding it. Thanks!
  • (2019-04-29, v:3.7.0) Alyia Paulding: Error message :(
    Hi! I found this over the weekend and was super excited about installing it, but when I tried to install it I got the message "Your file was not found It may have been moved or deleted." I know you did this out of the kindness of your heart and sincerely thank you for your time- if there is a fix I will be glad to hear about it, and if not I will find a way to go on living. :)
  • (2019-03-29, v:3.7.0) Michael Peters: available Goodreads
    It'd be great if you could modify this to also work with other ebook library catalogs like Hoopla, Bookshare (I'm sight disabled and get most of my books here and they have an api for searching from apps/extensions), and Enki. To find a book, I tend to have to check all of those, plus my libraries overdrive, and while your extension helps a lot, it'd be nice if it did the other main ones too, or allowed us to add them somehow.
  • (2019-01-02, v:3.7.0) Meredith Webber: Errors on extension
    I get an error when trying to install, the page comes up to an error after installation and I cannot go any further.
  • (2018-11-26, v:3.7.0) Karen McRitchie: Adding Hoopla Availablity?
    Have you considered adding availability from Hoopla? Hoopla offers one from Amazon, but I would love for this to be part of the GoodReads book page. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/hoopla-extension/icihobphagpcnmkkhonhkkjleejoieam PS - I love your extension.
  • (2018-08-04, v:3.4.5) Brianna Wurtsmith: Loading slc... instead of displaying any info
    The extension isn't grabbing any info, though I can see it's trying. In goodreads, on the My Books/Want to Read list, for example, in the "on overdrive" column that the extension adds in, every book just says "Loading slc..." My internet connection is fast, and I followed the instructions to link to slc.overdrive.com, so I don't know what the problem is.
  • (2018-07-24, v:3.4.5) Elise Johnson: book page
    just wondering if the book page is going to be fixed soon. i didn't realize how much i love this extension until it isn't working properly!
  • (2018-07-21, v:3.4.5) Marisa V: Not working at book page
    Hi, I guess you've already read the comment but, just in case, the extension is not working at the book page, only the list page. Marisa
  • (2018-07-20, v:3.4.5) Extension not working on the book page
    I can see the availability of books that are on my shelves, but on the pages for the books, it is not there. I hope for a quick resolution, I moderate one bookclub and am a member of another one and your extension is wonderful!
  • (2018-07-19, v:3.4.5) not working
    This has stopped working on my two computers. Chrome is up to date. I have tried un and reinstalling the extension, rebooting computer, cleaning cache.
