Getting your Goodreads API key

Note: As of December 8th 2020, Goodreads is no longer issuing new API keys and plans to discontinue the service entirely. Due to this change, you can no longer get an API key to fetch book information from Goodreads.

  1. Login to Goodreads and visit their API Keys page.
  2. Enter Ultimate Book Blogger Plugin as the application name and your blog name as the "Company" (though ultimately these details do not really matter).
  3. Leave the other fields (application URL, callback URL, and support URL) blank.
  4. Click Update App Info to save your settings.
  5. Your API key (and secret) will then be shown on the page. You want to copy the key value and paste that into the Ultimate BB settings.
