Check what your friends/connections on Goodreads are reading in an easy and straightforward way.
What is included in the sale ?
What is the technological stack ?
Ruby on Rails backend hosted on heroku.com. It uses Goodreads API to get details about your friends/network on Goodreads. The website is both desktop and mobile responsive.
Which parts of the project are incomplete ?
Nothing really. You can build more features on top of this. Eg Adding books to wishlist/shelf right from this app, Generating a report to find books read most in your network, showing books arranged in shelf for a friend etc etc
Why are you selling ?
Currently, I don't get active time to work on this. There are a lot of things that can be added to this and can be morphed into an interesting social network around books. Would be better for someone who is thinking of doing something on similar lines to take over.
How can the future owner turn your project into a business ?
1. Build a better social network around books (something that looks better than Goodreads). Engage users by showing interesting statistics -- most books read in your network, newly books read in your network etc etc using graphs.
2. Build a dating app based on what types of book people read. Eg If I like "Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari" and some girl likes it too, I will probably speak to her than someone random on Tinder. Heck, I will even join you to work if you decide to pursue this idea.
