However, I have been mystified by printing my "to read" list. The site offers a "print" option, but for some reason it doesn't really work. It looks like it will, but when I print it spits out extra pages. When I go to www.printwhatyoulike.com (a site to adjust the way websites print so you don't get extra pages), it doesn't read the page I want either.
So, I've just figured out a workaround and thought I'd share it here for my readers that are also goodreads members. (And if you aren't my friend on goodreads, add me - I'd love to see what you're reading.)
- Log into good reads
- Go to "my books"
- Go to "import" (left side bar, shown as "widgets | import | api")
- Go to "export to a csv file" (right sidebar)
- Choose "Open with Microsoft Office Excel" (this is the default option on mine) and click "ok"
- When the Excel file opens, sort by the "bookshelves" column (column p on mine) and hide or delete anything that is not listed as "to read"
- Delete or hide anything you don't want to print (I just leave columns A-title, B-author, and R-my review). Adjust page layout as necessary (I change to landscape orientation, narrower margins, and shade every other row*)
* excel will shade every other row for you, but how to do it depends on your version of excel. Type "shade every other row in excel" into Google for directions.
