I want to post quotes from my kindle paperwhite to goodreads but share button always disabled.

I tuned progress posting and finding books in goodreads using this question and I found information that quotes sharing available only for USA, Canada and Australia but I am from other country.

I try to find difference between amazon book from which I can post quotes and my sideloaded book from which I can't post quotes and I didn't find it.

Are there anybody who found the way to share quotes for sideloaded books?

  • Good reads is owned by Amazon. For some reason some things in good reads only work,with books bought from the kindle store. Eg ratings when you end the book on the kindle. – user151019 Apr 26 '19 at 22:30

I am not completely sure, but my best guess is that Share quote feature requires that a book loaded on your Kindle be identifiable on Goodreads. This is trivial for Kindle books with their ASIN ids, but not so easy with sideloaded content. If I were in this situation, I would try finding out if I could manually assign ASIN id to a sideloaded book using Calibre or some such other tool (assuming the book exists on Goodreads database in the first place).

    Amazon ASIN is needed to share reading progress too. I set it via calibre in sideloaded book, but I can't share quotes – Magog Mar 13 '16 at 8:15
