Integrate Goodreads with Todoist

alt text

Recently I read an article by Todoist about different productivity methods, and in one of the materials, I read about automation. Creating an automatic todo task, for example, if you add articles in the pocket app it will create a task in Todoist. So this made me think why not add Goodreads want to read to Todoist. So I did it, now whenever I mark a book as want to read it will create a task t in my Todoist. It is a straightforward process, and I will give you all the details on how to do it. You can do this with TickTick also.
