Scrape goodreads.com for data on millions of books. Crawl book details for images, ISBN, author, description, title, buy links, number of reviews, page number, language, and all other details. You can specify search terms, filters, and much more.

The code examples below show how to run the Actor and get its results. To run the code, you need to have an Apify account. Replace <YOUR_API_TOKEN> in the code with your API token, which you can find under Settings > Integrations in Apify Console. Learn more
