Amazon has updated its Kindle ebook readers and Fire tablets with Goodreads integration in the UK and Ireland, bringing book recommendations and shared notes from the 40 million-strong readers’ community.

The e-commerce giant acquired Goodreads back in March 2013, and began adding features to its Kindle software for users in the US, Canada and Australia later that year.

With the latest update, Kindle users in the UK can see which titles their friends are enjoying, follow their reviews. You can also share which books you’re currently reading along with your favorite passages from them.

Amazon says the update will roll out to users’ devices in the coming weeks. The new features will be available on all generations of Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle Voyage, the latest generation Kindle and all Fire tablets.
