This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



aNobii is a social networking service for book lovers. It was set up in 2006 by a private company owned by Greg Sung and based in Hong Kong.
The service allows individuals to catalogue their books and rate, review and discuss them with other readers. The service is available via the aNobii website and iPhone and Android Apps. The Apps allow individuals to barcode scan books and read both community and expert reviews.

This is a WordPress plugin that adds a widget to display your books from your Anobii account.
Currently tested only with WordPress 3.0 and 3.1. It is still in beta, so don’t hesitate to commit bugs or suggest improvements.
Current version: 0.0.9


  • Add a link to your profile around the widget title
  • Select how many books to show (from 1 to 5)
  • Select wheter to show book covers (always, never, only on the first book)
  • Uses AJAX to avoid slowing down the whole website
  • Choice books with particoular status ( Finished, Not Started, Reading, Unfinished, Reference, Abandoned)
  • Configurable cache (via transient)
  • Multilanguage



I’m looking for translators. If you’re interested please contact me or just fork the repo, add the translations and submit a pull request.

Thankyou guys!

Simply keep using the plugin and if you find some bug or if you want to suggest a new feature just submit an issue. If you want you can even translate the plugin in your language, so, in this case, you can contact me or just fork the repository on github, add your translations and submit a pull request.
