booklikes to goodreads Synchronization

The bl to goodreads sync is a mess if you want to send reviews across.  Something is wrong with the HTML formatting in goodreads that is probably in the bl end of the API, how they send over the file.  The book syncs work as intended however.  I don't rate or review on gr so I don't really care and I rarely shelve books on gr anymore except just as "read" when I am finished.

 

Just for reference, the sync sends from bl to gr only and syncs it but changes you make or reviews do not come over to bl from gr.  In other words it is a one-way sync from bl to gr.  I suspect this will always be the way since gr wants to get your content but doesn't want to give away any content.
