If you can manually find the book the book in Goodreads, then the Goodreads Metadata Source plugin should find it. Unless the title and author from the book source don't match. And then it comes to fixing those. Or accepting the differences for whatever reason. In that case, you can set the Goodreads ID and force a match. Copy the URL of the book you want to match and use the paste button next to the identifier field in the metadata editor. That will convert the URL to an identifier if the URL is matched by a metadata source plugin.
