Calibre NOT returning Goodreads Metadata very often.

Greetings,

For the last couple of weeks Calibre has not been getting the metadata for Goodreads for the majority of books (it gets 1 for evey 10 it fails (could be more)). I end up having to manually enter the Goodreads ID (painful).

It has been working great. Has something changed with the plugin? I'm using Calibre 3.21 on Win 10.

If I drop only the title name into the search bar on Goodreads the title I am looking for generally always pops up, but Calibre can't seem to find it. I haven't changed the way I am doing anything.

Here is the error message I usually get. I notice it states "Plugin Goodreads failed". Looking forward to some answers. Thanks.

Code:
calibre, version 3.21.0
ERROR: No matches found: <p>Failed to find any books that match your search. Try making the search <b>less specific</b>. For example, use only the author's last name and a single distinctive word from the title.<p>To see the full log, click "Show details".

Look in the thread for that plugin in the plugins sub-forum.

Thanks kovid,

I have found the correct page. (I searched for this before posting, but never struck it - typical! )

I will move my questions to there.

@Chris_Snow: There was a recent change to the Goodreads site. I have fixed this and uploaded a beta that you can install from the thread Kovid is refering to. But, I'll arrange for the official release tonight or tomorrow.
