Goodreads hits 5,000 authors

Posted by Otis Chandler on December 01, 2008
We hit a fun benchmark over the holiday - 5,000 authors who have signed up for our Author Program!

The Author Program has grown quickly ever since we noticed lots of real authors creating profiles on the site, and gave them the ability to take control of their author profile.

We have been honored to have lots of popular authors sign up. Authors like Neil Gaiman, Paulo Coelho, Jennifer Weiner, Sarah Dessen, Michael Connelly, Chris Bohjalian, and many more have joined and been using Goodreads to connect to their fans. It's also a lot of fun to see what they are reading - just the other day I saw a book review from Neil Gaiman in my friend updates!

But the majority of the the 5,000 authors are of course newer, self-published, smaller authors - and we have been thrilled to give them the tools to start building a following for their books.
