READ 2013 IN 2013!!

Are you ready for a year-long challenge? A challenge that everyone on the RKB page can participate in, whether you usually do challenges or not? Can we, as a group, read 2013 different books in 2013?? Let's find out!!

With Jessica's help, I've created an RKB page on GoodReads. The email address is rkbreaders@gmail.com and the password is rkbfb. Log into that account and set up a shelf with your name. After you've finished a book, put it on your shelf. That's it! It doesn't matter how many others have read the book. GRs only counts one of each.

A suggestion: I know it might be a pain to log in and out of your own account. If you have more than one browser, you can set up your main one for your personal page and your alternative browser for the RKB page.

If you don't have a GoodReads account, not to worry! I'll be posting this on the Forum page (the little smile icon under the RKB picture) so you can put the books you've read there and I'll post them on GR. Also, once a week or so, I'll post a reminder here.

Remember, this starts on January 1, 2013!

Enjoy!

PS: Even if you're not a member of the RKB FB page, feel free to join us!

Sure! You can post the books here or on the RKB page under my post in the Forums. I made a special shelf for "everyone else"!

Heather | 72 comments I'm downloading the Goodreads app onto my phone, and I'll log into that as RKB, then I can leave my browser logged in as me. Great challenge!

Kathryn (an80slady6886) | 43 comments Wow, even books we read our kids! Well,I read him a book every night. Ofcourse, he likessome books over and over,but still I still have a lot of different ones that I read him.


message 26: by Melinda (new)

Melinda (melinda413) | 34 comments Everything should definitely count! All genres, etc.

I think that makes it more interesting- to see the variety.


message 27: by Shane (new)

Shane | 4 comments I agree n that way we all get exposed to many more books from different genres.


message 28: by Heather (new)

Heather | 72 comments I've never put the books I read with my son on Goodreads, not sure why, but I'll be sure to add them to the RKB page.


message 29: by Teri Pre (new)

Teri Pre | 455 comments Mod

Teri Pre | 455 comments Mod
On the left, under "My Books", under everyone's names there's an "add shelf" link. :)
