Kris Hi there! I'm new to Goodreads and this is my first group, so I am figuring out things as I go. I've been wanting to do a challenge like this for a while, and this seems like the perfect way to do it. Wish me luck!

Hi, Kris! Good luck on your 50+ books. Writing out your list in the group, and having people comment on your list and being able to comment on others' lists is actually (I find) a great motivator to read more :)

And we're a super-friendly group, so if you have any questions about how Goodreads or this group works, feel free to ask. Most likely, plenty of people will answer you :)

Yeah, I'm a little ahead of schedule. I've been reading a few shorter ones though, which is certainly helpful. Perhaps I should have set it higher than 50, but oh well. Maybe next year I'll try a hundred.
