30.3 Sassafrass's Task: Readers Also Enjoyed

One of things I've always loved about Goodreads is the chance to discover books I would likely have never found if it weren't for recommendations from my goodreads friends and the goodreads community as a whole. So, in honor of those books I've found and enjoyed over my four years as a "goodreader", this task is going to explore one of the ways I've made some wonderful book discoveries.

This is a two book task. Standard SRC rules apply for both books.

Book A: For the first book, choose any book that you want to read. The book doesn't have to be new-to-you, but I think it would be more fun if it were. Keep in mind your second book will be generated by the first book you choose so choose wisely. :)

Book B: As you look at the book page of the first book you choose, you'll notice on right hand side of the page there is a section called "Readers Also Enjoyed". If you click on that menu bar, it will open up another page with several books that other goodreads users who read your book also enjoyed. Pick one the books from that list and use it for your second book.

For example:

I read Angelfall in the Fall 2013 challenge, but if I was reading that one for this task, I would go on the main book page and find the "Readers Also Enjoyed" section:  photo 573e7afa-1c21-40b9-a3b4-a0e113bea264_zps8f596dd1.jpg
And then I could read any book on that following page:  photo e3f2d393-fbc7-4975-b72e-4093614f0cce_zpsa9e2acbc.jpg

Note: Since lists can change, be sure to note the day you found book 2 on the list

Required: You must include the date when you found book 2 on the list

I hope you find a new book (or two) to enjoy!

absolutely. It doesn't matter if it's on your TBR already or not.

Kathy G. | 2073 comments Do we approve book 2 with you now? What if it changes later? Or do you need the date because you can look it up? Just wondering.

It's fine if it changes later, but if you want to verify it on this thread you can.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean. Could you give me an example?


message 18: by Midu (new)

Midu Hadi | 903 comments Readers also enjoyed for Summer Knight (The Dresden Files, #4) by Jim Butcher shows a lot of books which are either 3, 4 or 5th in the series. I was wondering if I could read say the 1st book in the Nightside series or would it be necessary to read the 5th?

Ah, I get it. That's what I was thinking that you meant. Unfortunately, no Midu. You have to read a book that's specifically on the list. Sorry.

Midu Hadi | 903 comments All right! Will look for another one. Thanks :-)

Would like to note that Book B appears on Book A's "Readers Also Enjoyed" list today. Thanks, fun task!

those are fine but remember, you still have to mention the date you found them on the list when you post. :)
