ZaraS  *book reviewer | 2365 comments THE GOODREADS AUTHORS CHALLENGE
Duration: January 1 - December 31, 2014


The idea is to read books by Goodreads authors. These authors have invested in the Goodreads community just as you have.

The authors you read don't need to be new to you; however, we encourage you to go outside of your comfort zone a bit to discover new authors right here.

How to Tell if Someone is a Goodreads author :
On the book page, you will see (Goodreads Author) in gray next to the author's name
On the author page, you will see "Goodreads author profile" in the top right across from the author's name

Alison G. (agriff22) | 1083 comments ill try for 15. I went through the list of books that I have possibly scheduled for next year and there are 40-some Goodreads authors. So I'll go for a little less than half. I might lower or raise it though.

message 19: by Sharon (new)

Sharon (sharint) | 734 comments I'm in, I think a lot of the authors I read are goodreads authors so I don't know how many I'll get. (I read 150+ books a year)11 out of the last 20 books I read were by goodreads authors. I'll go with a goal of 50 for now taking into account that I read multiple books by the same authors.
