Tien (tiensblurb) | 2666 comments I assume we can do reverse chronologically?

1916-1920
1911-1915
1906-1910
1901-1905

Rosemary | 3125 comments Do the 5-year periods have to go xxx1-xxx5, xxx6-xxx0 or could we do, for example, xxx3-xxx7, xxx8-xxx2?

You can start anywhere, and your example xxx3-xxx7, xxx8-xxx2 would definitely work. My plan originally started with 1912-1916, but then I saw I wanted to fit in Shirley Jackson and moved them all down a notch.

Rebekah (bekalynn) | 4487 comments does reading in order mean in the order of the author's birth or the order of book published?

Elizabeth (Alaska) | 12791 comments In order of author's birth - the date ranges in order.

Anika | 2071 comments Ahhhh! I'm just about done with my book and just realized it was co-authored (my library had the audiobook but it was only listed under Stephen King's name...just realized it was co-authored by Richard Chizmar when I pulled up its goodreads page). Will that still work for this task?

Elizabeth (Alaska) | 12791 comments Which author is listed first on the GR page? That is who we will use.

Anika | 2071 comments Yay! Stephen King is listed first (oops: just realized I forgot to include the link in the original post! Gwendy's Button Box). Thank you!
