Thank you for inviting me, I'm still considering to involve more challenges here, but Goodreads got blocked by GFW a few months ago, so I spend much less time here.(And I form a small reading group on Wechat with Chinese readers)

If I could connect GR, I hope I could join more activities here, but no promise.
