Steph (angel4492) | 28457 comments Okay, lemme poke around and see what I can do to help.


message 15: by Steph, Just keep swimming … (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 28457 comments Hi Trina. I found two links that should work, but neither is currently working. One was found on the 'Friends' page, on the top right side bar: Books My Friends Are Reading. The other I'd saved in a list, so I'm not sure where you'd find it otherwise, is: Popular Books Among My Friends This Month. For both links, I'm getting a GR error:
"Goodreads request took too long. The latest request to the Goodreads servers took too long to respond. We have been notified of the issue and are looking into it."
Maybe it'll eventually work. Until it does, skip that part of the challenge.
