5.4 Fan Club: Go to the profile page of one of your favorite authors and navigate to their fan listing. Click on a fan's profile and read a 5-star book from their Read shelf. Required: Post a link to the author and state the fan whose list you used.


If you have questions, need suggestions OR have suggestions for books to read for this task, please post them here.

Lahni | 314 comments The 5 star book does not need to be by the author whose page was used correct?

Correct, any 5 star book from one of your author's fans. Hopefully, you'll find someone with similar taste in books since you share a favorite author

Bea | 4163 comments Task 5.4 - I went to my favorite author's site and clicked on many of his fans - one is even a GR librarian. None of them had rated the books! What to do?

Bea, I checked Jeffery Deaver's page, I checked the first fan listed Noura when I looked at her list and sorted it by rating I found 6+ pages of 5 star books. You don't need a Deaver book from her list, any book she rated 5 stars would work. And if that fan's list doesn't please you, try another fan.

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 832 comments I think I like this task. Maybe I will get around to The Host which has been sitting on my Nook unread for months

Oh, sure - the one I did not check! I checked Julie, Chris, Christa, Jason, Rebekah, Jennifer, and Susan and gave up! Thanks, Dimrose.

Just went back and rechecked some of those names. Now ratings show up. I must have changed my settings yesterday. Lots to choose among now!

Cheryl (eagle1964) | 271 comments I must really by stupid because I don't know how to get to an author's profile page. Can you help me please?

Sure, enter an author's name or title into the "find books by.." box and when the list of books comes up, click on the authors name. If the returned list is long, you can limit it- click on the "more options" link and select authors.

Once you are on the authors page the fan listing is on the left of the page. You may have to scroll down depending on ads and what the author has on the page

Riona (rionafaith) Are we allowed to use a book by that author if one of the fans rated it 5 stars? Or is that too easy and we need to choose a book they rated 5 stars by a different author? A lot of my favorite authors have written a ton of books and I haven't read all of them!

You may read a book by your favorite author if the fan has rated it 5 stars
