10.8 Hidden Gems: Gems are found deep in the Earth. Find a hidden gem, SRC-style, by reading a book with less than 1,000 ratings. For this task, the number of ratings on a book's main Goodreads page will be used. Required: Include the number of ratings the book had when it was selected when you post.

Christine US (christineus) | 572 comments If a book goes over 1000 ratings by the time we report it -- as long we we give you the # of ratings it had when we selected it, will that work?


chucklesthescot Great one for me! 300 of my 726 tbrs are rated below 272 ratings! Spoiled for choice now...

Great question Christine, I'm wondering the same thing.

That will work. Please note the added Required element to the task description to take care of that potential situation.

Kate (kathrynlouwca) | 1049 comments SRC = Seasonal Reading Challenge. It is the name of the group and has nothing to do, really, with the requirements on the task.

Yes, you're looking at the right number. The number of ratings is to the right of the title between the rating details graph and the number of reviews.
