Book Club Challenge!!
« on: March 06, 2013, 01:45:50 AM »
So ... I know it's a little late, the year has already started (a couple of months ago), but still, I am starting a Book Club challenge on Goodreads!  ;D I can feel the excitement, I know you all love a challenge. So, come sign up

2013 Fantasy Faction Book Club Challenge

and let us know how many can you read??  ;D

If you have any questions, just ask. Pretty much, you just pick whatever number you feel you can/want to try to do, create a bookshelf on your account for it, and when you place a read book on it, it will keep track of your progress towards your goal. Pretty simple.  :)

I've joined but I've only put 12 as a goal - is that letting the side down?

Nope. not at all :) And I found out, it uses the date to you marked the book as read into the Criteria as well. So while I have read 6 of the book club books so far this year, it only shows 5 because I read Retribution Falls last year.

I guess I could go read one of the previous reads that I missed and mark that as a book club read ;) Not sure.

Why don't my read books show up?

I made a special shelf, called "book club" added the book club books (some read, some currently reading, some want to read), but it's still at 0 books for me...

You dont have the 'date read' field set on any of them. Set those, and they should show up. If they dont, then try the above.

Thanks! Would have never thought that this would be needed. I never set dates for when I read them.

Only thing I need to figure out now is why the dates don't save. If I click on "set date" and put March, 6th 2013 for example and click save, nothing happens. :P

Edit: Ah, just needs some time. :) Thanks, Lisa! (And now I see in the fine print, that I have to set a date. I'm dead tired - hope that counts as an excuse. ;))

Goodreads always takes a bit of time to update tickers etc after you've marked a book read.

;D Awesome! I almost feel like a slacker saying 18. But I'm also too anal about the dates, so I won't change them. So even if I participate/reread a book I've read before, I won't be able to include it in my count. 18 gives me some leeway.  8)

If I only read half of one of the books, does it still count?  :P

I wondered that too. It would give me Foundation.

For those of you participating in this, how's it going?

My challenge shows I have read 8 out of my 18 (1 book ahead). I have actually read all 10, but two of them I had read last year, so they don't count towards the challenge :(
