Goodreads is a website that is full of the people authors love and yearn for - readers. Amazon obviously thinks Goodreads has massive potential, as they have just bought it. If you are an author, are you using the awesome power of Goodreads to its full potential? It is growing at a phenomenal rate, doubling its membership from 6.5 million users in 2011 to 13 million in 2012. Membership is currently (November 2013) 20 million and rising. An astonishing 21% of Goodreads group members are also book bloggers. These are the people we as authors need to reach. We have to do it in a respectful, professional way though. Too many authors can be seen on other social platforms screaming, 'Buy my book!'. No-one gets away with that on Goodreads. Goodreads users are educated, passionate, and can spot self-promoting authors with ease. You don't need to self-promote, and you don't need to leave your success to luck. What you do need to do is set out in this book - together with a suggested schedule of how to engage your readers via your activity on Goodreads (just minutes each day). It is the result of months of study, research, testing, and writing. The chapters are written in the steps authors need to take to get started on Goodreads: claim your author profile, add your blog (or start one), add videos, photos, quotes, etc., add your book(s), join helpful groups, meet readers and potential readers, harness the power of Giveaways, promote your free days/offers, and much, much more, such as: * Find out how 50 Shades Of Grey and other bestsellers harnessed the power of Goodreads - with real figures and statistics showing the viral effect in action. * Understand how to create this effect yourself, for your own books. * Learn strategies to promote your book online, without having to waste hours on Twitter and Facebook (you'll find out why that isn't a very valuable thing to do with your time). * Find out how to use Goodreads's self-serve advertising to test ads and targeting in order to create a viral effect on Goodreads in order to promote your book on Amazon. You don't have to resort to sneaky tricks or black hat tactics to be successful on Goodreads. You just need to learn how to use the site properly, respect other users, and let them find your books naturally, using the site's numerous tools.

Yoga has been saving my sanity lately and it definitely deserves more time so I'm lowering my reading goal to accommodate. Last year was crazy and so far work proves to be even crazier this year already. The blog is still going strong and I look forward to trying to incorporate social media into it more. Come by and check it out some time!

My Goodreads challenge this year, I always up it by five since I started in 2016 with 30 books. I set it low so I don't have to stress about achieving it. I know I will read more but that will be a plus.

Don't stress about your challenges just do whatever you want to do and is plausible for you. 😘📚📖

Americanbookdragon My goal is either 15 or 65 books. Typically it's 50, but I read 35 extra books last year and it'd be cool to sneak in 50 extra books. 13mo
Ms_T I completely agree, goals should be achievable if you want to stay sane. Good luck with yours 📚😘 13mo
Birdsong28 @ms_t Thanks 😘📚📖 13mo
Birdsong28 @Americanbookdragon It will be cool to sneak in some extra books. 📚📖 13mo

Does goodreads randomly log anyone else out? I‘ll browse on my phone (iPhone 7 safari) and I‘ll get logged out and have to log back in with Facebook. Does this happen to anyone else?

Redwritinghood No, but I use the app not Safari browser. 1y
BookishGirl06 @Redwritinghood I use both. Sometimes it‘s easier to use the web one 1y
Birdsong28 I am constantly logged in through my Amazon account on my app on my phone/Kindle but it does log me out on my tablet web browser. I keep it logged in on my web browser on my phone though. Website is easier to use for changing editions of the book but the app is easier for everything else. 📚📖 1y

I started on #Goodreads in 2016, although I have also shelved and tagged books that I read before then. There are definitely books with multiple tags, too. I just made some new shelves and have learned things. I guess I like fantasy way more than I thought!

It‘s day 1 of the #goodreadschoiceawards !!

I was surprised by how few of the books I‘d read tbh. I guess there were a lot of categories covering a lot of genres. I‘m not expecting any of my faves to win but I enjoy the general vibe! I‘ll try and tick a few more off before the end of the year. Who did you guys vote for?

Tashreads I nominated Evelyn Hardcastle for best mystery and best debut - was one of the best of the year! Also Circe for fantasy 🙌🙌 1y
Emilymdxn @Tashreads I voted for Circe for fantasy too! I downloaded seven deaths of Evelyn hardcastle yesterday and I‘m excited to read it 1y
mreads Same here, I've read very few listed but I tend to avoid the hyped/buzzed books which might explain why. 1y
Emilymdxn @mreads I generally make an effort to read ‘books everyone is talking about‘ but there are so many of them. There were a few new releases I was surprised not to see on there, and then lots that were genres I just didn‘t like 1y

Here‘s *Veronica Roth* accepting her achievement award at the #goodreadschoice 10th anniversary party. Behind her are three top Goodreads reviewers, including my two favorites, Karen Brissette and Emily May. I also somehow won one of the raffle prizes (6 month audible subscription) plus got a swag bag! Voting opens at 11 pm tonight and I can tell you the list looks pretty great!

Kalalalatja Sounds like quite the night! 👏👏👏 1y
Kaylamburson Congrats on the win!! I always wondered how Emily May's reviews are on literally every book I've ever read lol 1y

GUYS. I randomly got invited to this Goodreads event tonight and it was SO awesome. It wasn‘t that big of an event, so I saw most of the writers on this list while milling around sipping wine (Dave Cullen was behind me on the bar line for a bit). I took the elevator up with EL James and Colleen Hoover. They did a little awards ceremony (which I‘ll post next) and then announced this year‘s nominees! #goodreadschoice

sprainedbrain That‘s awesome!! 1y

mdemanatee I can‘t believe it‘s already time for this year‘s voting 😱 1y
Kaylamburson Oh perfect! It's always interesting what people choose to wear. But if I was being honored, I'd totally use the excuse for a full-length gown! If only there was a televised event like the Oscar's for books! 1y

Has anyone else updated their Goodreads? If so what do you think? I quite like it, it's fresh and I think it has needed it as it hasn't updated this dramatically for awhile and things have become boring.

Anybody else having issues with Goodreads lately? Mine crashed and when I logged back in, it was like my whole account was reset or a new account was created... I‘ve tried everything I can and can‘t get all my old info back...
And the 1 book on my Read shelf is nothing I‘ve even read... so frustrating!
I really don‘t use it for anything other than tracking what I‘ve read, but it still makes me mad

Bostonmomx2 Mines okay. Hoping yours gets back on track soon. I would absolutely die if I lost my account. I probably should do a backup somehow. 2y
ephemeralwaltz Mine's fine too. I'm sure it'll be back soon!! 2y
Johanna414 @Bostonmomx2 @ephemeralwaltz it‘s entirely possible I did something to screw it up... who knows 2y

TheDaysGoBy I reached mine with my latest read. It was only 15 books, but usually it's a struggle to get that much in a year. The fact that I've reached it in June speaks to the wonderful community we've got here that helps motivate me/keeps my TBR growing. Also doesn't hurt I'm listening to audiobooks now 😂 2y
SilversReviews @erzascarletbookgasm Ok...that makes sense. You can do it then. 2y
SilversReviews @TheDaysGoBy Wonderful that you have reached your goal, and the Litsy Community has helped. There are wonderful people here. I have been enjoying audiobooks. 2y
Birdsong28 Have read 35/40. I set it low due to work and other commitments. I know I will read more as it was 35 last year and I read 92 in total!!! 📚😂 2y

BookishMe I will commit to a big number (a little larger than previous years) towards end of January, when I know how many I complete this month. 2y
SilversReviews @BookishMe that is a good strategy. 2y
LA_Mead @BookishMe that makes a lot of sense! 2y
croberts51 40 books for me! Doubled last year‘s goal because I‘m going to MAKE more time for reading. Plus audiobooks always add at least one book a week. 2y
Susannah I decreased from 48 to 30 this year because I want to read some longer books and some classics, and, for me, those require more time. 2y
SilversReviews @croberts51 oh. I didn't know audiobooks counted. 2y
SilversReviews @Susannah good thinking. 2y
croberts51 @SilversReviews I don‘t know why it wouldn‘t! You still can log them in to your goodreads as read if you‘ve listened to them. 2y
SilversReviews @croberts51 GREAT....I never knew that...thanks for letting me know. Appreciate it. 2y

I‘m really happy I exceeded my goal of reading 50 books in 2017 by reading 60 books! I‘m keeping my 2018 reading goal at 50 books, but I‘m hoping I‘ll exceed it again! Happy 2018, everyone!

So this year I put fewer books on my challenge (I know it‘s still a lot)- I‘m teaching a college course, coaching my Girls on the Run team, planning my wedding and teaching my kinders...so I think my reading might decrease a bit 😀 but I‘m so excited for 2018!!

RealLifeReading Sounds like an exciting year! Happy 2018! 2y
DivineDiana That‘s a lot of books! You‘re going to have an incredible year! 🙂 2y

Wish me luck!! I'm sure I can do it as I surpassed my target of 35 books challenge last year to end up reading 91 books. I always set it low as then it's not such a pressure on me. 📖📚

Andrew65 Well done 🙌👏 2y
TommieMarie74 That‘s a good idea. I set mine a little higher each year and the last two years I‘ve had to lower it, realizing I would never make my original goal. 2y
Ms_T Good luck! 🍀🤞🏻📚 2y

Well, I've still got progress to make by Litsy standards, but in 2016 I read 20 books, so I'd call this a WIN. #goodreadschallenge

Have you seen this on Goodreads? Apparently they have it every year. 😍.

I never noticed it until it this year. 😍

Not sure this links directly to my YEAR IN REVIEW, but I hope so.

Gezemice Great year! The link links to mine, so I guess it goes to the logged in user's year page 2y
SilversReviews @Gezemice Thanks for the information. I sort of figured that, but I wasn‘t sure. 2y

I haven't reached my goal this year. To be honest I'm surprised I read as much as I have. It's been a rough year with lots of travelling home for a few months here and there . It's not quantity but quality right? I have read some pretty fantastic books this year so far.

Notafraidofwords How did you get this. Does goodreads email it to you? 2y
Crash When you go onto Goodreads it's towards the top right of the page, just over the books other people post. I think they do email you towards the end of the year. 2y

Are any other international littens annoyed to find that Goodreads is changing it‘s giveaway rules from January and only allowing US residents to enter? 😡😡😡 https://www.goodreads.com/blog/show/1108-goodreads-introduces-new-u-s-giveaways-...

rabbitprincess What the what! 💩 2y
laurenbescoby This is infuriating. I've loved the books I have won on Goodreads this year and am really gonna miss this feature. It may even turn me off using Goodreads in the future. 2y
Kalalalatja But whyyyyyy? 2y

Oryx That's very annoying 2y
mrp27 Oh wow, that's not cool at all. 2y
LeahBergen Is this just for Kindle ebooks? Or print, too? 2y
DeborahSmall That‘s really shit!! 2y
julesG Ugh! Why?! 2y
saresmoore That‘s lame! 2y
HelloImJez This makes no sense :| daaaamn! 2y
ScorpioBookDreams @LeahBergen print too! Plus they‘re charging a huge amount to authors and publishers so it won‘t be worth listing anymore. 2y
ScorpioBookDreams @miralunasbooknook it‘s caused a lot of upset I think. They‘re also charging a lot of money to list a giveaway now. 2y
ScorpioBookDreams Here‘s the link to the blog article for anyone wanting to read more https://www.goodreads.com/blog/show/1108-goodreads-introduces-new-u-s-giveaways-... 2y
laurenbescoby @ScorpioBookDreams it's annoying as it's going to price a lot of indie writers out of being able to list their books on a giveaway and its a big promotional tool for them. 2y
LazyOwl The article says open to US Residents initially, so hopefully they'll open it up to international at a later stage. Disappointing for now though. 2y
minkyb That is disappointing. 2y
