Set Up Your Author Dashboard
You are about to enter a world of avid book readers. Share your love for the written word by following the steps below.
Open An Account
If you are new to Goodreads, get started by navigating to www.goodreads.com. You can sign up either by signing in with your Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or Amazon accounts. Or, you can enter you name, email address and a password.
Next, look for your friends. Click on the two-person icon to the left of your image on the top taskbar. Then click one of the icons in the Find Friends From widget or type in the name of a colleague or friend and search for them one-by-one.
Goodreads gives users the opportunity to add a challenge question to their profile. If you select this option, then prospective friends will need to know the correct answer to your question. I recommend that you don’t take this step because you will limit the number of friends you’ll have and potential readers of your books.
