Goodreads Tip: Adding Rereads

goodreads1

Every now and then I see people on Twitter looking for answers on how to get a reread to count towards their reading challenge for the year. As book nerds there are occasions when we read a book for the second time and we want it to count towards our goals for the year. After reading Anna and the French Kiss for the 3rd or 4th time I knew I had to find a way to get my rereads to count and I have.

Here are all the steps I have taken to get all my rereads to count towards my challenge goals.

1) Search for the book. Enter the name of the book in the search bar as you normally would.
GR1

 

2) Click on the book you have reread or will reread. Whether you are starting your reread or have finished it, you need to click on the book title of the book you have already read.
GR2

 

3) Click on Other Editions. This will bring up a list of options that is vital for you being able to add a different version of the same book.

4) Select the new edition you want to add. You can pick any version of the book that hasn’t been marked as read. It is important that you DO NOT click on the “Switch to This Edition”  link. That will change the version of the book you have already read to the new one you selected.GR4

 

5) Select “Review this edition”. After the initial book info you will see a line that says “My Review Review this edition | Switch to this edition”. You will want to click on “Review this edition”. It is important that you DO NOT click on the “Switch to This Edition”  link. That will change the version of the book you have already read to the new one you selected.GR5

 

6) Proceed as you normally would. You can now mark the book as read with dates, as currently reading with the reading start date, to read, whatever you need to. The new version will now show up in your Goodreads Challenge when you have finished it.GR6

 

And there you have it. My 6 steps to adding a reread so it counts towards your Goodreads Challenge. I hope it makes sense. If it doesn’t feel free to contact me by email, over Twitter or email me. Or just comment at the bottom.

May Designs – Notebook/Agenda
I’m about 100% obsessed with May Designs products. I have a few notebooks that I currently use for blogging and an agenda that I use for work. I also have purchased the note cards as well to send out with blog giveaway wins. The options and designs are pretty endless. And I think everyone needs a pretty notebook when “working”

Goodreads Reading Challenge
For the past few years I have failed miserably at my Goodreads Reading Challenge for the year. I always think I will read more than I do. Add vacations in with little reading time and that fact that I’m forced to work and am not able to read all the books, it is a hard task to accomplish. As of right now I’m good and I hope to keep it that way.

I want this entire outfit. That is all really.
