Queer Authors 50 Book Challenge
Posting Access:
Reading and sharing more books by queer authors
The point of this comm is to read works by queer authors. (Preferably fifty of them! Or more!)

There are three ways to participate in the comm. Choose what best suits you:

1. Do the 50 Books Challenge: read fifty books by queer authors in the course of a year. Read your books, count your books, and post your write-ups/reviews/impressions.

2. Do a variant of the challenge: commit to fifty books, but take more than a year if you need to. Or read fifty poems or short stories in a year. Or keep count of the books by queer authors that you read in a year. Or some other variant that makes sense to you and pushes you to read queer authors.

3. Skip the counting, but post recommendations and/or reviews, and otherwise encourage people to read works by queer authors.

Basically, we just want people to read works by queer authors. We’re pretty open to any degree of participation that furthers that end. We don't even care which books you read, so long as they're written by queer authors. Seriously, you can read fun books. Easy books. Books that make you happy. Books that get your kink on. They just have to be by queer authors.

Before posting, please read the Frequently Asked Questions: why people do the challenge, who/what "counts", how to tag your posts, and other ways to earn the everlasting affection of the mod.

(No, seriously: please go read the FAQ.)

Discussion and disagreement are welcome, but please treat one another with respect.

Who can join?

The community is open and unmoderated. For now.

How do I contact the mod?
