Hello, everyone! Welcome to the 4 Rs Challenge! We’re so glad to have you here.

The 4 Rs Challenge was created as a way for people to find new books and new authors, as well as a way to let bibliophiles share the love of some of their favorite books.

The way it works is this: You create a thread asking for recommendations for yourself. At the same time, you visit other people’s threads, and make recommendations for books you think *they* would like. Once you have your list of recommendations, you pick one of the books, read it, and review it! Simple!

We’ll repeat this process every three months, so that you can sign up only when you think you have the time (although we hope to see you every round!)

It’s minimal-commitment: In order to complete the challenge, you only have to read one book, plus make recommendations for others.

But hopefully it’s also maximal-enjoyment: You’ll be generating lists of potential books for yourself, broadening your literary horizons, getting to see what other people think about your favorites, and there may even be some prizes along the way!

Be sure to check out the steps for signing up and the FAQ. If you’ve got more questions, you can ask them on the forum or in the comments here.
