Hey, Bad Book Challengers: Find Your Friends!

Greetings, Challengers.  Greg here.  I'm a Community Development & Programming Librarian with NFPL and your official Bad Book Challenge guy.

As you know, it's July now and the the challenge is well underway.  If you're reading this, you're probably neck-deep in vampires, angsty romance, awkward prose and who-knows-what-else.  Kudos to you if you've made it this far. 

Before you go any farther, I wanted to remind you that you don't have to do it alone!  Beanstack let's you find your friends so you can track their challenge history, see what badges they've gotten and even create a leaderboard if you're feeling up for a little friendly competition.  This page tells you all you need to know about being more friendly with your friends on Beanstack—or, better yet, you could watch this video:

But what if your friends aren't on Beanstack?  Now's your chance to remind them that they really should be.
