Welcome to The StoryGraph's 2022 Onboarding Challenge! This is our third year running an onboarding challenge, and we're so excited to showcase some of our latest features!

As always, we want this challenge to be a low-pressure way for all of our users, new and old, to explore different areas of the app. This year we're delving into the stats pages, as well as our new Popular This Week section!

If you have any questions or feedback regarding this challenge, or any of the features mentioned in the prompts, please get in touch with us via the Contact Us page.

Challenge prompts

1. Read a book which fits all of the criteria from your reading profile (1919 books added)

On your Profile page, there's a box which sums up your reading habits. Maybe you mainly read fiction books which are mysterious, dark, tense, fast-paced, and 300-499 pages long.

Using any of the filter menus around the app, find a book which fits those specifications exactly. Make sure you click 'all of the selected moods' to get all three! 

2. Read a book from the Five-Star section of someone from Similar Users (2003 books added)

Head to the Community page and then to the Similar Users section. Choose someone's profile and click on their Five-Star Reads section to find your next book!

3. Read a random pick (2177 books added)

If you're a Plus user, head to your Up Next Suggestions (Home > To-Read Pile > Search and Filter > Suggestions) and read the book from your Random Pick prompt (we won't tell if you refresh it a few times!).

If you're not a Plus user and you haven't taken out your no-strings-attached, 30-day free trial, you can do so from the Manage Account page. Then you can get your random pick the same way!

If you have already taken out a free trial and you're not a Plus user, refresh your home page and read the third book which shows up in your To-Read section! Each refresh of the home page acts as a random generator for your to-read books.

4. Read a book from your 7th most-read genre in your All Time stats (2521 books added)

Head to Stats and be sure to toggle to 'Viewing stats for: All Time'. Navigate to your Genres chart and count down to the 7th genre from the top. Read any book which fits that genre!

If you don't have 7 genres in your chart, you can do the 3rd most-read. :-)

5. Read a book on your TBR by one of your most-featured authors (2406 books added)

Still in All Time Stats, look over to your To-Read stats. Find the Most Featured Authors section and read a book from your To-Read pile by one of those authors.

6. Read a book from the Popular This Week page (667 books added)

From the home page, click into Popular This Week to find your next read. There are roughly 250 books on this page, so hopefully there'll be something that catches your eye!

This page updates all the time, so be sure to check back every once in a while if you don't see anything you want to read right away!
