AUTHOR PROFILE, AUTHOR DASHBOARD, AND WIDGETS
All members of Book2read have regular reader profiles where they can review books, add friends, and post information about themselves. When an author signs up for Book2read, he or she begins with this basic user profile.
For any book listed in the Book2read catalog, you can click on the author's name to find the author profile. This page lists all of the author's published work, whether he or she is a member of Book2read or not. When an author joins the Author Program we merge his or her user profile with the author profile. Becoming a Goodreads Author carries special privileges, such as the ability to edit profile information, add book cover images, post events, write a blog, upload videos, and start featured author groups.
