Goodreads Author Program Hits 100,000 Users

Goodreads, the social network devoted to books and the people who love them, has announced via a post on their blog that their author program, which allows authors to connect with readers, show the world what they've been reading, and, of course, promote their books, has reached 100,000 verified authors.

And those 100,000 authors aren't just a bunch of amateurs, either. Authors such as Neil Gaiman, Stephen King, Margaret Atwood, Megan Abbott and John Grisham are among the many big names participating on the site.

The program offers some interesting insights on what authors are reading, what they like, what they hate, and how they're progressing on their next book. For example, Stephen King apparently loved the novel Red Moon by Benjamin Percy.

But all novelists aren't participating on Goodreads, even at 100,000 strong. What are some authors you would love to see participate in the community?
