Item #3: Read a book by an author who has interacted with you on some kind of social media platform or by letter. Examples include responses on twitter, Facebook, Goodreads, discussion forums, email or by snail mail. You must post screenshot or photo of that author contact. This is a two step item. Step 1: Starting today, reach out to an author whose work you want to read. Step 2: Once you have gotten your response, pick a book by that author and start reading.

Time to start reaching out to your favorite authors. Retweets, favorites, likes, and replies all count as interactions.

NOTE: This item is intended to be something you get starting today. In other words, you should pick new interactions --dated from today on -- rather than past interactions. We will consider past interactions but the goal is to actually get you to reach out to authors specifically in order to complete this item.
