In August 2012, our company Book Riot successfully funded a $25,000 Kickstarter campaign for "Start Here: Read Your Way Into 25 Amazing Authors," a survey of works from a wide range of genres, from classics to contemporary fiction to comics (you can buy it here!). It was a learning experience, and one that Book Riot will certainly repeat.
