SELECT genre, COUNT(genre) "genre_count" FROM books WHERE genre NOT NULL GROUP BY genre;

But you get a valid response from the query? I'd try it myself but you didn't link to the challenge.

I think you mean:

Select genre, count(genre) as "genre_count" from books Group by genre Having genre IS NOT NULL;

No that didn't work either. Did anyone get this? I'm stuck.....
