So, Cynthia, if you finish the challenge early, and still have time, can you go back and redo challenges and count the points? It just seems to me that th..."

I thought that the winners were just anyone who finished the challenge... That was my understanding, though I could be wrong!

1218 Sirius is okay, but not my favorite. I like the whole competition in the 4th book, but I like the horocrux twist in the 6th... SUCH GOOD BOOKS! I wish she would put them on the Kindle so e-book readers can have better access to them!

1218 I will try to do that... I am not to sure about the whole camera thing... I think my sister knows how. Can I take it with an i-Phone and post it? Anyone more technologically advanced then me know?

1218 WAIT, Donna Jo, are you done with the challenge? OMG, that is incredible... only half-way done and you're finished! Way to go!

1218 Order of the phoenix is my bottom. Prisoner of Azkaban is my second. That is so crazy!

1218 I GOT IT TODAY AND IT IS FABULOUS!!! I love it!!! SBG, I didn't realize that there was a bit of red on your design. I love it!!! I can't wait to fill it up with books! I showed it to one of my friends and she loved it as well!!! YAY!

1218 I never said that you didn't put yourself through school. I was referencing someone else who I know... you I don't know. When you said: "However, it is always rude to call someone stupid or "dum," no matter how you slice it. As a phd student in biochemistry" it sounded to me like waving credentials... I am sorry I was wrong... or rather, glad that I was wrong. Whatever. If you want to talk about books, then talk about books. As far as I can tell, you have made 4 comments, and none have been about books. So pick a book and start discussing it. If you want to talk about Angels & Demons, the book you tried to nominate, I would be more then happy to discuss it with you. Unlike many members here, I actually liked it and I am excited for the movie to come out. It was a good nom, in light of the movie, but it was too late... That is all I am saying.

Wow, I have never met anyone that didn't like POA. That is interesting... I didn't like OP. aside from that, our lists are almost identical...

LOL, good suggestion. I think that because of how the first post is set up, it is easy to look over the part where Lori said that it was closed (that seems to be in the indented space) and to just see the nominations. However, Lori did say that even when she deleted it in the past, people still posted their nominations... I don't really think that there is anything that can be done to stop it other then to lock the thread and make it closed for posting, which Lori also said she didn't want to do... is voting over?

Oh, *runs to corner, hides and blushes* Umm, sorry... I have a major accounting exam in three hours and I decided that it would be a good idea to read a book for the Spring Challenge rather then study, or even sleep, last night, so I was perhaps a little jumpy... sorry for biting off your head. God, I shouldn't even be on this site right now... must study!

That is all that I was saying... I wasn't saying that she was dumb or anything. Her's wasn't even the one I commented after. After the first one, I got tired of telling people who probably wouldn't look back and see later that they made a mistake. I am sorry if I came across as bitchy... I didn't mean to.

1218 I am not saying that it isn't a place to have fun and post and not be on their guard... I am just saying that it is a book website. So most of us have the basis of liking to read. It isn't a chore to pick up a book and read. I mean, for HP fans, there are messages boards, anime fans, there are websites... for anything EVER CREATED there are websites and you find the website that relates to your interest. You don't need to flash around a phd to make yourself seem smart. I understand mistakes, I have made them. I have made them on this website. I guess that people flashing their credentials has always been one of my biggest pet peeves... can't really explain it. Maybe because the smartest guy I ever knew couldn't go to college because he couldn't afford it... or because the dumbest girl I knew kept on going to school until she got a phd on daddy's dime because she wasn't ready to enter the real world. In my experience, having a degree means very little. I have only responded to one person about there posting after the deadline and my exact words were "Quick, take it down before someone else sees." I don't think that was in the least bit hostile... but who knows, maybe it was.

I am sorry that you feel like everyone was so rude to you, but seriously... the PHD... I think that it is safe to assume that almost everyone on the site is at least a little bit smart, or they wouldn't be on a BOOK website. Having a PHD doesn't prove anything. Some of the smartest people I know have not had PHDs... I have also met a few idiots who have PHDs. I am sorry that your feelings got hurt... but you weren't being targeted for anything.

1218 I am such like a little kid at Christmas time... I made my first order about five days ago, but every day I check my mail and then I get a little bit angry, and I am like "Why is it taking so long?" and I have to remind myself that it has only been five days... Anyone else?

I know... that really is funny! I had forgotten about that!

50 pt task - Plum Spooky by Janet Evanovich and The Grand Finale by Steffie Hall ( This was totally coincidental for me as I read both of these in the last two weeks!)

Someone can correct me if I am wrong but I think that you have to have read one of those books since the 50 point task was named... I think that is what Cynthia decided for the 50 point task... one of the books could have been read before it was posted, but one had to have been started after it was announced
