21757 I will be reading through the Geronimo Stilton collection with my son during the Fall challenge and wanted to know if I could use these books in the challenge?

21757 Would A Game of Thrones work for Option D (it's a big book with 800 pages so that's quite intimidating as well as I've been avoiding it since it's a genre I never read) and Option F (I don't read 'fantasy' genre often and never read anything with 'dragon' genre)?

21757 My copy of The Twelve (ISBN 978-1-4091-3795-5) has 740 pages.

My copy also has a different cover to what appears in Goodreads under the same ISBN. This is the cover of my copy: http://www.amazon.ca/Twelve-Justin-Cr...

Would it be possible to make the change? Thank you!
