21757 Yes I mark them with different symbols and I also have a different topic where I post the tasks/books I have completed. I find with so many books to keep track of I almost always have the same book slotted in more than 1 task. That way it makes it easier not to double post.

I totally agree Daphne on the audiobooks. I always move my audiobooks over to my ipod. Some series I actually prefer on audiobook like the In Death or Stephanie Plum books for example.

That would be fun to see how each person sets up their private groups. Here is my masthead

and how I set it up. 1 post per section 5, 10, etc. and I always include the additional requirements as well.

21757 Being retired helps a lot with that Heather :)
21757 This isn't really an ebook verification but wasn't sure where to ask it so here goes. This book shows up as a 4.1-4.3 in a series. Would this be allowed for a 25 point task?

Odd Interlude: A Special Odd Thomas Adventure

Thanks dlmrose

21757 Would this work for your Option A?

The Silent Hour (Lincoln Perry Series #4) by Michael Koryta The Silent Hour by Michael Koryta or Saint Odd (Odd Thomas, #7) by Dean Koontz

Walking in the outdoors. I wasn't sure if you wanted more than 1 person for this or if a solitary person worked.

Thanks Beth

That sure helps me keep track of all my challenges. I like being able to do all my linking ahead of time in my private group so I can just do a copy/[paste to the SRC.
21757 Just wanted to give a big shout out to our mods for another great challenge. Thank you so much for all the time you devote to this for us all to enjoy.

Also (as I pick up my pompoms) to all those getting so close to finishing!

Give us an R
Give us an E
Give us an A

21757 So true, I've read books I would have NEVER read before and really liked them. Don't be nervous, it is all for fun. We have 3 very good mods keeping us in line and all are very friendly and helpful.

21757 Welcome to the SRC SaraJ. You are going to love it here. Did you get your readerboard name yet?
Nov 22, 2015 07:32AM

21757 Faith, creating your own group helps a LOT. That way I try to include for each task any special requirements like saying the book is new to me or whatever ahead of time so that when I read the book I can just copy and paste the whole task onto SRC. I have mine split into posts by amount. One post has all the 5 pointers, another all the 10 pointers etc.

Then in another topic I put the posted tasks so that I can keep track better. I check them off as I finish them and they have been credited.

Hope that makes sense. Sounds kind of babbling to me.
