Either of those would work. ;-)"


Awesome! I finally narrowed it down and picked a winner!

We need to read 2 books for this which belong to different options OR 2 books from each option?"


2 books total. Not 2 from each option. That would be way too many books!!

I was also wondering about this. I am the type of person who is ocd about reading series in order, even when people say you don't need to. I just cannot skip the first book. That is the one that sets up an entire series.

Awesome! Thanks. Though you didn't really help with the narrowing down the possibilities. hahaha - just kidding. It will work itself out.

21757 Does The Widow of the South work? In the description, it says it is based on a true story.

Thanks!

21757 Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen

Is that enough of the bicycle showing to work for this task?

21757 Take a Risk: Go into your local library or bookstore and ask them for a book recommendation or what their favorite book is. Read that book. If they ask what your preferred genre is, tell them you are trying to expand your horizons and just want to know what they would recommend.

Australia for the win: Many strategies for winning the game of risk center around the continent of Australia. Read a book set in Australia or by an Australian author.

Build up your troops: The more troops you have, the better chance you have of winning. Read a "big book" - over 500 pages.

21757 I used to do the harder tasks/ ones I didn't like first, but that just made me procrastinate and then I wasn't reading. So now I am trying to read in whatever order I want and not care about the point values or if it is a two book task, etc.

21757 For Option 5 - The Lucy Variations main page mentions San Francisco. I haven't read this book before so I am not 100% sure that it is set in San Francisco. This is from the description: "National Book Award finalist Sara Zarr takes readers inside the exclusive world of privileged San Francisco families, top junior music competitions, and intense mentorships."

21757 I have also never finished the challenge. I use it more to force myself to read books and genres I ordinarily wouldn't. I don't worry to much about the length of books I am picking because I know I won't ever finish. I set a personal goal for myself (like complete x number of tasks or reach 500 points, etc). This challenge forces me to read more than I ordinarily do.
21757 Congrats Oma!

21757 Just to make sure I understood this right, for title I could do The Enchantress Returns which has R, S, T in the title. And for the author I could do The Testament by John Grisham whose name has M, N, O? THanks!
