UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8000 comments Ok, Catherine. I'll add you but no worries about posting until you've read the book. This one is more flexible.

 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) (Gatadelafuente) | 3735 comments How serendipitious that you got the Dorian Gray video this week, Dhestiny, and we're here talking about it. I'm kind of jealous right now. :)


message 59: by Catherine (new)

Catherine | 182 comments Alright, thanks!


Suzanne (Under the Covers Book blog) | 630 comments I loved The Picture of Dorian Gray i read it years ago and it has always stuck in my mind. The film is also really good as well, much better then i expected as I like the book so much.

I normally read about 20 a month so I should be okay, and I always feel like I have acheieved something if I can slot them into a challange!


message 61: by Catherine (new)

Catherine | 182 comments I own that book still and occasionally reread.

D.G. UniquelyMoi *~*Dhestiny*~* wrote: "D.G. what does C-1p stand for?"

Oh sorry, Dhestiny...I didn't check this thread since I signed up. :)

C-1p is my shelf for books that have been on my TBR for way more than a year. I challenged myself to read at least 30 from that list but I'm a bit behind. If I'm to finish by the end of the year, I need to read more of these!


message 78: by UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish, Your Humble Servant (new)

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8000 comments Oooohhhhh, ok. I figured it was a shelf designation, but wasn't sure what it meant! Thank you for clearing that up :)


message 79: by Katherine (new)

Katherine | 828 comments UniquelyMoi *~*Dhestiny*~* wrote: "Oh, and the Prize is one of my all time favorite reads."

I'm really looking forward to reading Julie Garwood. So many people have raved about her. I picked up several of her books but wanted to start with The Prize.


message 80: by Anja (new)

Anja | 36 comments The Prize is a great one to start with. I wish I could rediscover Garwood for the first time.


message 81: by UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish, Your Humble Servant (new)

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8000 comments I'm with you, Anja! Rereads are great, but there's something magical about discovering an author and her books for the first time.


message 82: by UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish, Your Humble Servant (new)

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8000 comments Katherine, I love her historicals!!!


message 83: by Melissa (last edited Sep 23, 2010 01:42AM) (new)

Melissa | 39 comments Count me in! I'll probably spell October for my challenge, since I'm enjoying the Spell September Challenge.

I thought about it, but didn't want to find 3 "E" books. I do like the way a "spell..." challenge makes one organize one's thoughts.


message 85: by UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish, Your Humble Servant (new)

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8000 comments Fortunately, I had the Prince's Trilogy to read, which is by Elizabeth Hoyt, so that one worked for me!


message 86: by UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish, Your Humble Servant (new)

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8000 comments I'll add you to the list, Melissa!

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8000 comments Nice, Bekah!


message 89: by D.G. (new)

D.G. I'm glad we can make changes in this challenge...because I'm getting nervous about mine! Anyways, I'll see how I'm doing come mid-month...and then I'll see from there!


message 90: by UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish, Your Humble Servant (new)

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8000 comments I'm right there with you, D.G. I tried to make 1 with no restrictions and 1 with restrictions because I've gotten some messages from people saying that the challenges aren't challenging enough. I want everyone to enjoy them and at the same time, feel like they're getting something they can complete.

KK (KK84) | 314 comments I'm joining you and I'm gonna do a Spell Challenge :)

That's the thing with challenges...because people read at such different paces, it may be really challenging for some people and not for others. I think the Building Your Own Challenge is great because people know what they can do and tailor it to their own pace.

I'm thinking of changing my challenge a bit already ...I'm already stressing out about several books and I wanted to enjoy myself this month. :)


message 95: by UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish, Your Humble Servant (new)

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8000 comments That's my thinking... everyone's lives are different so this makes it easy for everyone to participate.

I'll be posting something later today regarding upcoming challenges. I want people to have time to plan out their books and challenges.
