December 5, 2012

Happy December everyone! I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season!

New Challenges This Month:
Goodreads Choice Awards Challenge
Child of the 60's
Sing the Season
The Twelve Days of Christmas

Tip of the Month:
Did you know that there are more challenges available than what you see on the main page? To see all of the challenges in each folder, click on the folder's name. For example, if you look under "Scavenger Hunts" on the main page, you will see the first 10 challenges listed. But, there are actually 18 challenges in that folder! To see them all just click on "Scavenger Hunts" and you will see the entire list. This works for every folder on the main page.

A Note From Cherie:
Hi all! As I'm sure you've noticed, I've been pretty much MIA lately. Bree and Alina have been a huge help with keeping things running. I started this group in August before my son started school. If I had had any idea how busy I would become with his school or how quickly this group would grow, I would have thought twice about starting the group then and about what challenges I chose to post. I do not feel like I can do this group justice and keep up with things like you all deserve.

That being said, I'm going to be taking a break from the group for a while. I'll still be on the page as a mod but I just can't promise that I can be very active right now. Bree and Alina are going to be taking over all of the daily stuff including posting challenges monthly, updating participants lists and answering questions.

So, what does that mean for the group members? If there are challenges that you have questions about, please direct them to Bree or Alina. If you have an idea for a challenge, please message Bree or Alina. I may not be able to respond in a timely manner.

For the NFL challenge in particular, I have updated the remainder of the regular season schedule and plan on adding the playoff games as they are announced. However, I will not be updating the winners or your point totals. Please see the schedule thread for more information. Your point totals will all be added up and posted after the Superbowl. We'll be working on the honor system for following the rules.

I'm not disappearing completely - just taking a break for a while. :)


In Closing:
I hope everyone enjoys their December and has a wonderful holiday season, whatever holiday you celebrate.

Hi Cherie, I review every book I read but I am snowed under with review books at the moment, if you still need people to read it I will take a copy and review it but it may be some time before I actually get round to it. PM me if you need my help.

Hi everyone! Did you know we have almost 200 members?! That is absolutely crazy to me since this group was only born a month ago. It just goes to show that there are an awful lot of reading challenge junkies out there.

Many of our new members have mentioned that they liked the idea of this group because they find it difficult to finish challenges on time. As far as deadlines go, I would just like to point out that the durations posted on all of the challenges match the duration of the challenge when it was posted in its original group. That being said, please do not let a duration stop you from joining a challenge that looks fun to you in all other aspects!

The deadlines are only there to give you a guide. If you want to take a year to complete a 2 month challenge please feel free to do so. All of these challenges will remain active as long as people are interested in them. I have no plans to archive any challenges and there will never be any penalty for taking longer than the duration listed.

I hope you all have fun here!


Shirley (ShirleytheKindlereader) This is so marvelous. Thanks for making this so user friendly.
