So, if you join in November, anything you read that FITS a task can count towards the challenge as long as you read it AFTER September 15th.

8. Above all, remember this challenge is supposed to be FUN, a good way to tackle some of your TBR list, and to expand your horizons.

(The next three are specific genres that some people probably never read, so that is why I made them 5 pt tasks. Hopefully everyone can find something they would like to read for them.)

7. Need a Winter Pick Me Up: Read a self help book.

8. National Comic Book Day: Read a graphic novel.

Hey Nitzan! Welcome to the challenge!

There are four different threads that we use during the challenge. This is the thread where you post which books you'd like to read for the tasks. You can change your mind anytime you want--the list isn't permanent.

When you finish a task, you post the book you read in the Leader Board and Completed Tasks thread so that you can claim your points. If you have any questions about the challenge or if you aren't sure if a book you're thinking about can count for a task, you can ask that in the Questions, Task Help and General Discussions thread. The other thread, Important Announcements and Updates is where Tami posts changes that may occur during the challenge, such as a special surprise twist where one task will change and you can read a different type of book for it, but you usually only have a week to claim the points. This is also the thread where the White Elephant list will be posted for task 10.4.

I hope that helps. Have fun!

Gail, it's just like doing an excel spreadsheet, but one that you can easily share via a link if you want. Its located under the Google Drive on your google account if you have one. You can take a look at mine or anyone else's if you want. I just keep track of the tasks, titles, page #s and points with it and let it do all the math for me on the point totals so I don't have to double check it all the time.
