An *ACE-Author** allows you to choose an author featured in the month you're selecting and read anything written by them. You have one (1) of these.

A *JOKER* allows you to read any book in the series of a Favorite Book posted for that month. You have one (1) of these.

ADDED September 12, 2012
A *MAKE-UP MONTH* allows you to skip a month and make-up it up the next month by reading two books from that month's selection. You have two (2) of these. Luckily, you can use it in advance. Meaning, if you know next month is going to be rough, you can use it and read two books.
