AmyK (yakyma) | 1044 comments Great Job everybody. I only managed 2 rainbows and I don't want to think about the color of book covers for a long time to come.


message 34: by jaxnsmom (new)

jaxnsmom | 8271 comments Yeah, now you just want to know what letter of the alphabet everything starts with :)

AmyK (yakyma) | 1044 comments How long should I wait to post annoying songs for the ABC's


message 36: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 50025 comments Ummm.... indefinitely? LOL!


message 37: by Debra (new)

Debra (debra_t) | 6542 comments Now I have the ABC song in my head!

As far as rainbow books, I think I've been damaged for life. Now I'm noticing book colors all the time, and then I remember I don't have to anymore.


message 38: by Ava Catherine (last edited Jan 06, 2013 02:22AM) (new)

Ava Catherine | 4258 comments I hope this will not happen with the alphabet! Oh mercy me!

But I have already started cataloging author's names alphabetically when I see them! It is a sickness!


message 39: by Lara (new)

Lara | 1426 comments Fortunately for me, in some other group challenges individual letters have been used before. The alphabet is definitely more extreme, but I notice it seems popular (in various iterations) this year. So, I'm hoping not to judge every book by how it fits with my alphabet challenge...


message 40: by Beth (new)

Beth (eparks4232) | 1956 comments I reshelved everything to fit the challenge. My husband thinks I'm nuts.


message 41: by Sam (new)

Sam (ecowitch) | 2148 comments I'm thinking about doing the same Beth so don't worry you are not alone! ;-)


message 42: by Lara (new)

Lara | 1426 comments Beth, rainbow or alphabet? At least the rainbow would be attractive :-)


message 43: by Beth (last edited Jan 06, 2013 08:33AM) (new)

Beth (eparks4232) | 1956 comments High Octane alphabet. Which is nightmare when I unearth a book I'd put somewhere other than the bookshelf, cause everything then has to move.

Well, that's a lot of reading. I understand your desire to keep everything in order and together. I'm having trouble remembering what books I'm reading for what challenge and we're only one week into the year ;-)


message 45: by Ava Catherine (new)

Ava Catherine | 4258 comments Spreadsheets really help me with these challenges. I would be lost without them. My husband has convinced me to back up every week now that Jaxnsmom and Almeta got the FBI virus. He is a stickler for backing up the home computer, but I just never got into the habit with my laptop.
