Ok, so I tried to make this one about song titles and you may notice that I'm a little obsessed with Bruno Mars. :) But I ran out of steam on that note (pun intended) about halfway through and just came up with random stuff like I usually do. So here goes...

YOU MUST POST YOUR TASK LIST!
1. The challenge runs from January 1 – March 31, 2012 and you MUST post your task list! (Don't worry if you don't have all of your books chosen yet, you can put TBD, or something similar, in for a task without a book.)
2. Anyone may join in at any time, and count any books read between January 1 and March 31. All participants must post their book list in this thread.
3. Books do not have to be specifically from Red Dress Ink.
4. You may only complete each task ONCE. Likewise, books may only count for ONE task.
5. To post points: Post the point value and number of the task you completed, as well as the book you read for the task. It also helps (me) to post your total points as well.
6. For multiple-book tasks: Books do not need to be read back-to-back, or in any specific order, but you must have read ALL the books for a task in order to be awarded points for it (no "half points").
7. Audiobooks and e-books are acceptable to use for challenges, as long as they are the complete and unabridged versions.
8. Books started before October 1 may count for any task in the challenge, as long as you are no more than halfway through the book as of October 1.
9. You may change the books on your list at any time however; changing books for tasks already completed is NOT permitted.
10. Re-reads of books are okay, unless the task specifically says otherwise.
11. The first person to complete every task in the challenge is the winner. If no one completes every task in the challenge, then the people with the top 3 scores will be declared the winners.
12. Prizes for the top 3 finishers:
First Place – A $10 Amazon.com or barnesandnoble.com gift certificate
Second Place – Two credits from either BookMooch or Paperbackswap (your choice)
Third Place – A book from my PBS/BM inventory

Read for a book club zzzzz. I don't mind sort of self help/self discovery books but I need a little humor in them.
