Gisbelle | 27299 comments Great Lindsey! Now that you are the team leader, please keep your teammates posted when we finally start the challenge.

If you guys are not sure of anything, please don't hesitate to ask. Post your questions in Q & D thread since I might not check each team thread all the time.

Thanks guys!

Yoly | 696 comments Hello girls: to the "test's challenge" I'm going to read "dexter is delicious". Is a horror, mystery, thriller. With blood in the cover. Is about a serial killer.

If you don't find a book to the challenge you can read the first dexter's book, if you like.


message 16: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments Dear All

Please make sure you check Now Showing... to get the general ideas how the challenge is going to be like.

Don't forget to choose your team leader. I hope each team will have a team leader by Wednesday.

You may need to PM your teammates who haven't posted in the team yet.


message 17: by Purvika (new)

Purvika (frostybells) Umm is horror a must ... :-\


message 18: by Yoly (new)

Yoly | 696 comments No, you can make points with other things like the cover, names, publication year or location.

BTW Dexter is not a horror book is more like a mystery book, is about a serial killer (who works with police) and just kill other killers.


message 19: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments yes, like Yoly said. It is near impossible to get full score.

Hey everyone,

Sorry I have not been on, been busy with classes and work/internship. But I'm looking for a book now. I will have to read a shorter one because of all the books I have to read for both on here and for school.

You guys are doing great so far with picking books. Just remember we can also get points depending on how fast you read the book.

Have fun reading! The books you have picked look great.

Team Points
Extra points will be awarded to the team if everyone in the team finishes their book within:

Day 1 or 2 = 3pt
Day 3 or 4 = 2pt
Day 5 or 6 = 1pt
Day 7 = no extra point
