Angela Sunshine (AngelaSunshine) Ground Rules and Notes:
1. The Challenge begins at 12:00 A.M. local time on 1 April 2013 and ends at 11:59 P.M. local time on 30 June 2013; for a book to count for the challenge, it cannot be more than 1/2 read before 12:00 AM on 1 April 2013.
2. This Challenge is just for fun, so make sure you enjoy yourself and all the books you will be reading!
3. All books must be classified as Young Adult or Juvenile Fiction. If you local library classifies the book you chose as juvenile-young adult, then the book may be included.
4. All books must be at least 100 pages long to count for any of the tasks.
5. Re-reads are NOT allowed unless it falls into one of the following categories: it is a book you never finished, it is a book you didn't like but want to give another chance. The goal is to try new things, not reread old ones, but if you think it fits or feel it's reasonable, it probably is; just ask. :)
6. Audio books and electronic books (unabridged), such as Kindle, all count for this Challenge. Page counts will be according to the GoodReads page count.
7. When reporting completion of tasks, please link the title and author if possible. Also include the number of pages for the first edition listed on Goodreads (as was done in the first challenge). The point-count Leaderboard will be updated as often as I am able or as necessary. The leaderboard will list participants in alphabetical order. I will "bold" both the point leader and the page leader. If you find discrepancies in the point totals, please notify me. If you change a book to a different task, please notify me.
8. All tasks will be worth 10 points each, for a possible total of 260 points.
9. If you choose the "on the cover" option for any of the tasks, you must link the book's cover when posting.

Hyperlinking the books through the "add book/author" feature is greatly appreciated.

It's impossible not to think of the circus without all it's smells. Everything from animal scents to popcorn to body odor to the smell of the machinery. It's just assaults your nose.
