Questions or problems with completed task posts will be posted here.

If you have questions about your points on the Readerboard:

1. Make sure that the Readerboard has been updated through the post that you are concerned about.
2. Please check your math.
3. Check to see if one of your posts is listed in this thread with a question. If so, please make a NEW POST in the Completed tasks thread to clear up the question. DO NOT go back and edit the original post. I will not go backwards in the completed task thread to pick up points.
4. To avoid further questions/problems, please refer to the TASK DESCRIPTIONS and the POSTING REQUIREMENTS.

Thank you for helping keep the record keeping for the challenge as manageable as possible.

task 5.1 Mercy Kill was written by Lori G. Armstrong not J.A. Konrath and you have claimed Mercy Kill again for task 10.10. Did you mean to post a different book for 5.1?

Yes 5.1 was supposed to be Whiskey Sour by J.A. Konrath

I don't know what happened there. I will repost 5.1

Thanks - bad start to the season!

Derek Landy is not shown as being a Goodreads author.

If you are claiming a BB ticket, you need to say this explicitly in your post, not just include it in your totals at the bottom of the post, and link to the edition you read that establishes the length of the book. The edition shown in your post is to an audiobook - if you listened to an audiobook, you need to also include a link to the paper edition used to establish the length of the book.

When you are claiming a BB ticket, you need to say that specifically in your post, not just indicate a number of pages. When we are having to move through many, many posts, and trying to keep records as accurately as possible, it helps to be able to look for the "magic words" - many people list the number of pages of their books, regardless of how many there are and regardless of whether they're claiming a BB ticket.

If you want to claim a BB ticket, please say it - "claiming BB ticket. 603 page book." Otherwise we will not necessarily pick it up.

You have linked to an ebook edition with 385 pages. If you read an edition with 500 or more pages, please link to that edition to claim a BB ticket.


Angie (Literary Labors) (angie) | 126 comments I didn't see my name under the GR Author Ticket readerboard. I mentioned in my first completed tasks post (message 21) that the book I read was written by a GR author.

task 25.3 asks Pick 2 different options and (1) read a book for each, OR (2) read one book that satisfies both options. For the one book option, the book must be at least 400 pages long.

Regarding the one book option: you only indicated one option in your post. If your book fits another option please repost with the required information

Task 25.3- option 2 requires the numbers 6, 7, or 8 in the title, so "One" doesn't work, but it does work because the book was published in August. No need to repost

If you are claiming BB tickets, you need to specifically say this in your post, not just list page length. When we are trying to deal with the many, many posts that are made during the course of the challenge, we need to look for the "magic words," rather than trying to figure out if this is what you are doing.

It's enough to say "claiming BB ticket," although putting the info in bold is very helpful!

This post included Goodreads Author Oliver Sacks but it's not reflected in the readerboard listing of Goodreads Authors. This is the only Goodreads Author I've read thus far.

I'll bold Goodreads Author next time.

Thanks!
