20.1 - Most Improved Player - Stacy CT's task: All Things Peru!
This summer I'll be celebrating my 30th birthday with a trip to Peru. Help me celebrate by reading a book from ONE of the following options:

1. Read a book set in Peru or written by a Peruvian author (by birth or residence). Required: If the connection is unclear, please explain how your book fits the task when you post.

2. Read a book by an author who turns 30 this year (born in 1983) OR a book that has a 3 AND a 0 in the total number of pages.

NOTE: ebooks without print versions cannot be used for tasks requiring a specific number of pages. If you read an ebook or listen to an audiobook, use the page count for the mass market paperback if one exists. If there is no mass market paperback edition, use the paperback edition and if no paperback is available use the hardcover edition.

Required: If using the author option, provide a link to confirm the author's age if their birthdate is not present on GR. If using the page number option with a non-print book edition (i.e., an ebook or audiobook) you must provide a link to the edition that you read as well as the print edition for verification purposes when you post.

3. Going to see Macchu Picchu in Peru is one of the things on my bucket list. Read a book related to one of the items on your personal bucket list. Required: Identify how the book you choose is related to the item on your personal bucket list.

Required: State which option you used and any other required information when you post.

That's fine. Just be sure to provide a link to a page that lists her birthday (I see it's listed on her FB page) when you post.

I think Stacy may be on vacation.

In answer to your question: Yes, Cassandra Rose Clarke will work for option 2. Just make sure you include the link you gave in message 13 so DLMRose can verify her birthdate.
