Yes, I forgot. I was going to have you all message me with them. Either way, post them here or message me and I will get them added to top post so there will be a master list. :) Told you all, I have been completely spacey!

I remember loving this book, but it was sooooo long ago, probably due for a reread. Especially since I think I was 10 when I first read it. Probably will make much more sense and impact now.

Ha ha! I read it when I was younger as well. I was talking with a friend who reminded me of it and I decided to reread just recently.

Task Replacement Twist: You can replace either a 5 or 10 or 15 point book with this twist. There are a lot of old discussion threads in our group. So, if you post a comment in 1, 2 or 3 of them you can change a book of your choice for the task. Here are the rules for this:

1. The thread must not have had any comments in the last 6 months.

2. The book you change must be read before October 15th.

3. If you are replacing a 5 point task, you must post on 1 outstanding thread. For a 10 point task, you must post on 2 outstanding threads. And for a 15 point task, you must post on 3 outstanding threads.

4. This can only be done to replace 1 book.

5. Make sure you post the switch when you post your points.

Okay, there are 6 days left. You can start and finish any book to replace a 5, 10 or 15 pt task!


message 26: by Michelle (new)

Michelle (vorvesm) | 132 comments Yay! Thanks Tami!!


message 27: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca (rmtb) | 62 comments Just checking, can we only do this switch once?!


message 28: by Tami (new)

Tami | 3103 comments Mod
Since there is only a few more days, as long as you started the book on or after the 25th, I say you can use this switch as many times as you want. Remember books must be over the 150 page count.
