Karen - Sorry, meant to message you back. You asked about the URL to use for mini-challenges... What you need to do is right click on the time/date for the message and then click to copy the link. Then paste it on the mini-challenge link place. That will link the mini-challenge directly to your response. I hope that makes sense. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Karen B. (raggedy11) | 308 comments I'm so confused again. sorry about that. How do I add Oct. 2016 to the title of the thread? So I add the url for the page and the date/time of the message?

I changed that for you.

No. For the URL you right click on the date stamp of the message. When you do that, a menu comes up. Select the option "Copy Link Address". That is the URL you will use for the challenge. For example (using your hour 12 mini challenge). Right click on: Apr 23, 2016 04:29PM . When you do that, select "Copy Link Address". Then you would go to where the mini-challenge is and paste that link there. For this example that link would be: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

I think that actually I created this thread for you originally and so you can't change it, only me. If you want to create a thread for yourself, however, you would be able to change that thread name.

Karen B. (raggedy11) | 308 comments Challenge 3:
bookish other half

I don't have one bookish other half; but I really relate to female sleuths who have cats and the cats help them solve the the mystery

Karen B. (raggedy11) | 308 comments I am getting so frustrated because it seems most of the mini challenges involve posting pictures and I don't post photos on the computer.

Sorry about that, Karen, though I understand that. I don't do those mini-challenges either. But don't let it get you down. Just enjoy what you can do and your books.

I certainly understand that. Everyone needs to vent from time to time.

Karen B. (raggedy11) | 308 comments I loved the hour 15 mini challenge... to get up and move for five minutes. It was great! I even set the timer. I know I will do this again as the night progresses!

This seems like a challenge that should be next year! What a great idea! ~Ashley
