Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4391 comments Laura: Can you confirm that you started We Were Liars in March for Sarah on the review thread as it says you started it in February and we'll get points taken if you don't?

Laura | 620 comments Jackie wrote: "Laura: Can you confirm that you started We Were Liars in March for Sarah on the review thread as it says you started it in February and we'll get points taken if you don't?"

Yes, of course! I started reading it at 1am the 1st of March (more or less, I don't really remember). Maybe because I'm not in the USA it didn't get the time right? It usually happens to me. I also finished it the 2nd and it says I did it the 1st.


message 32: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4391 comments Yeah, it's weird like that. I'm on the east coast in the US and if I mark a book as currently reading on the 1st at 1 my time it says I started on the 29th because GR runs on PST.
