Coralie, could you please include how the Chain is formed, ie.

The Dispossessed
They Do It with Mirrors
etc

Also, just checking if you have completed this (ie. you won't add more to this Chain) as you can still work on it for the rest of the year...? Max Bonus is for 36+ books on Chain...?

I have added how the chain is formed.
Yes, it is finished. I have other longer chains that I seem to add to every day. It is nice to also have some compact complete ones.

Thanks. It was a lot of work to put together, and then I almost didn't finish because I didn't want to read one or two of the books.
