Janice (jamasc) | 48826 comments When you have finished your book, post the Tributee, the criteria, and link to the book.

eg:

Harper Lee: Classic - The Mystery of Edwin Drood

This may all change once j'mom posts the scoring criteria. Regardless, I will update message 2 and possibly 3 with our ongoing progress.
