message 20: by Lanelle (new)

Lanelle | 3082 comments I'm looking at the scoring of Connie's The Wizard of Oz. I only gave my reading of that book 5 extra points for being The Wizard of Oz. I didn't add points for the main character being named Dorothy. Should I add 5 points to my score, and should Connie add 5 points for the book being made into a movie?


message 21: by Ava Catherine (last edited Oct 24, 2016 09:27PM) (new)

Ava Catherine | 4258 comments Lanelle, you should certainly get 5 extra points for having a main character named Dorothy.

I decided to go with the task Ruby Slippers instead of the one about the book being made into a movie because my copy of the book has red shoes on the cover, therefore, earning 5 extra points for having red shoes on the cover. My understanding of the rules was that I had to select one task for the book and then apply extra points if possible.
