Noelene | 327 comments Can we overlap books from other challenges. A bit pushed for time in 2017.

Yes that's the best way to do it Noelene :) As long as they fit the criteria you can have one book which might fit 3 different challenges :)

Kathryn | 3003 comments OK, I'm in (and will definitely be looking at all the books I've already slotted in to other challenges!), but can anyone tell me what the animal is on the front of The Eye of the Sheep by Sofie Laguna The Eye of the Sheep? I would have assumed it's meant to be a sheep, but it surely looks like a dog to me...

The Art of Racing in the Rain is a strange name for what it is - I know the first time I heard the title I automatically thought I wouldn't be interested. I can't remember what made me look at it more closely, actually!

I've got everything in a Word doc at the moment, but I find a thread is also helpful because then I can just click on names of books/authors to find out what I need. I can't click on my Word doc - unless I hyperlinked everything, and that's far too much trouble! Although...that's just made me think...maybe that would work... But ultimately I'm probably still going to have to set up a thread somewhere...

On every book's profile Sharon, if it has been given an award it will show - here's an example - The Eye of the Sheep - look down the information part of the book, and above the other editions and if there's an award it'll be there. So just check out any of your books to see what one has an award :) With the second one, just one that you know has been selling well is the way I look at it. A popular, often talked about like - Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train, To Kill a Mockingbird

Does that help?

Carolyn | 6397 comments Brenda you truly are a temptress! I was planning to cut down a little on challenges next year but this is hard to resist!

I'm in, but will definitely cross-fertilise from other challenges and fill in missing books as I go rather than find them all now if that's OK.
