Colleen (On Semi Hiatus until Jan 23) Scidmore (colleensreadingadventures) | 964 comments You have some good books planned as well Melany. I have a couple of those in my TBR pile. Sorry I misspelled your name in my previous post, I hate auto correct sometimes! :)


message 12: by Melany (new)

Melany (snowborn) | 839 comments Lol its alright technology has been corrected my name my whole life! If you want to read any of the books I have planned we could do a buddy read!


Colleen (On Semi Hiatus until Jan 23) Scidmore (colleensreadingadventures) | 964 comments That sounds great Melany! I think I would be interested in a Darker Shade of Magic. How about closer to the middle of the month, I have to get a copy and I've got some other reads to catch up on. How about the 11th? Does that work for you?


message 14: by Melany (new)

Melany (snowborn) | 839 comments That works for me!


Colleen (On Semi Hiatus until Jan 23) Scidmore (colleensreadingadventures) | 964 comments Ok I will ask to get a thread posted for us for the 11th. Looking forward to it. :)


message 16: by Melany (new)

Melany (snowborn) | 839 comments Cool thank you!!


message 17: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments A Darker Shade of Magic is one of out books for the month, so there's a thread for it already in book of the month folder. You guys can use it whenever you're ready to read. :)


Colleen (On Semi Hiatus until Jan 23) Scidmore (colleensreadingadventures) | 964 comments Oh great thanks Courtney!

From what I understand you can read from any of the categories multiple times if you want and it will count, so you don't necessarily have to read all the categories listed.

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments Elizabeth, are you wanting to join the challenge?

NP. :)


Colleen (On Semi Hiatus until Jan 23) Scidmore (colleensreadingadventures) | 964 comments I started a book last month that would fit In one of the categories and finished over the last couple days, read 185 pages starting 2/1, can I still use it Courtney?


message 29: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments You can count it for the pages read this month, Colleen. :)


Colleen (On Semi Hiatus until Jan 23) Scidmore (colleensreadingadventures) | 964 comments Ok. Thanks Courtney :)


message 31: by Melany (new)

Melany (snowborn) | 839 comments Courtney could I use a book with 96 pages or does it have to be 100 pages to qualify?


message 32: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments It needs to be 100 pages to count for a point, but you can count the pages for a shorter one.


message 33: by Melany (new)

Melany (snowborn) | 839 comments Ok thank you!


message 34: by Melany (new)

Melany (snowborn) | 839 comments Another question! Can use one of the Sherlock Holmes book for "a book that was adapted for film"?


message 35: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments Yes, that's fine.

message 38: by Melany (new)

Melany (snowborn) | 839 comments Mine is coming along OK, a little slower then I would like. How about yours


message 39: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments I think I might possibly make it through my planned reading. Possibly...


Colleen (On Semi Hiatus until Jan 23) Scidmore (colleensreadingadventures) | 964 comments That's awesome Courtney!

I'm in the same boat as you Melany, OK, but slower than I like.
Actually you are getting a lot accomplished Melany. You are doing really good!


message 41: by Melany (new)

Melany (snowborn) | 839 comments Lol thanks! But it's mostly because I'm reading short books

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments I hope you're both able to get through some good books this month!


message 43: by Melany (new)

Colleen (On Semi Hiatus until Jan 23) Scidmore (colleensreadingadventures) | 964 comments I'm going to start A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic, #1) by V.E. Schwab in just a bit. If you are still able to read it Melany I guess we communicate under its link in BOTM.
