---------------------------------------------------------

Rules of the challenge
Books must be at least 100 pages in length
A book counts for only ONE task per challenge (but feel free to use it for other challenges ... in the past or in another group).
Re-reads are fine, as long as you actually read the entire book
Book should be finished within the time-frame of the challenge.
Any format ("dead tree," e-book, audio...) is fine.

If you want acknowledgement that you have completed the challenge you MUST include the date you finished reading each book.

As always, have fun!
