Our Standard Challenge Rules:
✎ When you sign up for the challenge, please post some kind of a place saver so that I can link you up under the participants. Once you have decided on your books, just edit that post so that the link under the Participants List will go to your list!

✎ When you finish reading a book, please edit your post and add the date completed.

✎ You may only use each book once in the challenge, but feel free to use the same titles in other challenges!

✎ When you complete the challenge, please copy and paste your entire, completed list as a brand new message to make it easier for everyone to see what you've read, and to have your name marked as complete/finished/done/however you want to show you read them all!.

✎ If you decide that you've bitten off more than you can chew, feel free to let me know you'd like to downgrade, or even back out of the challenge. Please do not delete the post. It will mess up the links to other participants' postings if you do.

Happy Reading!
