Connie N. | 3291 comments Huh, I think I asked opposing questions in that last post.

Let me be clearer (since I'm still not sure)...does the entire title word need to be found in only one holiday word?

Nawww.. I liked the "yes" answer so much, and I was going to do what I need to do at work: don't think, just do what you've told to do, even if you're not sure if it's right or makes sense :D


Can we use words that are already there? Like "new" from new years? and, would words with this thing ' count, like, "it's"?

And can I use the same word twice when using different books?

I think if challenges are too hard, no one wants to play. Plus, you can find the words from the letters easily but it's not that easy to find a book with those words that you want to read! OHHHH I just thought of another challenge! 💡

Welcome Agnieszka!

I love word games too! At first I thought I would not do well but I read a series and most of it worked. Plus there's so many letters too!
Enjoy!!!

I already have another one ready when this challenge is completed. Sharon came up with a great idea with this challenge.
