There are several ways you can "work your journal". The key is have the final number of books read be able to be divided by 18.
✱ Complete one, two, three or four full lists from below (1X18, 2X18, 3X18, 4X18).
✱ Choose two lists & complete half (9) OR complete half from all four lists (2X9, 4X9).
✱ Complete one or two full lists AND two half lists (1X18 or 2X18 AND 2X9).

Challenge Rules:All forms of books are accepted as long as they are 100 pages or more. When posting updates of completed books, please include a link to the title and author’s name, along with the date you finished reading the book. When you have completed the challenge, please copy and paste your entire challenge and repost in a new message, letting us know it is completed.

Jan | 11198 comments Reserved for Questions

Question: Jan, can you visit the same place with different books. For example, I know I have around 5 books that will take place in Chicago, Illinois.
Answer: Within a section you can only visit a location once. But you could use the same location once for Country, once for city and once for state.

1. Ohio - The Girl Who Wrote in Silk by Kelli Estes 03/01/18


I read this back in 2016. I really liked this book. It takes place in Washington (state) on Orca Island, not in Ohio. How'd you like it?


message 45: by Patrizia, Contributor (new)

Patrizia | 932 comments A question. I'm reading a book set in a fictional place in California: could I use it for the state?


message 46: by Jan, Moderator (new)

Jan | 11198 comments You sure can Patrizia! Since California is a real place you can use it for state or country.

Louise | 157 comments Hi Jan
I just realized that the rules indicate that a book can only be used once. Just to clarify - I can’t use the same book for the city and country list?


message 50: by Jan, Moderator (new)

Jan | 11198 comments That is correct Louise - you will have to choose where to put each book. It can only be used once. I know that makes it harder!
