For example if I read The Ghost Brigades by John Scalzi which was book of month in May in July or August, can I use it for an energy cell?

I read Incident at Tri-Planetia and went with the 'tri in the title' option. It was an ok science fiction story, not great but certainly not bad, and short enough that I was fine with it being just ok heh. Think I stole the idea from someone else here but can't remember who...

There's a pulp Perry Rhodan book called Tri-Planets, or something like that. I found a copy on eBay.

Amy | 401 comments Really looking forward to joining this challenge next year. At first I didn't have clue what was going on, but I've been following the main thread for a few months now so I think (hope) I've got the idea now.

Just a couple of questions, can you just sign up to either team at the beginning of the year and off you go? Do other people read with a plan of attack, or do they just read and try and get some points in there? And, is it sad that I’m looking forward to this almost more than Christmas? :)


Falynn - the TyGrammarSaurus Rex | 514 comments Not sad at all! I'm definitely looking forward to this more than Xmas!

I did it for the 1st time this year. I just signed up to a team based on which heroes I fancied and dived in.

I tend to go through my tbr and see what fits, and if I'm running out of time for a villain, I will look for a book to meet a specific challenge, but otherwise I tend to read what I want & see what fits 😁
