Shandra | 23 comments Dumb Question (I'm a new challenge person still trying to figure it all out!): To complete a building, do you have to do all four of the qualifiers or just one? For example, if I want to complete Star Bhavan (Bank of India), do I need to read a book I purchased, a book with stars on the cover, a book where the MC is rich, AND a book where the MC needs money or do I just need to read a book featuring ONE of these things?

Just one task from only 3 buildings. By the way, welcome to our challenges!

I'm so glad to hear you say that.

Even though this challenge is structured a bit differently from month to month, I hardly ever ask you to read more than three books to complete the challenge.
