The links to Challenges By Name should be working now.

I am glad that so many still appreciate the use of these challenges. Since we rarely check in with each other, (which actually makes sense) I am never sure if this group should continue.

Using the challenges myself has helped me focus better. I am happy to continue for everyone.

There was some talk about this in another group.

I have added:

Second One To Know Reading the secod book in a series to decide whether to continue or not.

Linda (lindamarie79) | 14 comments I love the challenges you set up. It keeps me focused also and makes it fun to have goals to work on through the year. I think if more people knew about this group they would be joining us but not sure how to go about it . Thanks Almeta!

Not a Silly Question.

You will have to click on the link to each challenge (through the catalog) in order to see your and other's participation.

Unfortunately there is no place to view all of "just yours" in one place, Unless you set up the links in your own message.


That's what I am doing in a personal thread. Like this:

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! = 65
Doorstops Reading those big books that you've been avoiding. = 10
Short Cut = 50
Reality Check =5
