Vanessa (vanessacoutu) | 1111 comments I liked and copied Randi's idea of posting the book covers at the end of my challenge lists, and because we can on GoodReads, I added links for the books read.

Oh, good idea! I'll do that too.


message 8: by Randi (new)

Randi | 24 comments Oooooh, glad you guys like that idea but it definitely was never my idea! But it does make it easier to recognize a book.

Vanessa (vanessacoutu) | 1111 comments Don't forget to fill in your categories!! :-)


Kristi (foxtail_too) (foxtail_too) | 428 comments Vanessa wrote: "Don't forget to fill in your categories!! :-)"

I really like putting the book covers at the bottom of the post. That way I can keep track of all that I've read, not just the ones that fit into the categories.


message 11: by Vanessa (new)

Vanessa (vanessacoutu) | 1111 comments Me too!! I was thinking of putting them all at the bottom too, but I also have a shelf of 2018 Books Read. I tend to be redundant if I don't check myself.

I don't keep track anywhere else, so this is great for me. I don't even get all my books onto GR.


message 13: by Vanessa (new)

Vanessa (vanessacoutu) | 1111 comments Have you noticed that most of the audio books don't transfer to Goodreads? Another thing that I don't like is that I have to look through 20 different versions of a book, (including the foreign language ones), before I find the audio edition. It should be e-book, paperback, hardback, or audio, then all of the other editions.


message 14: by Vanessa (new)

Vanessa (vanessacoutu) | 1111 comments Bump, Bump, Bump!! C'mon let's fill in those categories!!! :-}


Kristi (foxtail_too) (foxtail_too) | 428 comments I need a book with a narwhal to finish off my species list!


message 16: by Vanessa (new)

Vanessa (vanessacoutu) | 1111 comments Ok not a narwhal, Venom & Vanilla, and A Court of Thorns and Roses books both have a Naga. Also, the InCryptid series has Naga's. They would serve your "N" series.

Maybe Nalini will have a narwhal as one of her underseas Changlings.

Vanessa (vanessacoutu) | 1111 comments I think that posting the covers is eating up my allotted number of characters left. So I had to stop posting the book covers.

Bump, Bump, Bump..... Trying to fill my challenge spots. Good Luck Everyone, Carry on!! :-)


Kristi (foxtail_too) (foxtail_too) | 428 comments Vanessa, copy the covers to a new post! I've loved posting them, and that's what I'll do if I run out of characters.

I'm making progress! Surprisingly, I'm having more trouble with titles than authors this year.


Kristi (foxtail_too) (foxtail_too) | 428 comments I was just adding a book and I thought I'd deleted the post instead of editing! I panicked! So, I just copied it over to a Word doc so I'd have a back up.


message 28: by Vanessa (new)

Vanessa (vanessacoutu) | 1111 comments I think that there would be too much work if I were to erase my books. I would throw up my hands and give up. (LOL)!

I think that next year I will have a post right after my original with my book covers. I love seeing them too. I'm up to around 160 books so far this year, and I still have a couple of months left.

I know! I am so glad I didn't delete it, as I love adding books. What I like about the covers is that I can still post something even though the book doesn't help with any of my categories...all to common at this time of year!


message 30: by Vanessa (new)

Vanessa (vanessacoutu) | 1111 comments I agree, that's what I love about the cover idea too. A visual list of my year's books. Also thanks for the Y's location. I read the Amid the Winter Snow anthology and forgot all about that place. I really should peruse more of everyone's books and more often.

message 40: by Vanessa (new)

Vanessa (vanessacoutu) | 1111 comments Ok so it is coming down to the wire, (per usual), and all that I need is a "Z" book, and an "X" and "Y" author.

Next year I will designated a "message" strictly for my book covers. I have to continually delete my books so I can fill in my categories.

We're almost there!!


Lisa - (Aussie Girl) | 570 comments Good luck Vanessa. Those tricky letters never get any easier, LOL.


message 42: by Vanessa (new)

Vanessa (vanessacoutu) | 1111 comments You can say that again Lisa. Every year the same letters, unless I read a book with Zombie in it, LOL!!


message 43: by Vanessa (new)

Vanessa (vanessacoutu) | 1111 comments I can't believe it but with a bit of maneuvering, and a tiny bit of creativity, I finished all 5 of my categories!! And before the last days of the year!! Whew!!

I had to eliminate quite a few of my book covers to gain enough characters, so next year for the A-Z challenge I am going to add another post after my category post to accommodate my book covers. I like to see all of them displayed.

I hope that you all finish your challenge and return to do it next year!! :-)


Lisa - (Aussie Girl) | 570 comments Congratulations and well done Vanessa!


Kristi (foxtail_too) (foxtail_too) | 428 comments Congratulations, Vanessa!

I somehow think I'll not finish any more than my species one, but I love doing this every year. I didn't run out of characters, but I'll do the second covers post too. That was a great addition to this thread.
