Hey Carolina, I saw your posts on the diviners series thread and I just wanted to let you know that if you only post on the thread, the mods won't know to reset it. For any of your buddy reads post the book, date you want to start and the thread on the January 2018 planning thread: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

Hey, Aly if you go to the review thread (here: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...) you can record your finished books and Sarah will calculate your points whenever she is next on :)

The very first post in the thread will show you how to set your own post out like. You need to link to your review of the book, the buddy read thread if you did one, and link to the edition of the book with the highest number of pages (it doesn't matter if this is the edition that you read or not) for maximum points.

Hope that made sense :)
