**NEW RULE** For this 2-month challenge and our upcoming June one, we are doing something a little different. At the end of our Series Quarterly Challenge there will be one winner that wins a prize of getting to choose a book from bookdepository.com. They can pick any book up to $10. For this to happen, we will be combining the points from this challenge, our June challenge, and our Series Quarterly together to pick that winner.

checked you both in!


Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 9906 comments I haven't really planned what each book will fit because after I saw *A book written by a woman* I knew it would be easy. 95% of the books I read are by women. ^-^

And yes, it's all that high fantasy that gives men the advantage in my reading.

Wait! We all can't read the same categories?! I didn't know that!


message 27: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments The rules say that all categories have to be completed once before it can be started over.

😂😂😂


message 34: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments Some of the ones I have can also be moved around to other categories. And some of them I'm probably not going to get to.

KK. We can figure it out once everyone is here. I would love the wonderwoman female author one but I can probably fit a lot of my books if various categories. :)


message 37: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments Yeah, both of the ones that I have marked on that could probably be moved. And those are some that I am not as sure about. I will probably read the Heir right now, but Silas Marner might happen later.

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 9906 comments So I already know I can't do WW2 so hopefully one of you can cover that. Otherwise none of the others seem impossible. :)


message 40: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments I will probably be listening to Salt to the Sea, so I can take WW2.

Awesome. Do you want me to add that to the list or wait? :)


message 42: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments You can add it. :) We can change later if needed.

KK. :)


message 44: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments How do we want to claim stuff? Maybe each pick a couple from the start and then see from there?


message 45: by Anna 'Bookbuyer' (new)

Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 9906 comments C.P. wrote: "How do we want to claim stuff? Maybe each pick a couple from the start and then see from there?"

Sure. How about we cap at 3 and then the faster readers have more options. :)


message 46: by C.P. (new)

C.P. Cabaniss (cpcabaniss) | 8239 comments Sounds good! And things can be changed around if needed. I think trying to plan them all out would be a bad idea.

So if anyone has some they would like to claim, let us know.

it's all good! I checked you in! We don't really send out a message to everyone in the group when we make teams.. mostly because we just add them onto the sign up sheet.. but I'm thinking maybe we should start making a different thread for all of that and then sending out a message..

So, just to get this straight - if we need one from each category before we turn it over again, then it would be best if we buddy with people outside our group, right? Otherwise, we would have 2 people with the same book (unless we could put it in different categories), right?
