Hey everyone,

Just a reminder, you can only claim one summer bonus per book. If you have accidentally claimed more than one please just edit your post to include only one summer bonus per book, otherwise I will have to chose one when I add up the scores and I would rather leave the decision up to you. If you feel fuzzy on the rules please refer back to this post: Rules/Questions


If you have any questions about them you may also post them in that thread.
