Kate S | 6266 comments Read a book set in one of the 30 biggest cities in the world or in one of the 30 smallest (by population) countries in the world. The book can be set in any time period, but must take place at least 75% in target city/country.

Kate S | 6266 comments We are getting a little crazy here at the RwS. We have split task 10.8 into two parts to be sure we honor our members.

A few notes about this unusual task:

1. A book claimed for 10.8 can work for either part K or R (please include which part in your claim).
2. A combo for 10.8 can be claimed for part K or R.
3. A book claimed for 10.8K does not qualify for a combo with 10.8 R.
4. A book claimed for 10.8K will not qualify for multiple unless a previous claim for 10.8K has also been made.
5. For a mega finish, one must only claim a book for 10.8K or 10.8R.
