Erin (NY) (erin_p) | 629 comments The word “each” in task description is messing me up. Just to clarify: we are supposed to pick 2 of the 3 options, and read 1 book for those 2? And they have to be different options, correct?
Thanks for clarification!

Thanks,

Prior is preferred, but this season is fine as long as #1 is read before option 2 is begun

Charlston Goch (list_addict) | 150 comments Sorry to be daft, but can I clarify for option two that it can be any continuing book in a series you’ve started, not necessarily the latest release? Thanks and sorry to be a pain!

Yes, but it can't be the latest published or a fill-in (novella, short story, etc)

Pam (bluegrasspam) For book 2, I’m reading Flavia de Luce #9. #10 is listed in Goodreads (the ARC is out and the book has ratings) but the publish date is in 2019. Can I count it? Thanks.

The Golden Tresses of the Dead is not yet published.
The Grave's a Fine and Private Place is the last published and doesn't work for this task.

Pam (bluegrasspam) Thanks! That’s what I figured. I have 2 other series I can consider reading.

I'm confused. I started reading a series this month, and I have been reading the books in order. Can I or can't I use one of the later books in the series for this task?
