1st prize:

Thank you to everyone who participated! The game was so much more fun than the Admins ever envisioned when dreaming it up and I loved reading your reviews and learning more about each and every one of you.

I know it sounds sappy, but it is the truth: the members are what make PBT so great and are the key to our 10 years of reading and friendship!

This is a list of the members who completed all 10 challenges in the month assigned.

I will post a list of everyone who completed the challenge--which is a huge accomplishment!--regardless of the month completed this evening when I am back at a computer.

I completed it too! Even though I don't get any points; I'm needy and need credit, lol. ;)

To be fair, I may have only tracked this well in my personal thread since I knew I wasn't getting points or anything, so I'm sure it's my own fault I'm not on the list. But I swear I did it!


message 20: by Ellen (new)

Ellen | 2087 comments Congratulations Kszr! Well done! Great job to all who finished the challenge.


message 21: by Nicole R (new)

Nicole R (drnicoler) | 7709 comments Anita, I had you missing a month, which may have happened if you were just tracking some of them personally!

Rachel N. | 1441 comments Congratulations Amy!


message 26: by Amy (new)

Amy | 8289 comments Oh my goodness! Really! I could buy the Clockmaker’s daughter for all of my friends! We tried. To have a local book club on this book next Sunday, but nobody could get a hold of it! Now it’s set for late January....

Seriously, I’d so look forward to shopping for my birthday. A gal could never have enough purses.... I’ll have to get back to you guys on this. One nice thing, is that very few people outside of this intimate circle, appreciate how hard we work to finish these challenges. It’s kind of a big deal that we do. So every time we win a raffle or a Decathalon or something, it does represent that hard work and great stories it took to get there. It’s a testament, that I have like 30 books that would compete for my top ten. I already have the top seven pretty much set, so it’s really like 15-20 books now competing for the last three places. Thank you randomizer and good friends for all the great titles suggested, and for the good energy and comeraderie.

I can 100% guarantee that it was my tracking/reporting that was off . . .but at the nth hour, I got it done.


message 32: by Susie (new)

Susie | 4488 comments Congratulations to the winners!

My tracking must have gone awry, as I definitely completed each challenge in the month assigned too. No matter though. I had great fun doing it. :-)

Lol, the tracking was the hardest part of the Decathlon!

Hi Susie, the only month I do not have you completing is January; all other months you completed the challenge in the month it was assigned.

I just double checked the thread and, if you completed the challenge, then you forgot to post it in the reporting thread :(


message 35: by Nicole R (new)

Nicole R (drnicoler) | 7709 comments Anita wrote: "Lol, the tracking was the hardest part of the Decathlon! "

It was! And it was one of the reasons I posted a link to the tracking sheet every month so people could double check me! I never received any corrections so I thought I was just CRUSHING it, but apparently no one was really double-checking me! lol


message 36: by Joanne (new)

Joanne (joabroda1) | 7243 comments I have to admit, I have never tracked any of my points on PBT-to me it's been all about the fun and camaraderie- each time I go to a spread sheet I think, oh! gosh how awesome that Admin keeps such great records!


message 37: by Amy (new)

Amy | 8289 comments Joanne, I haven’t looked since it was 122. Maybe beginning of the year? I bet it’s almost double now!

That's what I figured. I wasn't even going to say anything until I saw Anita mentioned hers! :-)


message 45: by Susie (new)
