The Spring 2019 Challenge will begin at 00:00, ET March 1, 2019, and end at midnight, 24:00, ET, May 31, 2019.

This is where you will need to post information about completed tasks - updates to the Readerboard will be based on what is posted HERE AND ONLY HERE.

Please do not delete or edit any post in this thread!! Even if the post is not reflected on the Readerboard yet, I've often logged the post on my spreadsheet already and I will not know that you've made the changes. I do not go backwards in this thread to pick up points. If you need to make a change, just make a new post.

Please refer to the Posting Requirements for what must be included, and to the Rules of the Challenge and FAQs that will help us keep the challenge running smoothly.


NOTES:
1. You MUST post a link to books claimed for a task. Be sure that you have linked to the correct edition. See How-to and links to books in your completed task posts. The links must be posted with the individual task - a list of links elsewhere in the post is not sufficient.
2. If you are claiming a Golden Oldies ticket you must specifically request a ticket along with the individual task by claiming "Golden Oldie" and stating the original publication year. A list of titles or years elsewhere in the post is not sufficient.
3. If you are claiming a Big Book ticket, you must claim it along with the individual task post and specifically state that it is a Big Book ticket claim. You must include the number of pages in the book, and a link to the edition you used to establish page count. Simply including the number of pages or providing a list of books elsewhere in the post is not sufficient.
4. If you claim a book that only exists in e-book form, you MUST provide either a line reference to the approved book spreadsheet or the post number in which the book was approved. See the ebook only verification thread.
5. If the task requires a cover element, you MUST include the cover when you post.
6. If the task has options, you MUST indicate the options. Remember to include all "Required" task elements.
7. If your book was approved in the Help Thread for the task, the Genre Verification thread, the Not Really for Kids thread, or the Not Really a Graphic Novel thead, please indicate that in your post.
8. Include only ONE task per post.
9. Include your point total in your post.

Any problems with task postings will be posted in the Questions/Problems thread. Please post there if you have a question about your points, Golden Oldies or Big Books.

Good luck and have fun!
