message 2: by Beth (new)

Beth White (betherly) | 224 comments I have 2 books on the go at the moment that I’m not sure I will finish before the end of the January challenge. Will they count for the February challenge if I finish them in February rather than January?


Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 9906 comments I couldn't find this in the rules. When you say we have words to find. Is it SPECIFIC words or can we just find any word and it counts?

If you finish them in February, you can only count the pages that you read in February for page points.

Hmm I mean, I have the answers to the word search.. but if you find words that I didn't mean to put in it - then by all means go ahead. You might get extra points for it.

Woohoo! Added bonus! :P


Anna 'Bookbuyer' (bookbuyer) | 9906 comments Alaina I know you answered this somewhere but I'm too lazy to find it. What is the rule for long words like 'International Language Day?'

Can we do it as three words or one word?

Can the words be backwards? DOOG = good

Nevermind, I answered my own question by finding some other words.

….hmm I would be evil if I added days into the word search, wouldn't I?


Marythios (AkaSusanne ) | 420 comments I am wondering if we go over the amount of books we can read. I severely underestimated my books i could read. I was not sure what books would count. Anyways I want to make sure before I get to crazy with my book numbers and people get upset. This was not done intentional. Is this going to be a problem?

You are more than welcome to go over the book amount that you estimated to me :)

BookWorm | 1239 comments If a book has two authors, would the letters it could work for be either one of those authors?

Sure, since it doesn't have any other editions or mentions any authors per say.

lmao yes. It was mentioned on the sign up and we've always allowed alt editions in our challenges.

BookWorm | 1239 comments If we have a BOTM and we want to post it on the SS, would we just say it is a BR and you would put the right number of points on the Review thread?

On the SS, yes to BR. However, on the review thread, instead of saying BR and then adding the link - say BOTM and then add the link. That way I know which points to give you on your teams review thread.

Does that make sense?

BookWorm | 1239 comments Yes, thank you.
