Read a book with a farm animal on the cover OR the author's first name begins with a letter in FARM.
-->BONUS: The name of a farm animal in the title. Ex. Who Moved My Goat Cheese?
Silly Question but I forget. Is this one book for both the task and bonus or can it be two?
I guess what I am asking is if Who Moved My Goat Cheese had a goat on the front does it count as 2 but could you say the book with the animal in the title didnt have an animal on the cover can you use a different book to get the bonus points.

No, the bonus points are for the book read for the task.
Read a book with a farm animal on the cover OR the author's first name begins with a letter in FARM.
Above 1 point
BUT if there is also an animal in the title - then 3 points - an extra 2 for the bonus. has to be the same book

OK? :)
