This is also where you will post what you have completed so that it can be updated on the leaderboard. You can claim your points every time you complete a task or every few tasks that you complete; however often you choose to.

Claiming your points should look something like this:

Just finished "This Book" for "this task" for x points.

New Total: x points

I'll have an Excel spreadsheet going with the totals so I'll be keeping track for you but it helps if you post your totals too just in case I miss something.

New this challenge: I'll be creating an Google Doc and posting a link to it as well so that in the event that I am gone for a week or so or get busy (because my life seems like it has been that way lately!) then Lori will be able to make updates on that until I get the leaderboard on here updated.


Please check the leaderboard before you make your FIRST post claiming points to make sure nobody has your name. If somebody does have your name, please put your last initial or something to distinguish yourself. You don't have to change your name for GR but rather everytime you post, in addition to your points and all that jazz, put the name that you would like on the leaderboard. Please do this every time you post. I can't tell you how many triples and doubles I had of SO many names. It took me so long to figure out who the heck was who.

Also, please please please wait until you have finished the WHOLE task before you post it. Alot of people were just posting one book for a 2 book task a month before the other one and then not reposting that book when they actually finished the book. It took me so long to go back through the thread to find that they did indeed read 2 books for the challenge but one book was just posted elsewhere.

Finished 25.6 Books women and men should read.

Pride and Prejudice/Call of the Wild.

I agree that both fit very well in each list. However I feel that both and most of the books on the list were geared towards each sex. I loved Pride and Prejudice and didn't care for Call of the Wild(not really a dog or adventure novel person). Both have been on my list to read for a long while and I am glad that I read both.
