Rachel (treychel) | 1484 comments I love your key! Why can I never think of something this smart?!


message 3: by Amy J. (new)

Amy J. | 685 comments Thanks Rachel, you've my permission to borrow the idea ;p

I just find listing them this way more convenient. Because I can easily see which challenges I need to update when I finish a given book.


message 4: by Rachel (new)

Rachel (treychel) | 1484 comments Exactly. That is one of the hardest things I find about the challenges...remembering which ones need to be update.

Thanks! I think I will borrow it. :)

Tuğçe Gökırmak (TugceNidaSevin) | 157 comments We have a few common to-reads this month Amy, it will be really enjoyable to discuss them through the month. I keep my tracks in a notebook that I carry around always, where I usually write bits and pieces when an idea comes to my mind about a story or something. But this might be smarter :D and definitely easier to track.

Excellent! I look forward to discussing them with you.

Last month I debated starting one of these lists, but ultimately decided to make my list on a sticky note I kept on my computer at work. And it worked well when I was there...

message 10: by Rachel (new)

Rachel (treychel) | 1484 comments I really like your last challenge. I don't recognize it as one of ours. Did you get it from another group or come up with it yourself? I wouldn't mind borrowing the idea for myself or even talking it over with Lisarenee and Sashana as a challenge to post for all members. What would you think of that? Totally your decision on both!


message 11: by Amy J. (new)

Amy J. | 685 comments It a challenge from another group, The Romance Readers Reading Challenges, though not a lot of the books on my list are strictly romance.

I bet a lot of members here would enjoy it, but I don't know the protocol for borrowing from other groups.


message 12: by Rachel (new)

Rachel (treychel) | 1484 comments Hmmm. I might have to contact them and see what they say. I think our members would enjoy it too. It would also be a good way for all of us to read some older books and not just newer ones, which I tend to do in this group quite a bit. Not complaining by any means, but I still like finding older "gems" and raving about them. :) Thanks for the info, Amy.

Jex (Jexball) | 2228 comments I like the lifetime challenge too. I'll have to remember that one after I finish some of the ones I already have.
