Lina | 5563 comments Taita, I noticed that you've updated your covers here for the Cover Image Search challenge, but not on the challenge page itself. I'm only pointing it out in case you didn't realise or had forgotten to update both. If not, sorry :-)


message 8: by taita (new)

taita | 188 comments Hi CaroB! Yah, I tend to update on my personal page so that I collect a good amount of updates before posting on the main page. I just don't like to keep going back and forth. LOL. I'll be updating the main page soon as I think I have enough to share now. Thanks for the reminder! :-)

Lina | 5563 comments Hi Taita, saw your posts #13 and 14 above and was wondering, did you know we have a 2012 Reading goals and Challenges folder? It's possible the mods will be archiving the 2011 Reading Goals by about Feb of next year so it doesn't get confusing.


message 16: by taita (new)

taita | 188 comments LOL. No, I didn't pick up on that. Thanks CaroB! I will log my 2012 Challenges in there. Thanks for keeping me in line. ;-)
