MrsJoseph *grouchy* (mrsjoseph) | 3289 comments If you have checked out the main page of this group, you noticed that there are two group challenges showing currently.

Goodreads is beta-testing group challenge trackers/widgets and I thought our group might be interested.

If either of the challenges is not your style but you would like a different one, PM me with the details and I will create one for you.

Other than that, feedback would be great! Do you like it? Hate it? Have any suggestions? Like it but not for this group?

Let me know! :-D

Are you able to set future challenges?

I know we had the Dresden Files challenge this year, but I would love to be able to do it in 2012, since I did not take advantage of it. Any chance of offering it again for next year?

Yeah, what she said. I'm only on Death Masks, so I won't be finishing the Dresden challenge this year either.

MrsJoseph *grouchy* (mrsjoseph) | 3289 comments I am able to set up future challenges. :-)

Sure we can do Dresden for 2012! Here are the limitations for the program: just like the regular reading challenges the read date is what counts the book.


When do you want to have it start and end?


message 7: by Nyssa, Series Addict (new)

Nyssa | 1229 comments I suggest January 2011, like the other challenges for those who have already started reading the books, through the end of July or August.

HomeInMyShoes | 2619 comments Is it possible just to have open-ended challenges or does there have to be an end date?

We have to have some sort of end date to make the system work - but it can be moved around to what works best.


message 15: by HomeInMyShoes (new)

HomeInMyShoes | 2619 comments Who's interested in a Discworld challenge? I'm currently at 10 books read in the 32 book series. I know it would take me forever at the two or three titles I read from it each year, but who else is interested?

As well, when is the 2013 reading challenge discussion area going to be open? I've already got my tentative reading list and want some place to advertise it and get some input on books that should be substituted in.

You know...I think I might be down for the Discworld...I've not read a lick of that series but I have the Wee Free Men sitting on my TBR Sooner pile just staring at me.



Oh, BTW, I put of the discussion section for you. ;-)


message 17: by HomeInMyShoes (new)

HomeInMyShoes | 2619 comments It's 39 books long. :eeks:

I've currently read 10 and given next year's list I won't be getting to any more than two or three by the end of next year.

Awesome news for the new section. And no, I'm not one of those people putting up holiday decorations before Hallowe'en.

Nyssa | 1229 comments MrsJ, where is the discussion thread? I'm creating a challenge meter for it, and would like to link the discussion, (like I did for Dresden, the Hollows, etc.) but I can not find it.

Nyssa | 1229 comments Here is the challenge link: http://www.goodreads.com/challenges/6...

Nyssa | 1229 comments Heads Up: All existing challenges (including those that ended in May) have been extended to the end of 2013!

Also: If you have any new series challenge ideas, please let me know.
