Questions or problems with completed task posts will be posted here.

If you have questions about your points on the Readerboard:

1. Please check your math first!
2. Check to see if one of your posts is listed in this thread with a question. If so, please make a NEW POST in the Completed tasks thread to clear up the question. DO NOT go back and edit the original post. I will not go backwards in the completed task thread to pick up points.
3. To avoid further questions/problems, please refer to the TASK DESCRIPTIONS and the POSTING REQUIREMENTS.

Thank you for helping keep the record keeping for the challenge as manageable as possible.

ALEKSANDRA post 14

If you are claiming a BB ticket (or GRA), you need to say this explicitly in your post, not just list a number of books at the bottom.

You had already claimed task 10.8 in post 17. Was this supposed to be task 5.7 or another task? You must repost with another task.

I'll pick it up this time, but please be sure to indicate that in the future. Once we're past the first few posts, it's too difficult to go back for things. Thanks!

Task 15.6 requires a police officer or law enforcement professional as a significant character. Please identify the character- there is no reference to law enforcement in the book description

Math error: 5.8, 5.10, 10.8 = 20, not 15


message 13: by Midu (new)

Midu Hadi | 903 comments He's a Ranger and part of the army. That's why the series is called Mackinnon's Rangers

The author says this: "fighting for the Crown not as Redcoats, but as Rangers - men whose style of fighting is modeled more after Indian than European warfare." Clare's Rangers are not professional law enforcement.


message 15: by Midu (new)

Midu Hadi | 903 comments Army wouldn't be included in the category?

Bec post 87

Bec, "ex-military officer and all-around tough guy Joe Hunter" cannot be considered a law enforcement officer for this task. This book could fit 5.10, 10.4, 10.9, 15.10, 25.1- Plumeria or others.

Jessica (sureshot26) | 771 comments I think one of my Goodreads author tickets got missed - I suspect it's from post #103 for Mitchell Zuckoff. Added to my two from post #66, I come up w/3 total.

MJ | 136 comments Hi, I claimed a Goodreads author ticket. There's one under "MG," which I think is me, but I'm "MJ." If that's not me, then I think I was missed, and I'm happy to correct my post is I did something wrong.

Thanks!

Oops, I just saw that there is also an "MG" on the readerboard, and the GR author tickets are only updated to post 100. My mistake!
