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.

I am so honored to be the first on this list (lol)
The dances included in this book, are a visual story telling of folklore and religion. For example the Sunrise dance tells the story of the Changing Woman.

Sheila (sheilaj) | 2244 comments It is my goal this season NOT to make this thread at all. We will see how long that lasts. :)

message 13: by ★Meghan★ (new)

★Meghan★ (starinheaven) | 832 comments I was pretty proud of myself last season too...I wasn't on the list either. I think I have only made it on once and that was because Goodreads was not playing nicely when I was trying to post.

Lauren Marie - post 101

The requirement for task 20.1, option 1 is that you had to have owned the book on March 1st. So a book you bought on the 2nd won't work.

Task 25.12, Book One Option 3: Requires that the main character be a woman, not a girl.

Book Two Option 1: requires a book with a predominately green cover. Mirror, Mirror on the Wall The Diary of Bess Brennan, The Perkins School for the Blind, 1932 (Dear America) by Barry Denenberg does not appear to be at least half green.

Rinnie - post 167

Task 10.5 is not the FIRE within. Since you've already claimed 10.5, I assume you meant to claim Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children for task 5.4. If this is not correct, let me know so I can change it.

Task 30.6 -- Does Mama actually go to prison in Mama Does Time? From the description, it doesn't seem as if she does... In which case, a nonfiction book on police procedure would be more like what Dee's looking for.

So sorry! I can't believe I forgot to have it approved. I took care of it today, the ebook is approved in the ebook thread. Do I need to repost or do anything to the post that included that book?

She goes to jail, but does not get sent to prison, but you can't tell that when you start to read the book. Do we have to know everything that's in the book before we read it? Guess I'll read another one.

He is a music professor at the local University in West Virginia. She is a student in his music class. He gave up his fame and concerts, etc. in NY and moved to VW to teach so his daughter could grow up in a hometown environment.

Thanks, Fran. It's been years since I read it (and my memory stinks ;-)) and the GRs description didn't go into all that. No need to repost. I got it.
