Barb | 846 comments What a great challenge! One quick question: Are we allowed to double- or even triple-dip? If I read a series book with a yellow cover whose title starts with M, can I use it for all three sections? Or can we only use each book once for the entire challenge?

Kim (celticoracle) | 18 comments This looks like a lot of fun. Two questions - I'm assuming if you're doing multiple challenges there's no problem in using the same book once in each (e.g. Smurfs and here)? Also, do I have to declare my major right away or can I decide when I get there?

Awesome idea!

Yes, cross-challengeing is encouraged. You can wait to declare your major. Just like in college, take a few classes, experiment, see what works for you, before deciding. And then if it just isn't working out switch majors half way through.

Mmmm....Coffee...I already had a cup, but can I have another? I really try to limit my intake but its coffee!!

Suzanne (esmerelda1) | 1513 comments I need 2 cups of coffee before I begin to feel human. I wanted to cutback too, but I think I'd fall asleep at my desk... Plus I have really yummy liquid coffee creamer and it's SOO tasty!


message 34: by Dawn (Kat N Hat) (new)

Dawn (Kat N Hat) (katnhat) Yeah, I have to have 2 cups too. But the way I drink it there is just as much milk as coffee so it probably is only a little more than 1 normal cup.

Hina, I'd say more coffee for everyone but then we might get too gittery to sit and read....

It is the cover style that counts not the picture on the cover.

Theese tattoos would work Pretty in Ink (Tattoo Shop Mystery #2) by Karen E. Olson Driven to Ink (Tattoo Shop Mystery, #3) by Karen E. Olson

However, these would not work The Darkest Kiss (Lords of the Underworld, #2) by Gena Showalter Lover Avenged (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #7) by J.R. Ward

Make sense?
