CHALLENGE RULES:
See this thread for more detailed rules for all CCC challenges.

♦ If you want to participate in this challenge, please sign up by posting a challenge template. This gives us a post to link you to, which you can use to update your books as the challenge progresses.

♦ Unless otherwise noted, books must be at least 150 pages long. (See the link above for rules regarding graphic novels.) Books may only be used for one task in this challenge, but cross-challenge posting is encouraged 🙂 Re-reads are allowed, as long as you read the entire book. You must read at least half of the book AFTER the challenge begins in order to count it for this challenge.

♦ If you choose any of the spelling options, you may use the first letter of the first word in the book’s title (excluding A, An and The) or the author’s first or last initial (middle names or initials can NOT be used).
-In the case of a hyphenated first or last name (i.e. Sarah-Kate LynchKate E. Dyer-Seeley), the first letter of the hyphenated name may be used (not the second initial directly following the hyphen).
-If an author uses what appears to be “two last names” (usually a female author using her maiden name and then her married last name; i.e. Kathy Hogan Trocheck), the last initial of the two names counts since the maiden name is now serving in the place of a “middle” name.

♦ For each book you read, please post a link to the title, and indicate the author and the date you finished reading it. If you don’t, you won’t get credit for completing that task.
* If you don’t know how to post a link to the book title or author, see the instructions here: Add a link to book title or author

♦ If you want the challenge moderator to verify your books as you post updates, please copy/paste your update into a new message . If you do this while you still have the Edit window open, it will copy all of your formatting, etc. too. We don’t have time to scroll back through the entire thread looking for “message #15,” or to follow links back to an original post.

♦ For those who read books whose title is in a language other than English: For spelling challenges and tasks asking for a title beginning with a specific letter, please remember that words representing articles cannot be used in challenges where you’re asked to disregard A, An and The. If you’re unsure about your book title, post in the challenge thread and the mod will get back to you about it ASAP.

♦ When you complete the challenge, please post your entire list as a new message. If you do this while you still have the Edit window open, it will copy all of your links and formatting. If you don’t repost your list, your name will not be added to the list of those who have completed the challenge.
