  • Looks great!  There's a good variety here!

    What is meant by: "give up your favorite genre?"  Read a book from a genre you don't normally read?

    That's what I'm guessing.  The original post didn't have any additional information.

  • Just realized that one of the 15 pointers should be to read the Jan., Feb., or March month book.

    Aha!  I knew I forgot something.  

    Suggestions on what to remove?

  • Maybe swap Read a book and post a review on NBC out for Reading the Jan/Feb/March NBC book & discussion? 

    My favorite 15 pointer is Read a book you first heard about after the start of the challenge so I'm hoping that one stays in there.

    I like the challenge about writing a post because we used to write about lots of books and it has slowed down some.

    How about getting rid of the one about giving up a genre?

    After reading cougarette's post about completing FBC, I realized that we just did a "book as part of a series" task.

    I suggest removing that and switching "give up your favorite genre" to a 5 point task.

    I like this one too. It's different and I think is going to open up a lot of different books for people
