For Your Enjoyment:

Add your books to the master list, but do NOT list the same book twice under different challenges. You may move your books from one challenge to another at any time. Your books should be either unmarked, marked Reading, or marked COMPLETED. Should you not finish a book, delete it from the wiki without guilt! Any book not marked COMPLETED at the end of the month *will be deleted* soon thereafter.

You may add a "counter-challenge" to the wiki within the first week (only up to day #4) of the month. One per person, please.

Anyone may start a separate thread. The purpose of the separate thread is to: (1) explain challenge rules, (2) stimulate discussion, and (3) encourage posting of book covers - if cover art is involved. Remember to add a link back to the main thread for easier TIOLI navigation.

DIRECTIONS for adding your book(s) and how to increase the point value of this challenge are on the FAQs page (see link at the bottom of this page). You worry about adding/deleting your books; I'll worry about the point value.
