In case you didn't get the e-mail (I didn't) and you don't visit any other PBS forum, in two weeks PBS is going to start charging a membership fee. 

I think there are 3 different options $20, $12, and a la carte. None of the options are suitable for me. I would do a la carte but you don't have access to these forums. 

So I am leaving come Feb 15th when all this goes into effect and I won't be able to finish out my challenge. 

It was fun, wasn't it?

I guess I'll have to use up my credits. I am lucky I just sold some a week ago. I don't find enough value here to pay for.

Tome Trader, why can't you still finish your challenge?

As for me, I'll be out too, but it won't stop my reading.

I mean to say I am not finishing it here on PBS. I copy and pasted it to the Goodreads forum that has been established for PBS expatriots.

I think I would like to continue reading these forums even though I won't be able to post. I enjoy seeing what other people are reading so I can get ideas for stuff to read myself. If a lot of people leave or quit posting there may not be much to read though.

Someone else will have to be in charge of compiling the Classic Challenge for future years. I'll still do one, but I won't be able to share it here.
