Okay! I did a check and came up with the following members who have completed what they set out to do:

Jerelyn - all 8 categories completed on 7/2/11.

Vicky - all 8 categories completed on 8/13/11.

Cheryl - 4 categories completed on 8/5/11.

Carolyn - 4 categories completed on 8/6/11.

Alice - 4 categories completed on 4/28/11.

These are only in order as far as how they came up on the lists.

I arbitrarily decided that there should be a prize for the person who finished the most extensive challenge in the shortest amount of time and that appears to be Jerelyn/Letty. I will do this again next year for the person who completes the entire challenge first - so get yourselves prepared. It's a little incentive, dont'cha know, but I hope that no one feels compelled to speed read through their books. I don't think this violates any rules that I am aware of but if it does, I figure that someone will let me know!

Keep reading for the sheer enjoyment of it and I hope that all of you are getting a kick out of some of the books you've found! I'm amazed at how many of you are giving this a try. Good going!

Congratulations!  I think this makes me First Runner Up.  I get a crown and some flowers, right?

Well, Vicky, it's for sure that you aren't getting that pony that Letty wanted! ;-)

So, do you think it's a good idea to do that - or what?

BTW, I reissued my request for a sticky thread. The last time I did that I was told that I would hear something in 24-48 hrs. but I didn't.
