2011 Romance Readers Reading Challenges (RRRC) — 6 Comments

  1. Hi Lindy!

    I’m a bit confused. You want to read the same books I’m reading for this challenge?? I don’t always choose, in advance, every book because I might not be in the mood to read a certain book or something new catches my interest. I can give you the link to the RULES for this challenge, so you can pick your own books that fit.

    You don’t need to be a member of the group to read the posts, but you won’t be able to make a comment there unless you are a member of that particular group.

    Toy Stories Challenge

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks for stopping by!

        • Lindy,
          “war”? Do you mean, the Action Figure category, where I chose to read a Star Wars novel? I finished that book on February 6th. This category, along with the Card Games, were Reader’s Choice categories. Pick any two favorite toys. Some people got really creative and picked Stuffed Animals so they could read shape-shifter books (wolves, dragons, etc.)

          Lite Brite (I just added my choice) — a colorful cover (3 or more colors).

          The Connect Four category can be: the 4th book of a series OR the title can be four words long.

          Raggedy Ann and Andy: feature a red-head character OR a red cover

          I hope that helps!
