Missouri Book Challenge Happy Hour (and presentation)

Christa and I are preparing to spread the word about the Book Challenge at MLA next week! We'll be presenting on Wednesday at 3:00pm. If anyone is coming, and would like to take a more active part in our presentation, please email us soon. We need sword fighters, hecklers, anything! Also, if anyone wants to submit some funny photos of their own reading challenges, it's not too late to add them to the presentation.

We wanted to plan a happy hour for Book Challenge participants on Wednesday, but it looks like there are other events going on all night! So we're just going to adjourn to the hotel bar following our presentation. Feel free to join us!

U City Totals for Auguest

Pages 33,130
Participants: 13

3 of us finished War and Peace this month so watch out for our page averages!

question from Marshall

So I've noticed that many of the teams list how many members they have.  Do those numbers reflect how many people signed up at the beginning or do they reflect how many are active?  We have several members who haven't posted for months and I'm wondering if they should be counted because basically we are competing with only half the people who signed up.

Or should I just find a way to scare them into participating?  Hmm . . that could be fun!
