  1. Does the trek start August 1st or has it already started? I noticed that there are already participants getting lots of points but most of the details state that it has to be done between August 1st and August 31st. Thanks for sponsoring this!

  2. I’d rate The Rent Collector, but it’s not listed yet on your list of 2012 releases. It won’t actually be out until next month. I’ll give it a five then.

    1. Jennie, go ahead and give yourself the points for rating it in the Rafflecopter above. I don’t post new releases until they’re available for sale online. That was one I was not aware of. I’ll put it on the list to do.

  3. Alright, I already made a mistake. (Big surprise! *with sarcastic font activated*)

    I entered a 2012 book in the 3 point ‘LDS author’ spot. Not really sure how to fix that… Maybe I’ll figure out something

    ALSO…
    You have Brooks’ The Book of Mormon Girl listed on the side under 2012 fiction. Although it came out in 2012 I’m pretty sure it’s nonfiction. (This is an FYI, I don’t think I would bother changing it if I were you)

    1. Shelly, it’s additive.

      If the book is by an LDS author (+3), AND it’s a 2012 Release (+5) = 8 pts. total. AND if the book is a prize sponsor (+10), you get a total of 18 points for finishing that book! 🙂

    1. There is a new Michael Vey that just came out, Rise of the Elgen. Prisoner of Cell 25 was last year.
