  1. The first day didn't go as well as I hoped in terms of reading but I LOVED the Book Scavenger Hunt challenge! Have a great day everyone!

  2. Enjoying the challenge so far! This is such a little thing -- but can I ask if it would be possible for the date to be added after the day One! For instance, above all the links - it says (paraphrasing) "Please link your progress for day ONE!" Could we add Monday, Aug 18 after that? I know it should be so simple -- but it would be nice to be able to double-check at a glance....
    It's a thought only - thank you again for all the work that goes into this!

    1. That's part of the linky itself, not the post, all of which have been drafted and scheduled already. We'll consider this for next time. Thanks, Cassie!

      If it's an issue this time around, you can check the date of the post itself (at the top of the page) and go back a day.

  3. CRAP, I can't link my update anymore?! :(

    1. The linky is only open for 24 hours. Just link up on the current open linky; people are unlikely to come back to view these anyway.

    2. OK, thx Amanda!

  4. Oops! I linked my day 2 update instead!

  5. My link on this page is for TODAY. I'm a NEWBIE! This is my first Read-A-Thon with you and I was going to go back and fix the link but I can't. It's closed. I'll have 2 days in a row with the SAME LINK! I understand how it works now. Sorry about MY confusion!
