So. The Challenge starts at midnight - any questions and doubts you have feel free to ask. I will do my outmost to answer, but if I am not quick enough, Serpent is authorized to answer for me. I trust her memory better than I trust my own :-)

So happy to see the third Super Challenge about to start! Did anyone believe we would be crazy enough to do it three times??? :shock:


EDIT: I've made a thread to discuss specific books and films/audio, for suggestions, reviews, advice, etc. Here's the link:

This is only my second time doing this challenge, but it is a great challenge. Even more important, it works!

If this challenge wasn't going with other people, I'd be doing this challenge on my own.

Maybe I'll get up at midnight tonight to get some pages in.

It won't worry my wife; she knows I'm crazy.

I had hoped to be sensible and in bed sleeping by now, but it seems that won't happen, so I may well be clocking in some pages read at midnight, too.

Yes I'm sat here just twiddling my thumbs because with 20 minutes to go it feels like there's no point starting to read/watch anything that might count!

I noticed it was past midnight. One page of Russian down! :lol:

And... while one page seems like nothing, that's about what I'll be doing per day for a little bit. It will get easier, just like it did with Spanish.
