Crazy Challenge Connection - 1000 Member Celebration!

1000 Member Celebration hosted by Crazy Challenge Connection on Goodreads.

This was a hard challenge for me to get through and I found out as I was posting the last book that I had made it a lot harder than it was supposed to be.
Task #8 I on purpose decided to read an extra book which wasn't a problem. It was task #9 I totally misunderstood. It says to go to my TBR shelf and Sort by Random, then read book #10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 or 100 on that list. Between 90 and 100 there is an OR. This I totally overlooked and instead of just reading one book for this task I read 10.
I am really pleased I still managed to complete this challenge within the required time period.


1 – Southpaw was the group’s founder and very first member, but she has since left the group. Since then, Barb, Angie, Suzanne, Chaitra and Connie N. do their best to keep the group fun and running smoothly. Read one book from any of their Goodreads shelves. Tell us who you chose, and which shelf the book is on.
NOTE: There's one Barb, one Connie N. and one Chaitra in the group, but there are two Angies and three Suzannes. If you're using their shelves for any of the tasks in this challenge, make sure you're looking at the member who's a mod :)

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien is on Angie's to-read bookshelf

2 – Read a book whose number of pages is evenly divisible by 10 or has a 10 somewhere in the total pages (610, 1038) OR read TWO books between 100-110 pages long. Tell us how many pages are in the book/s:
The Tiger Princess by Sarah Renee (340 pages)

3 – Read a book with a single-digit number in the title. The number can be spelled out or represented as a digit, but cardinal numbers only -- 3, 4, 5 -- not third, fourth, fifth.
NOTE: Stand-alone numbers only! Compound numbers (203, 84, 1776) will NOT be accepted.

Rise of The Seven by Melissa Wright

– In the upper right corner of our group’s main page, click on Members. Sort by “num comments.” Read one book from any shelf of any member (other than the mod you chose for task #1!) who has posted more than 1000 comments. Tell us which member you chose, how many comments they've made in the group, and which shelf the book is on. 
The Children of Húrin by J.R.R. Tolkien - Amalia, 1171 comments, on her to-read (among others) bookshelf.

5 – Maureen was member #600, ღ εїз ќατιε εїз ღ (Katie) was #700, Michele was #800, Liora was #900, and Courtney was #1000. Read a book in which the first letter of EVERY WORD (ALL words count!) can be found in one of their names: MAUREEN, KATIE, MICHELE, LIORA or COURTNEY (minimum two-word title).
NOTE: Choose ONE name for this task, not a combination of names:
Illicit Magic by Camilla Chafer 

6  – Read a book originally published in a year that has a 10 in it (must include both numbers, in order -- only "10" will be accepted). Tell us when the book was originally published.
Angel by L.A. Weatherly (published 2010)

7  – Go to your To-Read list on Goodreads. Sort by author, A-Z , then read the 10th book on your list.
If the 10th book is in the middle of a series that you're reading, you can read the next book in the series instead of this specific title. Also, if the 10th book is shorter than 150 pages, read book #9 or #11 on the list instead.

♦ If you want to participate in this challenge, please sign up by posting at least a partial list of the challenge requirements. This gives us a post to link you to, which you can use to update your books as the challenge progresses.

♦ Unless otherwise noted, books must be at least 150 pages long. Books may only be used for one task in this challenge, but cross-challenge posting is encouraged :) Re-reads are allowed, as long as you read the entire book and not simply skim through it.

For each book you read, please post a link to the title, and indicate the author and the date you finished reading it. If a challenge task gives several options, please make it clear which option you’ve chosen. If the task calls for an item on the cover, include a link to the book cover.* If it’s not obvious from the book title or cover, be sure to explain how your book fits the task. If you don’t, you won’t get credit for completing that task.
    * If you don’t know how to post a link to the book title, cover or author, see the instructions here: Add a link to the book title, book cover and/or author

♦ If you use books that are in a language other than English, please translate those titles into English for the purposes of our challenges, unless you plan to use that language for the entire challenge. If you do use another language for the whole challenge, please remember that the translations of exempt words/phrases -- for example, A, An and The in most spelling challenges -- would be exempt as well.

♦ When you complete the challenge, please post your entire list as a new message to make it easier for everyone to see what you’ve read :) If you do this while you still have the Edit window open, it will copy all of your formatting, etc. too. If you don’t repost your list, your name will not be added to the list of those who have completed the challenge.
