YES! Very much excited! And I am already digging the tweaks.
Good! :D

WHAAA...!!!! LOVE IT!!!! You're totally messing with my plans to complete my MT. TBR challenge, but that's cool.

I've spiked my own so thoroughly, it only seemed fair to drag everyone else down with me. :D ;)

Pffft.

We tried to keep all the book tasks wide open so there are a lot of options (for both fiction and non). Who knows? Maybe it will end up helping you complete your TBR challenge? :)
MbD took the words right out of my mouth -- I was going to say, you'll just have to do your best to work around the book task options ... like all of us! :D We really did try to be as inclusive as possible, though.

Yeah, I know ... And I am really looking forward to it!!

It's going to be so much fun! And look at that amazing Advent Calendar!

Eep! No time to wallow in a post-bingo coma. I hope I have the energy for this! @.@

You can do this - remember it's tasks OR books (or all). There's no getting it wrong, and I think most of the doors offer easy, book related tasks. Although you kicked SO much ass on Halloween bingo, I don't doubt you can scream through the books for this one too. :)
Exactly! That said, I'm already looking forward to your posts for the non-book tasks as well.

It depends on whether I have work or not. I can't read at the rate I did when I'm working. But work or not, I'm going to try, gosh darn it! Doing Halloween Bingo with everyone was so much fun! :D

Yay! I loved this last year, so I'm excited to play again!
Great! :)

Just when I was planning to get back to the books that I put on the back-burner...
Perhaps you might still be able to use them here? Since you can complete a square in another way than by reading, there should even be room for longer books, too ...

I meant books I'd already started. It's a great idea though.
Oh my god, an Advent Calendar. I think last year I arrogantly claimed I was going to play then had time to do none. But an advent calendar, I'm weak in the knees.

There's just something about the pull of all those little doors... ;-)

Amazing!
We had a lot of fun putting this together. Hope it'll be as much fun to play, too!
Cute calendar!
:) 'Tis the season ...

Ohhhhhh goodie! I can't wait! I love the Festive Tasks game.
And I can't wait to see how you'll be organizing your square markings this time around. I'm still in awe of your system from last year!

Actually TA you just brought up something I hadn't thought about - we should post a screenshot of the card for anyone that wants to use it. Trying to do the old 'drag it off the screen' will not work here.
The very first post is going to include a screenshot of the entire card in one image ... but yeah, we should probably add that to the instructions. If anybody wants to use an image of the card, they will need to copy the image we're using in the very first post.

Thank you! Yes, I definitely need a good image file to design my card. Now I'm going to have to do some image searches to find new markers - my old blue and white snowflakes aren't going to work. Maybe little Christmas trees... hmmm....

Oh dear, my reading plans for the rest of the year are sunk! (In a good way)
Fear the drowning deep!

OMG. I wonder how many of my Netgalley books would fit squares?
Murder by Death 3 years ago
I'll bet you can make most, if not all of them fit. We tried to keep the books wide open so we don't blow goals too badly. :D

Ooooohhh! Very cool! I'm looking forward to seeing the details. Like Laura, I'm wondering how/if my upcoming ARCS will fit. :) :)
I hope they will. All the book tasks come with several alternatives!
