Group challenge starting February 1 (Uno)

I am joining a group challenge that runs February 1-April 30.  We work together playing “Uno” hands against other teams.  We get points for each book we read that fulfills the criteria.  Since I am considered a slow to medium speed reader, I was placed on a team with faster readers and slower readers to even out the number of books each team normally reads per month.

I love working on the group challenges since it helps keep me on track for my annual goal.  Being accountable to a team pushes me forward.  The hard part for me is that the books don’t count if I start reading them before February 1 and I usually log my books as I open them the first time.  I can’t do that for this challenge.

I have played this game before, and the challenge to this is to keep track of ALL of the characters and locations as I am reading.  It is fun, and especially fun to work as a team to get all of the cards completed.  Here are the things I need to look for.
