But many podcasts are basically radio programs available for download...
I agree that music-focused radio shouldn't count simply because music doesn't.

You know what?

I'm just going to sign up for the original idea (100 movies + 100 books), with Spanish.

Those 100 books are going to be really tough for me, haha. But then that's the whole point of a challenge, right?

Do you mean books as opposed to book items? I'm thinking of doing my best to read a total of 100 actual books for the challenge in all my languages.

You must read really fast. I don't think I could keep that pace even in English, or at least I would not have enough time for it...

Haha the problem is that I don't :-)

So are you changing it from the half to full challenge? That's great too. Honestly. It's just that the "original idea" was actually that. And I know some still miss its simplicity :)

I'd like to ask surrealix to either change the wording to something like
"3/25 for the current star, 1 book per week to complete" (rather than finish)


Yep, this is on my list. I'll change the wording once the calculations are actually based
on stars and not the whole challenge. This will probably be in the next update, hopefully
this week.

with much hesitation that I went for audio book, since you lose the combination of audio and the visual which
you get through a film :-)


But with the audio book option, wouldn't that then make the challenge more accessible to, say, the visually impaired? Which is great. :)
