Note: If you are not a teen, and would still like to participate, that is perfectly fine.

The basics of the contest: A group of teens from the ToO will hopefully be reading the book Do Hard Things this month. I will post discussion threads for each chapter so that if people want to discuss what they've read with the other teens, they can do so.

How to enter: Post here that you would like to participate. Then pick up from your library or local bookstore (or wherever you can find it ;) ) the book by Alex and Brett Harris called Do Hard Things.

Suggested Schedule:

Week 1(Mon. 18-Sat. 23): Chapters 1-4
Week 2 (Mon. 25-Sat. 29): Chapters 5-8
Week 3 (Mon. 1-Sat. 5)Chapters 9-12

Following this schedule you will get done in three weeks, reading 4 chapters each week. If you need to work your reading schedule another way however, do not hesitate to do so.

This is a really good book. It is a Christian book about how to live our teen years for God. The Harris twins have also created a forum, so that once you finish the book, if you would like you can join it to talk with other teens near you and around the world. (To join the forum you must be 13 +)

This block of text should be fine for a signature. Wait, are you still reading this? Why are you reading this? Stop. Seriously.
STOP.
This sentence is true.
The sentence above is false.

I dare you not to read this.
Hey! I said not to read this.
Maybe if I talk like this.
Wait, you still see me? *sighs* I give up.

She left many of us behind. She left us heartbroken. And though we cry now there'll come a time when we'll laugh. Because we'll see her again someday. We'll be with her in heaven. And when we go to heaven she'll be there to greet us. She'll be there to say "Welcome home." -From a poem that SnC wrote about her grandmother

I looked it up and I guess it's $10.00 to download it as an ebook. :( (http://productsearch.barnesandnoble.com/search/results.aspx?store=EBOOK&WRD=do%20hard%20things%20a%20teenage%20rebellion%20against%20low)

Everyone, in case you're interested here is a video put together by the Harris twins (authors of Do Hard Things):
