Sounds fun i'm in. Random question quick as well as my entrance. um i have a book that is the first 3 books of a series wrapped up into 1, would that count as one book? Just wondering.

I'm not the official voice of the thread owner or anything, but I think if the books have been published separately before, then it should count as 3 books. =3
