Super Book Password: My Sign-Up

Well, of course, I'm going to sign up for my very own brand-new reading challenge. I well-remember the Super Password game show where partners gave each other clues to words that described an over all secret word or phrase and I'm looking forward to trying to come up with clues that are fair (but will still give you all a bit of trouble). Please check out the full rules for the challenge HERE. Even if you don't feel up to reading books to create clues, please feel free to sign up to guess. See you in January!

***If you would like to participate--or just make guesses--please see the appropriate link on the Super Password Headquarters Post.

I'm afraid it's not Trigger....For future guesses, there's a headquarters site (on the sidebar for Super Book Password) and a form for submitting guesses for prize points--if you'd like to get in on that.
