Challenge Complete: Super Password

I actually closed the Super Book Password Challenge back on September 1. It just wasn't getting at much participation as I had hoped for. But...since I posted two password clues for each category through the cancellation, I definitely think I can claim this as complete. Besides, I'm the challenge hostess so I can make the rules. Right? :-)
It's possible that I'll try to host this again in the future. I'll have to think about ways I might make it more attractive.
