(5 points): Read a book in for one task that could have applied to another task as well. If a book applies to one other task, you will receive 5 style points. If it applies to two other tasks, you will receive 10 points...and so on.
(10 points): Inquiring minds want to know your thoughts about the books you’ve read, so help us grow our to-be-read lists by posting a 100+ word review with your completed task.
Lost in Translation
(10 points): Since many tasks often focus on English-speaking settings and authors, take the opportunity to read books that were originally published in languages other than English.
(5 to 25 points): Put down the bestseller list and read something with a bit more mileage on it. Based on a book's original publication date, style points will be awarded according to the following scale:
-25 to 75 years old: 5 points
-76 to 150 years old: 10 points
-151 to 250 years old: 15 points
-251 to 400 rs old: 20 points
-400+ years old: 25 points
(1610 and older)
(5 to 25 points): Receive extra points for reading books according to the following scale:
-500 Pages: 5 Points

-1000+ Pages: 25 Points
(100 points): Complete all Reading with Style tasks.
(200 points): Complete all Reading with Style tasks and BtS tasks.
A note on YA: If you want to claim style points for a YA novel, you can do so--with one catch: You must have read a YA novel with a Lexile score of at least 700. Not familiar with Lexile? Want to find out if your book has a high enough score...go

Flagging a post will send it to the Goodreads Customer Care team for review. We take abuse seriously in our discussion boards. Only flag comments that clearly need our attention. As a general rule we do not censor any content on the site. The only content we will consider removing is spam, slanderous attacks on other members, or extremely offensive content (eg. pornography, pro-Nazi, child abuse, etc). We will not remove any content for bad language alone, or being critical of a particular book.
