Title: if at least one word in the title of your chosen book matches the words given, you'll earn 4 points

Gisbelle | 27299 comments Rules

For Every Participant:

1. On every Friday, a set of requirements will be posted
2. Each participant needs to read 1 book only each week
3. The point system above will tell you how many points you can earn from your chosen book
4. Everyone in the team can choose to read the same or different book
5. The book has to be at least 150 pages or more
6. Reread is NOT allowed
7. Ebooks and audiobooks are ok


For Team Leaders:

1. Team leaders are responsible for posting to claim points for their teams
2. Posting to claim the points should be done by Sunday or as late as Monday the following week
3. Posting to claim the points should be done only when all the team members finish writing the reviews
4. DO NOT edit the post after posting to claim the points (I will not check back, so it is pointless to edit your post a few days later)
5. Team leaders need to report (whether in discussion thread or through PM) if any of the team members are inactive (so that I can find a replacement)
6. If any team leader doesn't report inactive members, it is considered that they are happy with their team performance already. Therefore, I will not take any actions.


Criteria for Selecting Movies

1. Each member in the team is allowed to pick a movie
2. Each member needs to send their selected movie to the team leader (through PM)
3. The team leaders then send me all the movies their team has chosen
4. 4 movies will be randomly selected to use during the challenge

* The movies should meet the following criteria:

1. The release dates need to be 1990 or newer
2. They have to be English-speaking movies
3. They must NOT be based on any books (except classic fairytale)
4. Animations are acceptable
