Here is our group's first team challenge!

How-To Play
Each team will get a card with the same 24 cover categories, but each will be randomized differently.

Every Friday one of the categories will be called (the same one for all teams). You then have to find a book that matches it. Once you've read it, write a review letting us know what you thought (a few lines is fine) and then post it in your team thread. After all team members have read their books, your square will get a stamp.

There is no deadline to finish a book, but a book cannot be started prior to the category being called.

Deadline to signup is July 4th . Teams will be created on July 5th, hopefully that will give you plenty of time to decide on both a captain and a team name. All the captain has to do is notify me that they are ready for their stamp and the post #s where I can find each team member's post of what they read.

Challenge begins: July 12, 2013
Ends: when the first team calls a valid bingo

All formats of books are allowed for this challenge.
Books must be at least 150 pages long (if reading an ebook, please check the paperback or hardcover edition for page count).

If this sounds interesting to you and you can commit to reading a book a week, please sign up HERE.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment below.

Here's an in-depth explanation on how the cover categories (CC) work


Let's say the CC called is single woman, then your team might read the following:

team member 1 A Love Surrendered (Winds of Change, #3) by Julie Lessman
team member 2 A Daughter's Inheritance (The Broadmoor Legacy, #1) by Tracie Peterson
team member 3 Pretense by Lori Wick

You may choose any genre to read as long as the cover works for what's called. And you don't have to finish the book before the next CC is called, but when/if your team starts to get 3 or 4 in a row you'll want to concentrate on getting those books done first.

Also, when you finish a book all you have to do is post what book you read, the dates you read it (start and finish), your rating, and your review (you can copy & paste it or just post a link to it - whichever is easier). Once all members of a team have read a book for the CC, your captain will let me know and I will stamp your card.

You can all read the same book, all read different, or two of you read the same and one different - whatever you want. The cover just has to match whatever is called.

I hope this explains it better! This is my first time hosting a team challenge and I think I may not have explained everything very well in the beginning - sorry about that! If you have any other questions, just ask.

WAYS TO WIN:


Five in a row (any direction), the four corners or a postage stamp in any corner would all be a valid bingo. Here's a picture that shows what each of them are:

I know this picture shows two postage stamps, but only one would be required.

No.

Thanks for asking, forgot about this - sorry!
