This Challenge was inspired by the book Forrest Gump and the following Chocolate Tasting Wheel created by Mont Blanc Gourmet. Forrest Gump is one of my all time favorite movies/books and, well, I don't know about anyone else, but I love reading and chocolates. I thought creating a reading challenge which combined the three would be an excellent idea. Hopefully you agree. Granted with Valentine's Day just around the corner, you can bet that had some influence as well.

Duration: Year

Levels:
Dusted; Read 1 - 3 Books
Dipped; Read 4 - 6 Books
Coated; Read 7 - 9 Books
Marbled; Read 10 - 12 Books
Chocolate Centered; Read 13 - 15 Books
Solid Chocolate; Read 16+ Books

Rules of Play:
You may tackle this challenge in one of two ways--let the tasting wheel be your guide or the chocolate manufacturers. If you are truly ambitious, you may do both. First, select one or more words on the Chocolate Tasting Wheel (pictured above with words listed below) or one or more of the names of the chocolate manufacturers (listed in the following post). Then, do one of the following two things:

- Do a Spell-It-Out Challenge. Using the word(s) you've chosen, spell the word(s) out using the first letter in the book's title, the first letter in the author's first or last name, or the first letter of a character's first, last, or nick-name. As always, if the first letter of a title starts with 'A', 'An', 'The', etc., you may use the first letter of the second word in the title to spell out your chosen word. FYI, you can opt to do a combination of any of the above.

- Read books for which the word(s) you've selected are portrayed on the cover OR incorporated within the title OR are in some way introduced in the book. If the introduction isn't obvious, site the page where the item was a topic of discussion. For instance, if someone stated they'd rather be tarred and feathered, you can mark that bad boy off your list. (Yes, I am cringing at the thought of tar and chocolate being combined. *Shudder*)

Wild Card: You may eliminate ONE item from any tier/category by substituting a book with Chocolate in the title or on the cover. Sometimes knocking an item off the list can be hard, this is your way around it.

Example of a Spell-It-Out:

C - Cat from Up From the Grave by Jeaniene Frost
L - Love Water Memory by Jennie Shortridge
A - Alex Flinn author of Towering
Y - The Yellow Line by Kitrin Haas

Barb So I could choose any combination of the words on the wheel and/or manufacturers of chocolate to spell out in the next year? I just want to be sure I'm reading it correctly before I commit to the challenge!

Lisarenee ran to do an errand. But, yes, Barb, I believe that is one option, the Spell-It-Out one.


message 11: by Barb (new)

Barb Thanks :) But I wanted to check on which word/s are required -- can we choose any combination, or are we supposed to pick one 'arm' of the wheel and choose all our words from that arm? Either is ok, I just want to make sure I do it right :)

Yep. You can choose to do a portion of one or both. Just set yourself a goal and go with it. The time frame is a year from when you start. If after that you wish to set new goals, that's fine too.
