We had this challenge two years back and it was a great success:) So, I thought of bringing this back and introducing it in a new, polished way :) [For all those interested in having a look at the previous challenge, visit here]

So, this time, around I've decided to twist things a bit and try and make the challenge a bit more difficult :D Here is the procedure of the challenge :

=> All the members will be randomly paired up. So, suppose there are 30 members signing up, we'll have 15 pairs/teams.

=> The two members of the pair have to read books according to each other's initials. So, member A reads books according to member B's initials and vice versa.

=>What do you have to spell out? Below is a list of all the things from which you have to spell out any TWO.

- Your partner's username
- The first/last name of your partner's favorite author
- Your partner's favorite color
- Your partner's hometown/country
- Your partner's favorite genre
- Your partner's DOB


So, suppose my partner's favorite color is RED. Then, I read 3 books beginning from the letters R, E, and D each. Suppose, my partner's favorite genre is HORROR, then I read 6 books beginning with H, O, R, R, O and an R again. For the DOB clue, you need to read books which have the same numbers as your partner's DOB.

=> There are specific genres for this challenge. Only books from these genres will be considered. The genres are -

Memoirs
Historical Fiction
Humor
Poetry
Paranormal
Chick-lit


=> You can read the books in any order. It isn't necessary to read the books in the same order as the characters in your name are. You can read in any order, just remember to complete each letter of your name.

=> Words like The, A, Of and all such stuff isn't counted. The first character of the real name of the book, excluding The, A...whatever, is the actual name.

TIME LIMIT OF THE CHALLENGE

Last date for signing up us 15th September, 2015.
Pairs will be formed within 20th September, 2015
start date of challenge : 21st September, 2015
End date of challenge : 30th December, 2015

There is no particular order to be followed. And it is not compulsory to read all the genres. You can stick to an one genre or experiment with the other ones.

No I meant

"=>What do you have to spell out? Below is a list of all the things from which you have to spell out any TWO."

So we'll give two clues like I may give RED as fav color and HORROR.

So do we choose one word or take letters from both.
