The 'Read-Whatever-You-Want' Challenge


The Chase is over, Jumanji is back in it's box, and that man has well and truly been hung, so now it's time to sit back, relax, and read... whatever you want!



This will be a team challenge (so that you guys can chat), but the rules are a little more relaxed, so you can read what YOU want to read ☺



Points:
*50 - 100 pages = 0.5 points
*101 - 199 pages = 1 point
*200 - 299 pages = 2 points
*300 - 399 pages = 3 points
and so on... (maximum of 6 points per book)
*Poetry/Graphic novels/illustrated books = 1/3 of above points, so a 300 page book is worth 1 point.
*Buddy reads DOUBLE your points score, so a 300 page book + buddy read = 6 points. (Bonus points for buddy reads will only be given if the buddy read has taken place in our group.)
*You may have as many re-reads as you like ☺

Rules:
* This challenge will run from September 1st to September 30th, with results announced on October 1st.
*Books started before September can be used, but you must only claim the number of pages read in September.
*Buddy reads must still have a minimum of 4 comments to count.
*4 detailed updates can be used instead of a review.

So, let us know whether you're planning on reading 8 or more books (serious), or any number of books (just-for-fun), and lets get some reading done this september ☺
