message 1: by Jonel (new)

Jonel Welcome to our Winter seasonal read-a-thon. This read-a-thon runs from Dec22/15 to Mar19/16.

Not only are we counting the pages that we read, but there is also a bonus challenge this time. For every book that you read with a title starting with one of the letters in the bonus word give yourself 1 point, if the author's name starts with a letter in the bonus word give yourself 2 points. Watch for our bonus word coming soon

For example (if WINTER were our bonus word):

Nothing Lasts Forever by Sidney Sheldon = 1 point for title
OR
Fire in the Blood by Dale Ibitz = 2 bonus points for author
OR
Winter Swans by Danica Winters = 1 point for title, 2 points for author = 3 bonus points

Be sure to tally your pages and bonus points separately. The person with the most bonus points at the end of the challenge will get to choose a spring related word for the next quarter.

To sign up simply start yourself a post to track what you've read during the read-a-thon. Edit your post throughout the read-a-thon to let everyone know which books you've read & your total number of pages.

Here is a a template for your post:

Wait shouldn't it be 3? 1 point for "Red" and 2 points for "Aveyard"?I'm confused now.

No worries at all Aubrey, I'm just a little behind on the updates.

message 44: by Becky (new)

Becky (becksnbooks) Can I just get a clarification of rules, can you get more than three points for any one book? I read Books of Blood by Clive Barker and counted it as three points. Would it be four since the title has two words in it that start with "B"? What about the author? If the author were called Bradley Barker or something instead, would that be four points, or just two?

Also (sorry for the barrage of questions!), does it matter which word in the title starts with a letter from BLIZZARD? The Boy in the Suitcase starts with "B", so that would count, but would Sandry's Book count, even though "Book" is not the first word in the title?

Ashley (JaffaCaffa) (jaffacaffa) | 166 comments I was gonna include illustrators as part of the authors since it made sense when I read a couple graphic novels, but now some of my "normal" books have illustrations in them and it feels like I'm "cheating" by including double authors names. Should I remove the illustrators and just stick with the one author?

3 points is the max you can get. Also only the first word of the title counts (not including A/The/etc.) so Sandry's book wouldn't count. :)

Ashley, thank you! I thought that's how it went, but this is my first time doing a seasonal read-a-thon so I wanted to double check :)
