Lanelle | 3205 comments Rules -
1. You must read 12 different books. You may not count one book for two tasks even if the tasks are from different sites.
2. You may not combine books with the Monthly Challenge.
3. The challenge is from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016. You must start and complete your books within the year AND within the time that you start the challenge. If you are late to start the challenge, you may not count books prior to when you start even if they were started/read after January 1.
4. Books must be at least 175 pages long. They may be any genre (unless specified in a task) and in any format (audiobook, ebook, hardcover/paperback). In the case where the edition you read does not specify page numbers, we will go with the edition from the Goodread’s search function.
5. If a task refers to the title, the subtitle doesn’t count unless specified. Be careful and make sure you read the instructions carefully.
6. If a task refers to the cover, it will be based on the cover of the issue you decide to read.

Lanelle | 3205 comments I've decided the hardest part is the "set in..." books. If I can read those books, all the rest of the required books will just happen with everyday normal reading.

Yep, 34 out of 194 is only the beginning :)

I would like to read all 194 books, but I'm pretty sure I will not be able to find the location books. Oh, well. I will try to complete as many of the sites as I can.


message 15: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 49990 comments You do know there are only 74 sites. You need to read 12 books (for the original challenge), plus 70 (one from each of the remaining sites) in order to get the "all tasks" badge. So that's a minimum of 82 books (if my math is correct).


message 16: by Lanelle (last edited Jul 27, 2016 07:22AM) (new)

Lanelle | 3205 comments Thanks, Janice. You're right. My math was wrong. I was going for the total number possible. I'm shooting for the "all tasks" badge, but I also want to see how close I can get to reading every task. (off to fix my other posts)


message 17: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 49990 comments Reading each task would be quite an accomplishment! It would take me a few years to complete them all.


message 18: by Cherie (new)

Cherie (crobins0) | 20275 comments You gave us great choices though! I have a book for every site but two now. Still looking for a waterfall cover.


message 19: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 49990 comments Ha! I can see it now. We'll be continuing this challenge into next year, just like the series kill challenge.


message 20: by Lanelle (new)

Lanelle | 3205 comments I've reached the halfway point for reading all 194 tasks. Yay!


message 21: by Lanelle (new)

Lanelle | 3205 comments I've passed the three quarters point and read a book for each site! I'm off to ask for a badge or two.


message 22: by Cherie (last edited Nov 16, 2016 03:29PM) (new)

Cherie (crobins0) | 20275 comments Congratulations, Lanelle! You really have some great titles on your list. Wouldn't it be fun if we could compile a list of the titles of all of the books that all of us read for each task?

It would be interesting to see which tasks no one read a book for? I managed to list a book for all of the tasks, but so many remain unread as I approach the end of my 1 book per site. You read many more than the minimum 1 for a lot of the sites. How many books did you actually read? I think Janice may ask that at the end, but not sure.
