ladymurmur | 730 comments This challenge could be fun - a literary scavenger hunt.

https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

ules:

No books to read except the books you would read anyway, though all books used in this challenge must be read between January 1st 2016 and January 1st 2017. You can use books you did not finish, as long as you personally spotted the item, it counts.

The item can be anywhere in the book, it can even be on the cover as a part of the cover-art, but if it’s on the cover, it has to be a book you were reading i.e. you can’t go sifting through covers of books you have no intention of reading looking for items in the scavenger hunt.

Just list the book and the author beside each item as you find them. At the very end is a NSFW round. It's not overly offensive...more Baywatch Nights than Game of Thrones. That said, because it's a little sexier, it's in spoilers and those who avoid sexy times in their books don't need to go there.

Just reply to this message to enter the game, and copy / paste the list into your first message.

There is a prize / prizes. Nothing expensive though everyone I send them to loves them!

That's it. Be off with you.

ladymurmur | 730 comments 2016 (thus far) lessons learned:
*For next year's thread, set up monthly reading logs first, then the alphabets
*Alphabet entries should each get their own entry, rather than groups of letters - will make updating much easier as the year progresses.
*Challenges have been hit or miss for me this year. Sometimes they're very motivating and exciting; other times they're a chore.
*I can no longer read a book just because it is the next one on my list/in my collection/on the stack. Even if it is a title that I have very much wanted to read for a long time - if it isn't the book for the mood/season/phase I'm in right now, it isn't going to cut it.
*For that ^ very reason, I'm both more likely to stop reading a book these days than I ever have before, and also to give a "not right now" book a second chance. Thus, the "on hold" shelf in addition to the "couldn't finish" shelf.
*Regardless, I'm still not convinced that I'll ever try Outlander again. Or Game of Thrones. And that's OK. :-)
*At the moment, I'm having more fun tracking my alphabets as they develop WITHOUT deliberately trying to fill certain letters. That might change as the end of year approaches, but we'll see.
*Not trying to track genre's read in a thread this year was a good choice. Might still go back and do some analysis later. Much easier to do by shelf (even if it means going back and updating some titles).

SOS: Serious Overload of Series discussion Challenges: What's the Rush > "Series Addict" Challenge ~ Part 6


message 35: by ladymurmur (new)

ladymurmur | 730 comments The end of 2016 is in site, and I've got plenty to enjoy between now and the new year - including books lined up/in progress for the last two slots of my alphabet (title starting with X, author first name starting with Q) that I'm legitimately wanting to read, not JUST because of their alphabetiness. :-)

My member list for 2017 is all set up, and I'm seeing about finalizing or tying up a few remaining challenges. A perfect, cozy way to spend a snowy afternoon.


message 36: by ladymurmur (new)

ladymurmur | 730 comments I DID IT! My personal alphabet challenge is completed for 2016! :-)

For my own reference, here are the tricksy letters (only 1 entry per category):

Title:
J,Q,U,X,Y,Z

Author (first name):
I,O,Q,U,W,X,Y,Z

Author (last name):
I,N,Q,U,X,Y,Z

Series:
E,F,H,J,Q,U,V,X,Y,Z

Since I spent so much time looking for the last few entries, I have those letters on my brain right now. I just might start the year with a few of this year's hard to find entries.
