Feeling like you have no money to spend on books right now?



Then this is the challenge for you!

This will be a reading challenge which runs from July 1st to July 31st 2016 Inclusively. Results will be announced on August 1st.

The goal of this challenge is to read books that you haven't paid for...

?

er, not like that!

Books can be from a library, a free download from amazon/smashwords/B&N etc., a review copy from an author/publisher/netgalley/edelweiss etc., a book that you have won, or even a loan or a gift from a friend ☺



As long as your book didn't cost you anything, it counts! (We will take your word for it)

Scoring-
* 1 point per book read and reviewed (review guidlines apply) 2 points if the book is over 450 pages, 3 points if the book is over 750 pages.
* * Buddy reads (which take place within our group) will gain the team 1 bonus point for books under 450 pages, 2 bonus points for books 450 pages to 749 pages, and 3 bonus points for books longer than 750 pages.

Rules:
* Books must be at least 100 pages in length, 150 pages for middle grade books, and 300 pages for poetry books/books written in verse.
* Books must be read between July 1st and July 31st (inclusively)
You can find our regular challenge rules here: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...
* Manga, picture books, books with more pictures than words do not count. You may read non-fiction for this challenge, but if your book has mainly pictures, you will not be able to use it (eg: a cookery book which is mainly pictures would not count)
* Your book must be a freebie to count (or if buddy reading and your buddy has a free copy - that also counts)

This challenge will be a team challenge. When signing up please let us know if you want to join a 'Serious' team (reading 12 books or more), a 'medium' team (reading 8-12 books) or a 'Just for fun' team (reading any number of books). You may also choose to only take part in the 'solo' part of the challenge (those people in teams will be automatically entered into the solo challenge as well).

message 7: by Karen (new)

Karen Barber | 10002 comments Love this idea-will beg books from friends and hit the library! Exam marking until 25th July, so I'll have to go solo again. Much prefer being in a team, but don't want to make it awkward with erratic reviewing!
