Rules of Book into the Distance:

Follows General Rules of Wobble Event

▲ Rounds 1 - 4 must be completed to consider Event 3: Discus √ COMPLETE

▲ Teams may begin to work on Event 3: Discus anytime after Heat 1 of Event 1: Page Jumping is √ COMPLETE

▲ All 4 Rounds must be completed as listed
--- no changing page counts around to different title word
--- no variations of word in title (no plurals, or "part" of word)

▲ Members may only read 1 book each Round, but there is NO requirement for all members to read for this event
3 members could read for all 12 books of the event

▲ If any Olympics game is not considered √ COMPLETE, then teams may not work on any BONUS Rounds

▲ All 4 Rounds my be repeated TWICE as a BONUS ROUNDS (for same point structure) and may only be started after all other Olympic Events (1-5, all parts to "complete" tasks) are COMPLETE.

▲ Books do NOT need to be read in order, but you only get points for books in a completed Round.
For example, if all the Iron and Pages book are finished but the Arm book does not get finished prior to Olympics ending, then there are no points given for that round.

For TITLE: It is preferable that LEAD mean the actual stone, however as it's hard to enforce, you may use the word as if it means "to lead" something. NO plurals or other variations.

For ARM: A full arm MUST be visible. You MUST be able to see full hand (no hands in pocket or tucked under a shirt) and most of the fingers (more than 3) need to be visible.

NOT Acceptable:
Maverick (Elite Ops, #2) by Lora Leigh Honor Reclaimed (HORNET, #2) by Tonya Burrows Operation Endgame (When the Mission Ends, #1) by Christi Snow The Dom Who Loved Me (Masters and Mercenaries, #1) by Lexi Blake

Acceptable:
Something About You (FBI/US Attorney, #1) by Julie James Breaking Point (I-Team, #5) by Pamela Clare

Good Rule for this: If you have to ask, then NO it does not work.
YES, it must be SAME arm, not hand of one and arm of another!
