1 - 28 February 2017

This challenge is to see if you can find all the words listed below within your reading for the month. You do not need to preselect a level.

The maximum number of words for each book is THREE. There is no page limit.

0-3 words : better luck next time
3-5 words : warming up
6-8 words : getting hotter
9-10 words : CHAMPION hunter!

February
authentic
bacon
blink
challenge
diary
event
farmer
owl
predict
sudden


Bonus
For our over-achievers who just need some extra words because the above weren't enough...

Unlike with the 10 words above - you must find the EXACT word to claim these bonus words, and I try to make them hard.

autopsy
blackout
chop
horrors
pineapple




To prove that you have found the word, please quote the page, percentage or LOC (Kindle) and include the sentence in which it appears.

Audiobooks are allowed so long as you can quote the page/%/LOC and the sentence. (Eg Using whispersync or finding that sentence in some other way.)

You must find the actual word or the word's root word must be at the core with the meaning essentially remaining the same ~ just turned into a noun, adjective, adverb etc. No prefixes or hyphenated extensions. An extension is allowed where it is often the accepted spelling eg goodbye or good-bye.

Where a word has more than one meaning, either meaning may be used. Eg coast (beachfront) or coast (moving without effort) etc

Please post all entries, updates, final posts and questions in this thread.


Examples for 'Reversal'
Reverse - Laser Visions √ 15 May
p50-51 : There were a couple of bands Tam had that this person didn't, but none in the reverse.

Reversing - Sunset √ 10 Jul
p204 : Reversing his grip on his katana, he held it out to Nick.

Jane (PS) | 19628 comments Tips for finding words - courtesy of Jennifer ♔Princess Penguin♔

Using Google books:
~Go here https://books.google.com/bkshp?hl=en&...
~Type in the name of your book
~Select your book
~On the left about midway down there will be a search bar, type your word in there.

Couple of things you need to know...
~you need to check every variety of the word you want so, let's say GROUP doesn't show up you would also need to type in GROUPS/ED/ING
~Unfortunately, 99% of the books on Google does not list page numbers (at least in my experience)

Using Amazon:
~You search for your book
~Once on your book page make sure you are on a version that is paperback or hardcover (Kindle editions will not work)
~On the left there will be a picture of your book and it should have "Search Inside" above it
~Click on the book and the search bar will be inside

You will not need to search separately for plurals but you will still need to search separately for -ed and -ing


***
You can also search for words in all the books loaded on your Kindle.

On the home page, use the 'search' function.
~ type in the word and select 'search my items'.

·Post 33

5/10

·AUTHENTIC
·BACON - The Foul Mouth and the Cat Killing Coyotes location 480, 10% (2/10/17)
You get twenty or so minutes of breakfast, during which I wolfed down some serious bacon and sausage, not to mention eggs, a bunch of tater-tots, and two cups of coffee. Fucking yes, coffee!
·BLINK - Pirate 21% (2/17/17)
Emma could only blink as crazy dude took his crazy to a higher level arguing with his computer.
·CHALLENGE - Pirate 71% (2/17/17)
"Unhand me!" The scream and yelled words from outside on the street made him grin. At last, someone had chosen to challenge him. Time to wrap up his business here.
·DIARY
·EVENT - The Foul Mouth and the Cat Killing Coyotes location 312, 7% (2/10/17)
"He doesn't want every time you went to the bathroom or diddled yourself, just the important events." "That's still bullshit…also…please never say 'diddled' in front of me ever again…"
·FARMER
·OWL
·PREDICT
·SUDDEN - 1-800-Mischief location 101, 19% (2/1/17)
A car oncoming the perpendicular intersection screeches to a halt at the sudden change in signals. As I sail through the intersection I swear I can hear him shouting into his cell phone that the light didn't even turn yellow.

Bonus
1/5

·AUTOPSY
·BLACKOUT
·CHOP - The Foul Mouth and the Cat Killing Coyotes location 1821, 37% (2/10/17)
The Coyotes weren't out of sight before I slapped T-Bone out of his post-fight euphoria with a heavy chop against his shoulder. "Don't just stand there! Get in your car and pull around back."

January
·CLOT

The speech was all corporate-babble-gook. I was used to hearing it at work anyway. Normally it didn't bother me that I had no idea what was going on. Here, it could be fatal. Or soultal. Or something.

Jane (PS) | 19628 comments Hi Calila - It has to be one word. I've just double-checked the online dictionary and they spell blackout as one word for its various meanings.

Just something weird with my phone app - it drops off words at the end of the line in the GR app on my iphone. Anyway, the answer is still no. I added the bonus words to make it really difficult so it has to be horrors with the s :D

(Don't feel compelled to look for the bonus words. I don't ;)
