Series Read-Along, Tug-of-War!



This is a two month challenge running from the 1st of November to the 31st of December 2017.

The aim of this challenge is to read as many series/sequels as you can, before the new year. However this year there will be an added element - A Tug of War!



Participants will be split into two teams - Team Abbie and Team Sarah, and the two teams will compete against each other to see which team can read the most!

Points:
Points will be earned in 2 ways, firstly you will earn points based on the series position of the books you read - so the 1st book in a series will earn you 1 point, the 2nd book will earn you 2 points, the 3rd book will earn you 3 points and so on, up to a maximum of 6 points.
Secondly you will earn points based on the number of pages you read, so...
• 100 - 199 pages = 1 point
• 200 - 299 pages = 2 points
• 300 - 399 pages = 3 points
• 400 - 499 pages = 4 points
• 500 - 599 pages = 5 points
• 600+ pages = 6 points
(maximum of 6 points per book)
• Buddy reads DOUBLE your points score, so a 300 page book + buddy read = 6 points. 600 page book + buddy read = 12 points. (Bonus points for buddy reads will only be given if the buddy read has taken place in our group.)

Rules:
• Books must be part of a series to count.
• Books must be at least 100 pages in length - 150 pages for middle grade books and poetry books/books written in verse. (Poetry books will only be worth a third of the points.)
• Note; series Novellas between 50 - 100 pages will be worth 0.5 points. Other Novellas will be worth 1 point no matter their position in the series.
• Manga and illustrated books will earn 1/3 points, and will not earn points for series position.
• Books must be started and finished between November 1st - December 31st 2017.
• Re-reads are allowed as long as it is at least a year since you last read the book, and you write a new review/status updates with new details.
• You can find our regular challenge rules here: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

This challenge will be a team challenge. When signing up please let us know how many books you think you will manage to read per month, taking into account any of the holidays you may celebrate this November/December. This will help us to make the teams fair.

You may also sign up as a solo participant, please let us know when signing up if you would like to do this.

**Please only sign up for a team if you genuinely plan on taking part, as your team will lose out if you sign up and then do not participate**

Team sign-ups will close at 00:01 on Tuesday 24th of October. After this time you may sign up as a solo participant only.

I'll discuss it with Abbie, we might be able to do it at 1/3 of the regular points again ☺

I can read between 15-20 per month... maybe more. Will we get "docked" if we read more than what we say we will read?


message 42: by ✨Skye✨ (new)

✨Skye✨ | 3161 comments I'd like to join in, I usually read 6-12 books per month, so 12-24 over the 2 months :) I know that's a wide range, but I can't really anticipate what the next couple months will be like for me in terms of my free time.

No, you won't get docked. It's just to give us a rough estimate. We understand that with the holidays coming up peoples reading may differ from the rest of the year, so we didn't want to base it off your reading challenges like we usually do.

Jordan | 95 comments That sounds fun. I can read about 8-12 a month
