Welcome to the Quarterly Challenge where we are counting up the words in our book titles. For this challenge, ALL words count! Also, ampersands, abbreviations, single letters or numerals count as words. Hyphenated words count as one word. Subtitles also count in the word total, if it shows as the title on GR. So:

Ryker - 1 word
RoomHate - 1 word
Stuck-Up Suit - 2 words
A to Z - 3 words
Magic & Mistletoe - 3 words
The V Card - 3 words
A Quick Bite - 3 words
Red Dirt Heart 2 - 4 words
Hottie Scotty and Mr. Porter - 5 words
10 Ways To Steal Your Lover - 6 words
An Offer From A Gentleman: The Epilogue II - 8 words

To complete a number in this challenge, you need to read five books with that number of words in the title. There is no minimum page count for this challenge, rereads and audiobooks are allowed. You must preselect your goal, but are free to increase if your reading time allows. You do not need to preselect the specific numbers you plan to complete, just which level.

Levels:
One is the Loneliest Number
- Complete any number. (5 Books)
Two's Company - Complete any two numbers. (10 Books)
Three's a Crowd - Complete any three numbers. (15 Books)
The Third Degree - Complete three numbers in sequence, i.e. 2, 3 & 4 or 5, 6 & 7. (15 Books)
Take Five - Complete any five numbers. (25 Books)
High Five - Complete any five numbers in sequence. (25 Books)
The Seven Year Itch - Complete any seven numbers. (35 Books)
Seventh Heaven - Complete any seven numbers in sequence. (35 Books)

Better by the Dozen Bonus: Read books with a number, numeral or ordinal in the title. You can only count each number once. You can read as many books as you find for the bonus, but they can't be used elsewhere in the challenge.

Baker's Dozen Bonus: Get your bonus books in sequence! They don't have to be read in order, but no number can be skipped.

You can use any book you read, but to make them count you need to get enough of the same number word titles! The only difference between the any number levels and the any number in sequence levels is that the numbers you use have to be in order. For example, finishing 2, 3 and 5 would complete Three's a Crowd, but to complete The Third Degree you would have to complete numbers 2, 3 and 4 because they are in order.

You are free to update your initial post throughout the challenge, but please repost upon completion! It helps the host acknowledge completions and everyone loves to see what others are reading too!

MountainKat | 10296 comments Just FYI, you aren't limited to the numbers I used in the examples! You just need to have at least five books with titles that have the same number of words - even if it that number is 10 or 12!

December 15, 2017 through March 14, 2018

Welcome to the Quarterly Challenge where we are counting up the words in our book titles. For this challenge, ALL words count! Also, ampersands, abbreviations, single letters or numerals count as words. Hyphenated words count as one word. Subtitles also count in the word total, if it shows as the title on GR. So:

Ryker - 1 word
RoomHate - 1 word
Stuck-Up Suit - 2 words
A to Z - 3 words
Magic & Mistletoe - 3 words
The V Card - 3 words
A Quick Bite - 3 words
Red Dirt Heart 2 - 4 words
Hottie Scotty and Mr. Porter - 5 words
10 Ways To Steal Your Lover - 6 words
An Offer From A Gentleman: The Epilogue II - 8 words

To complete a number in this challenge, you need to read five books with that number of words in the title. There is no minimum page count for this challenge, rereads and audiobooks are allowed. You must preselect your goal, but are free to increase if your reading time allows. You do not need to preselect the specific numbers you plan to complete, just which level.

Levels:
One is the Loneliest Number - Complete any number. (5 Books)
Two's Company - Complete any two numbers. (10 Books)
Three's a Crowd - Complete any three numbers. (15 Books)
The Third Degree - Complete three numbers in sequence, i.e. 2, 3 & 4 or 5, 6 & 7. (15 Books)
Take Five - Complete any five numbers. (25 Books)
High Five - Complete any five numbers in sequence. (25 Books)
The Seven Year Itch - Complete any seven numbers. (35 Books)
Seventh Heaven - Complete any seven numbers in sequence. (35 Books)

Better by the Dozen Bonus: Read books with a number, numeral or ordinal in the title. You can only count each number once. You can read as many books as you find for the bonus, but they can't be used elsewhere in the challenge.

Baker's Dozen Bonus: Get your bonus books in sequence! They don't have to be read in order, but no number can be skipped.

You can use any book you read, but to make them count you need to get enough of the same number word titles! The only difference between the any number levels and the any number in sequence levels is that the numbers you use have to be in order. For example, finishing 2, 3 and 5 would complete Three's a Crowd, but to complete The Third Degree you would have to complete numbers 2, 3 and 4 because they are in order.

By the Numbers Quarterly Challenge
December 15, 2017 through March 14, 2018

Welcome to the Quarterly Challenge where we are counting up the words in our book titles. For this challenge, ALL words count! Also, ampersands, abbreviations, single letters or numerals count as words. Hyphenated words count as one word. Subtitles also count in the word total, if it shows as the title on GR. So:

To complete a number in this challenge, you need to read five books with that number of words in the title. There is no minimum page count for this challenge, rereads and audiobooks are allowed. You must preselect your goal, but are free to increase if your reading time allows. You do not need to preselect the specific numbers you plan to complete, just which level.

Levels:
One is the Loneliest Number - Complete any number. (5 Books)
Two's Company - Complete any two numbers. (10 Books)
Three's a Crowd - Complete any three numbers. (15 Books)
The Third Degree - Complete three numbers in sequence, i.e. 2, 3 & 4 or 5, 6 & 7. (15 Books)
Take Five - Complete any five numbers. (25 Books)
High Five - Complete any five numbers in sequence. (25 Books)
The Seven Year Itch - Complete any seven numbers. (35 Books)
Seventh Heaven - Complete any seven numbers in sequence. (35 Books)

Better by the Dozen Bonus: Read books with a number, numeral or ordinal in the title. You can only count each number once. You can read as many books as you find for the bonus, but they can't be used elsewhere in the challenge.

Baker's Dozen Bonus: Get your bonus books in sequence! They don't have to be read in order, but no number can be skipped.

You can use any book you read, but to make them count you need to get enough of the same number word titles! The only difference between the any number levels and the any number in sequence levels is that the numbers you use have to be in order. For example, finishing 2, 3 and 5 would complete Three's a Crowd, but to complete The Third Degree you would have to complete numbers 2, 3 and 4 because they are in order.
