Series Challenge
Our second quarterly challenge is a series reading challenge. All you have to do is read books that are part of a series! Easy, right? Comment to sign-up and with any questions about the challenge.

Rules
*Books must be read and reviewed from April 1st to June 30th.
*Books must be 100 pages to count (using the most rated edition on goodreads)
**Books read that are under 100 pages will count toward page counts
**Books that are DNFed can count toward pages. A review and/or status updates is still required
*Manga and graphic novels can be read and will count for ¼ of the listed page count--they will count toward pages only
*Five detailed status updates can be used in place of a review
*Buddy reads must take place within this group to count for bonus points
*You must make a minimum of five comments on a buddy read to earn points

Points
*Points for a book will be awarded based on the number the book is in the series. So book #3 in a series will earn three points.
*Max number of points for a book in a series is 7. So book #8 in a series would earn 7 points.
*Five points for every 1000 pages read.
*Manga/graphic novels count for ¼ of the listed page count.
*Five points for reading the group book of the month (each month the challenge runs) in addition to series points, if it is in a series.
*Buddy reads will double your points for that book. So a buddy read of The Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter #7), for example, will earn you 14 points.

Haha, yes same here, but at least this helps me to push through some :)


message 32: by Ashley (new)

Ashley (ashezbookz) | 1019 comments a lot of mine are re-reads because it's been FOREVER since I even looked at the series - but hey, I have a TBR for ages lol - and you're right! It's definitely made me push through and even make the list

Jamie Can novellas (under 100 pages) for a series count for pages?


message 34: by Alaina, Head of Monthly Challenges & Keeper of BR Threads (new)

Alaina (ameserole) | 53538 comments Mod
If they are under 100 they will count for page points and that’s it

Jamie Can I count Star Wars books as a generic series? Some are more standalones while others are broken down to specific series but looking at generally reading books off this list: https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/1...

let me ask the other mods about that so I can give you the correct answer.

Okay so since these are on a list in listopia, it wouldn't count as a series BUT it would count if you could find it as a series on the author's site.


message 46: by Jamie (last edited Mar 14, 2018 05:41PM) (new)

Jamie It is tricky because Star Wars is in general considered a series (either legends [Pre Disney] or Disney Canon) but when you have 50+ (or there about) authors that contribute gets to be a jumbled mess that no single author can often take credit for. But characters/places, etc do overlap even by the different authors. I figured there is no official # order on most (so lots of vol 1/novella). I also found this off a paragraphs series link on on of them (not directly of listopia) https://www.goodreads.com/series/8992... as well if that changes it. Otherwise major drat since I have been really wanting to get back into the books. Thanks for checking though Alaina!
