reading the seasons

Read books for each task listed. Some (but not all) tasks will have opportunities to collect bonus points.

You can read one book for every task or read multiple books for some tasks. (For example - you could choose to just focus on a few. That's fine - you can claim points for each one that fits).

The aim of the game is to score as many points as possible by the end of the quarter.

Scoring: Score 1 point for each book read that fits a task plus 2 points for each bonus task.

EXAMPLE:
TASK:
Read a book set in USA (Bonus: set in Atlanta or Memphis)

You read a book set in California = 1 point for USA : Total 1 point

You read a book set in Memphis = 1 point for USA + 2 points for Memphis: Total 3 points
