Anna (Adventures with a Book Nerd) (bookish_anna)

The Book Pool is the Prize Pool challenge for April! This month the player with the most books read from the pool, and one random participant will win an ebook of one of India R. Adams's books! Some of her books include My Wolf and Me, Blue Waters, Serenity, and Rain.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ready for the Book Pool?

If you've never played, here are the rules:

1. When you sign up pick 3 books you want to be included in the "book pool."

2. You can pick any book as long as they are YA and have been released before the challenge has started. No duplicates please.

3. Once the challenge starts you will read books from the "pool."

4. At the end of the month whoever read the most books from the pool is the champion of that month!

Have fun!

The challenge begins April 1st.
To claim points, please don't finish your books from the pool until then!

You can sign up and add books until March 31th.
After April 1st, you can join right in by claiming points - just don't add books to the pool, and let me know that you're joining if you aren't on the list yet!

Hi Leslie. The books that you want to put into the pool are combination books, meaning that they are two books in one. Plus the first book in that series has already been added into the pool. Would you like me to add books 2-4 into the book?

Hi Stephanie! Unfortunately Traitor Born isn't released until April 17, so I can't add it to the pool. Can you pick another book for me?


Anna (Adventures with a Book Nerd) (bookish_anna) This month's pool looks amazing guys! Alright everyone, it's time to tell you how to claim your points! Please remember that only books read or finished on/after April 1, 2018 can count for points. After you finish reading your book, you will need to leave a comment claiming your points. In your comment, please have your number (see comment #2, and please, please, PLEASE use the correct number, it will make it SO much easier for me when counting points), the book you read (please use the add book/author button), the date you finished it, your rating, and the number of books that you've read from the pool.
