Duration: August 1 to August 31

Levels:
◆ Maze runner: 3-5 books
◆ Maze wanderer: 6-8 books
◆ Maze explorer: 9-12 books
◆ Maze master: 13+ books


Rules:
Using the maze displayed above, choose one of the four entry points (North, East, South or West) then read your way to the red centre of the maze. If you're feeling adventurous, you can read your way back out again.

To make your way through the maze, you need to make a series of turns. Count the number of letters in the title or the total number of pages in your book. An odd number will let you turn left and an even number will let you turn right.

For Example:

A Fistful of Charms by Kim Harrison has 16 letters in the title. Therefore, it would allow you to make a right hand turn.

Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris has 17 letters in the title which would allow you to turn left.

The paperback version of Vicious by V.E. Schwab has 368 pages according to Amazon and would allow you to make a right hand turn.

The paperback version of The Maze Runner by James Dashner, according to Amazon has 375 pages which would allow you to make a left hand turn.


All book formats allowed (ebooks, audiobooks, graphic novels, paperbacks, etc.) and there is no minimum page limit.

Example:

description                                                                                description

I started at the West entry, turned right, then left, then right, then left and then left again to reach the red centre.

Maze runner - West entry to centre
Right turn - The Fault in Our Stars 18 letters
Left turn - The Night Circus 387 pages
Right turn - Life of Pi 8 letters
Left turn - Forbidden Fruit 301 pages
Left turn -The Gospel of Loki 15 letters

Such a cool concept, so I'm in. I will use the same path as Anita and Kellie, but will go the other direction so I'm not a total copy cat.

Amazing August
Duration:
8/1/2014 - 8/31/2014

Using the maze displayed above, choose one of the four entry points (North, East, South or West) then read your way to the red centre of the maze. If you're feeling adventurous, you can read your way back out again.

To make your way through the maze, you need to make a series of turns. Count the number of letters in the title or the total number of pages in your book. An odd number will let you turn left and an even number will let you turn right.


I started at the East
