RULES

*Team Roles: Assigned categories can be divvied up however each team would like. Keep in mind that for a team to complete a category, only one member of the duo needs to read a book for that category.
*Page Count: Unless the category you are completing gives a specific page count, there is NOT a minimum page count for this challenge.
*Format: You can read any format you like (eBook, audiobook, print, etc).
*Genre: As long as your book matches the instructions for the category you are completing, you can read any genre you like (picture books, poetry books, manga, travel books, fiction, nonfiction... anything goes!).
*Read Dates: You can use books you've started reading at any time, however you must finish the books on or after the challenge start date.
*Rereads: Books read for this challenge must be books you are reading for the first time (no rereads).

So, as long as you will be finishing your book for the first time during this challenge, and your book works for the category you are completing, go for it! :)

I'm not sure what book I'll start with first, since the challenge doesn't start until June 12th, but I'll let you know once I pick one. :)

Haha. I'm feeling somewhat the same way. I *think*I know what I want to start with, but the 12th feels so far away and I don't know if I can stop myself from reading certain books until then. ;)

Same! If I pick one now, I know I'll probably want to start it so it's best if I just choose then. :)

Mother Melania | 13 comments Hi. I tried to sign up for this a few days back but don't know whether I succeeded. I read 5 to 10 books a month and would like to sign up for the beginner's category since I've never done this before. I don't have a partner. Thanks!

Oh, and BTW, my name is "Mother Melania." I just realized that it just shows up as "Mother"

Megan, since the challenge starts in two days, I'm going to hold off finishing the review books I'm currently reading. I should have these three done on the day the challenge starts because of that. :)

Troubled Waters (Montana Rescue #4) by Susan May Warren - *Read a book with a water on the cover
Lone Witness (Atlanta Justice, #2) by Rachel Dylan - *Read a book that DOESN'T have the words "A, An, or The" in the title
Where the Fire Falls (Vintage National Parks, #2) by Karen Barnett - *Read a book with a mode of transportation (car, boat, bicycle, etc.) on the cover

Megan, do you have any biblical fiction review books? That's the one that is tough for me.


message 19: by Mother (new)

Mother Melania | 13 comments May I ask a dumb question? What is a review book?


message 20: by Melanie, ✞Moderator, Avid Reader, & Blogger ✞ (new)

Melanie (lovebeingvegan) | 9611 comments Mod
A review book is one that you got sent in the hopes that you would give your honest review of the book. The publisher or author usually sends them. You can also get review eBooks from NetGalley.


message 21: by Mother (new)

Mother Melania | 13 comments Oh, I see. That makes sense
