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! :)

Kimberly (ksnapier) | 687 comments Thanks.
Bess, since I have found books for each category, you can decide which one you want to read first and I will choose from the remaining each time. Does that sound ok?

I'm finishing my religion 101 class. It ends a week from today. If you want to get started, that's fine. After a precursory look at the list, I'm not sure I have anything under the suspense category. But that's the only one that jumps out at me. I haven't delved into the list very well though. :)


message 10: by Bess (new)

Bess | 2583 comments Okay, my current book falls into several categories but I know we can only use it for one.
It is over 400 pages.
It is fantasy.
It is mostly green.
It has a single woman on the cover.
It was published in the spring.
It is part of a series with more than 4+ books.
Not originally published in 2018.
It is set outside the USA...a completely different world too.

So, you can pick where you want to stick this one. I don't mind if you organize the books if you would like, Kimberly.
:D
