Damini
I found this AMAZING challenge in NBRC Group! Take a look at how it works.



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:



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

That's it. Sign up now and start finding your way through the maze.

Once again, all credit and courtesy to the NBRC moderators for coming up with the idea of this creative challenge.

I'm in! I joined this in NBRC too but used a different way of getting in and out of the maze. Is that okay?
