Team Purple Hat
Please post the reviews like this.

The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss
Review: Link
Pages: Link
Buddy Read: Link
IF APPLICABLE, let mods know that your book is a part of the series for the space that your team has landed on.

For this two month challenge, as well as our September one, we will be picking one overall winner (again!). At the end of our Vacation Quarterly Challenge there will be one winner that wins a prize of getting to choose a book from bookdepository.com. They can pick any book up to $10. For this to happen, we will be combining the points from the two month challenge (July-August), our September challenge, and our Vacation Quarterly together to pick that winner.

General Rules
*Books must be read and reviewed from July 1st to August 31st.
*Books must be 100 pages to count (using the most rated edition on GR)
**Books read that are under 100 pages will count toward page points, but not category points.
**Books that are DNFed can count toward pages, but not category points. A review and/or status updates is still required.
*Manga and graphic novels can be read and will count for ¼ of the listed page count. They will count toward pages only.
*Five detailed status updates can be used in place of review.
*Buddy reads must take place within this group to count for bonus points
*You must make a minimum of four comments on a buddy read to earn points.

Points
*Page Points:
100 - 149 pages = 1 point
150 - 249 pages = 2 points
250 - 349 pages = 3 points
350 - 449 pages = 4 points
450 - 549 pages = 5 points
550 + pages = 6 points
*Buddy read points will double the page count.
*Reading and participating in the group book of the month will triple the page count.
*One point for every book read that fits the book or series of that space. For example, if you read a book from the Six of Crows duology on that specific space you will get an extra point once it has been completed.
*Five points for passing GO.
*Points can be awarded/taken away for landing on Volunteer for Tribute spaces. See below.

Challenge Rules
All members will be split into teams of 5 (depending on number of members signed up). At the start of the challenge, one of the mods will “roll” the dice for your team (using random.org). The space your team lands on will be based off of a series and there will be a specific number of pages that need to be ‘paid’ in order for your team to move on from that space. The number of pages that is due is at the bottom of the space on the Pageopoly board above.

Teams will continuously read books to bank pages read. And pages for books completed, reviewed, and added to the teams review thread will take away from the amount of pages that are due to move your team off of that space.

For example:

Team 1 has four members. They landed on the Legend space. This space requires 2,400 pages to be paid in order to advance.

Member 1 reads Throne of Glass which has 404 pages.
Member 2 reads Vampire Academy which has 332 pages.
Member 3 reads Eye of Minds which has 308 pages.
Member 4 reads Heartless which is 453 pages.

404 +
332 +
308 +
453 =
1497

Because this team turned in 1,497 pages in a space that requires 2,400 the team still owes 903 pages.

Had this team landed on the Six of Crows space which only requires 1,000 pages to advance they would have ‘banked’ 497 pages for the next space they land on.

Susan (jazzescrapper) | 478 comments I finished a book tonight but started it when I went to bed on June 30th. Can I still count it since most of it was read in July or do I only get to count the pages read in July? Some challenges say so long as I finished in July then it's okay but I have one challenge that only allows the pages read in that month. I will post the book when I know. Thank you

(I am also posting this in the chat thread too just to cover bases )
