(Your ss was made for your convenience and teamwork. If you choose not to use it or prefer to make your own, that is your teams choice. This spreadsheet will not be updated by a mod it is strictly for team member use only. Please let Felicia know if you have any questions, but this should be self explanatory.)

For this challenge, we will be picking one overall winner to pick a book from the prize lists (chosen at random for fairness)! 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 Pageopoly challenge, this Disney challenge, and our Vacation Quarterly together to pick that winner.

I have edited all team spreadsheets to have the new members (if you have had someone new added) in there. If and when new members are added to a team they can go into their teams SS and use the instructions to add their name to their teams SS. :D

Yes! Thanks for making the thread too - I’m excited to start the series and looking at the requirements it should be super easy to find categories for each book to fit 😁😁

@Felicia
Our spreadsheet doesn’t seem to have our 3 chosen characters highlighted in a different color anymore (unless maybe it’s just being weird on my phone...?)

Alaina (ameserole) | 63648 comments Mod
HELLO EVERYONE! We, the mods, wanted to let you know some things for this upcoming challenge “point-wise”. So, for graphic novels they will ONLY count for 1/4 page points. Doesn’t matter what character you are on, they will just be page points. Screenplays or verses will count for 1/2 the page points. Then we wanted to be nice and creative because we think if you can find a retelling that fits the character that you are reading for - well, you get an extra point! If you have any questions about the upcoming challenge please go to our Q&A thread and a mod will answer your question in a timely manner 😊

Hi Team Lion King!

We have had a few people drop out of the challenge and others to join requesting specific teams; this has caused the teams to be quite unbalanced. So unfortunately I am moving Cinthia from this team to Team Beauty and the Beast.

And replacing her will be Haven. Please welcome her with open arms! :D

And thanks for being so patient with us mods. <3

Hi Team Lion King! The time has come to announce the characters! Your team's characters are:

Aladdin
Mulan
Merida

Please remember you must start your books after midnight GR time for it to count for a category.

Happy planning! :D


message 40: by si ( ◠‿◠ ) (new)

si ( ◠‿◠ ) (buriedunderbooks) | 555 comments YAY! These categories are so fun. Can we all read whatever categories we want? like is it okay if two people read the same category? Or should we try to strategize based on what books we all have and try to cover as many categories as we can?

Each character has eight categories. You and your team have to work together to get 4 of the categories for your characters done. Once you get four categories read, reviewed, and then put on the review thread, you will get another character. If you get the same character again you read the other four categories you didn't read the first time around.

You cannot repeat categories until you get a character for a third time.

Does that make sense?

Kemi Hey guys, I just received These Rebel Waves (Stream Raiders, #1) by Sara Raasch and I thought it could be for the 3+ colours in the Aladdin category. Is that alright?? Also for the travelling one, I would like to read A Court of Frost and Starlight (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #3.1) by Sarah J. Maas . I am planning to read them but lemme know whether to post it on the reviews! :)
