Christina Rochester (christinarochester) Here's the September WCRTM challenge. As usual the aim is to see who can read the most books over the course of the month.
All books must be started and finished in the month of September.
The points system will work as follows:
150-249 pages - 1 point
250-349 pages - 2 points
350-449 pages - 3 points
450+ pages - 4 points
All pages are done based off the Goodreads Paperback pages.

Bonus points can also be earned.
2 points for including a link to your review (at least two paragraphs long)
1 point if the book is a standalone
1 point per book in series (if the entire series is read in September).
1 point per story in book if the book is an anthology of short stories.

Challengers:
*Christina - 25 points
*Regan - 123 points
*Slytherpuff
* Amy Leigh
*Tiffany - 86 points

Christina Rochester (christinarochester) If you have a look on the August WCRTM thread; you’ll get a good idea of how it works. People post books as and when they’ve read them

Christina Rochester (christinarochester) Regan can you just drop a new comment saying you’ve updated your post each time you edit it please? Otherwise I don’t get notification of this x


message 10: by Regan (new)

Regan Can do... updated :)

Do you prefer one comment per book?


message 11: by Christina (new)

Christina Rochester (christinarochester) It doesn’t have to be one comment per book.

I lost all my books in one comment, and then just a pop a new comment saying I’ve updated my post each time.

It’s just cos goodreads only sends out a notification for each new comment. Cos of that some members prefer to post a new comment for each individual book
