- Find the words within any of the pages, or inside cover, or title, but you must read the book to claim a word from it.
- Set your own goal - choose as many or as few words as your goal for the month, you do not have to aim for all of them. This is YOUR challenge, make it work for you so that it's doable and fun!

With scavenger hunts, you look for the word in any of the books you read during the month. The word is in BOLD CAPS above. I added extra reference for how the word relates to Banned Books, sorry if that's confusing, just my nerdiness coming out :)

I added some extra guideline info, hope that helps?

Scavenger words was a requested activity from members, so hoping this will be fun!

Jazzy Lemon (jazzylemon) | 494 comments How are we to know if the words are found?
Shouldn't everyone add the quotes as well?
(Page numbers differ from book to book).
Or are the words to be found in the titles?

Next to DANGER, QUIET, & BURN you have books without DANGER, QUIET, or BURN in the titles.

Also some of the words aren't exactly like the ones listed

BIRD - Mockingbird?
RUN - Runner?
VIEW - Viewpoint?

Also are the words to come from titles of banned books?

I don't really understand this at all. It's terribly vague.

There are books listed but no authors, no links, and no place to get just the words.

A lot of those words could be found in a single book, so just quotes from the first couple of books we read? What do we do and what is the challenge, exactly?

I like a hard set rules to can follow, and to be able to show how we came to the conclusions.

Sorry about that Jazzy....

Here's an example that may help.
You are looking for the word 'BIRD'.
- You might choose to read 'To Kill a Mockingbird' and claim the word from the title.
- You might choose to read 'Dear Mrs. Bird' and claim the word from the title.
- You might choose to read 'H is for Hawk' and claim the word from within its pages wherever the author writes the word bird.

In your tracking you would put:
25. Bird - H is for Hawk - page 345

You don't have to read any specifically banned books for this, I was just giving a reference as an example. And you can find more than one of the words from the same book. So, you might find the words, Burn, Danger, Run, Fear, Burn, Day all in a book like Fire on the Mountain: The True Story of the South Canyon Fire (just as an example), and you'd then record:

12. DANGER - Fire on the Mountain: The True Story of the South Canyon Fire page 135
14. RUN - Fire on the Mountain: The True Story of the South Canyon Fire page 400
15. FEAR - Fire on the Mountain: The True Story of the South Canyon Fire page 82
16. BURN - Fire on the Mountain: The True Story of the South Canyon Fire page 260
19. DAY - Fire on the Mountain: The True Story of the South Canyon Fire page 167


Does this help?

Jazzy Lemon (jazzylemon) | 494 comments thanks for all that, but page numbers are different in different books though. Surely we should just post the quotes? It would be a whole lot more fun for everyone! :)

Book, author, page number and quote?

I'd really be interested in the sentences everyone found to use the words, but the page numbers won't help me if I don't have the books.

Thank you I'm looking for banned books that I haven't read recently!

PS I will read Animal Farm by George Orwell, I know almost all those words are in it, so should probably have to find only one other book.

1/September - 30 September
Words: 0/25

1. REASON Ubik - Philip K. Dick at page 192
There's no reason for all this reversion machinery, this sinking us into a retrograde time momentum back here to 1939.
2. SIDES - Talvesepp - Terry Pratchett at 75.1%
"Read a book to the very end to save your big wee hag?"
"Oh, aye." Rob stopped. He looked cornered. He licked his lips. "How many o' them pagey things would that be?" he said hoarsely.
"Hundreds," said Granny.
"Wi' wurds on both sides?"
"Yes, indeed. In quite small writing!"

3. DIARY - Talvesepp - Terry Pratchett - at 16.4%
'We ne'er tell a soul what's in your diary, after all,' said Daft Wullie. 'Not e'en the bits wi' the flowers ye draw aroound them.'

It meant thinking that right and wrong were negotiable.
5. FREE Talvesepp - Terry Pratchett at 31.2%
Witches are very keen on pickles, as a rule, but the food they like best is free food.
6. THINK Talvesepp - Terry Pratchett at 27.1%
Some people think that 'coven' is a word for a group of witches, and it's true that's what the dictionary says. But the real word for a group of witches is 'an argument'.
7. PARK
8. OPINION Talvesepp - Terry Pratchett at 92.8%
"Whoever writted that book didnae stretch himself, in ma opinion."
9. POWER Ubik - Philip K. Dick at page 185
Going by the hardness of the surface against which he rested, he crept snail-like from step to step, feeling a kind of skill develop in him, an ability to tell exactly how to exert himself, how to use his nearly bankrupt power.
10.SPEAK Alkeemik - Paulo Coelho at 66.6%
During the third year, the omens will continue to speak of your treasure and your Personal Legend.
11. KNOWLEDGE Alkeemik - Paulo Coelho at 36.9%
Who knows, maybe they had failed to discover the secret of the Master Work - the Philosopher's Stone - and for this reason kept their knowledge to themselves.
12. DANGER Ubik - Philip K. Dick at page 169
You are in much greater danger than I thought.
13. WORLD Talvesepp - Terry Pratchett at 10.7%
The dancers froze, but the world spun.
14. RUN Alkeemik - Paulo Coelho at 74.2%
"Does that mean that Ill never run into danger?"
15. FEAR Talvesepp - Terry Pratchett at 75.1%
"The first thing a hero must conquer is his fear, and when it comes to fightin', the Nac Mac Feegles don't know the meanin' of the word."
16. BURN Daughter of the Pirate King - Tricia Levenseller at 48.7%
I don't care. I burn a spot on my tongue as I take a few gulps of the soup.
17. OPEN Ubik - Philip K. Dick at page 181
I think it's one of those old open iron cages. Do they scare you?
18. BETTER Ubik - Philip K. Dick at page 189
Feel better? It should work on you right away;
19. DAYTalvesepp - Terry Pratchett at 69.7%
There weren't enough hours in the day and the night put together.
20. QUIET Talvesepp - Terry Pratchett at 91.8%
It wasn't like this last autumn, she thought. It was dark and quiet and solemn and hidden, everything that this isn't.
21. HATE Alkeemik - Paulo Coelho at 25.1%
I'm going to hate those who have found their treasure because I never found mine
22. JAZZ
23. CHOOSE Talvesepp - Terry Pratchett at 88.5%
Where this takes me, there I choose to go, she told herself, letting the warmth pour into her.
24. VIEW Alkeemik - Paulo Coelho at 57.4%
It hid the moon from view.
25. BIRD Talvesepp - Terry Pratchett at 84.1%
When it flashed again, it looked like a bird, a tall bird like a heron.

Chloe Reads Books (chloee_matthews) So I've just finished my first book of September - Out of the Depths. I found these words in it:
DIARY - page 87, "And by the time I closed my diary, I felt so much better."

THINK - page 2, "And I began to think... what if she hadn't died at all?"
RUN - page 8, "had been run by a religious order of monks."
FEAR - page 185, "With fear. No, more than fear."
OPEN - page 28, "what they call an open and shut case."
BETTER - page 87, "And by the time I closed my diary, I felt so much better."
DAY - page 64, "And so one dark February day followed another."

I'd say one per book really. And see how many we can find. OR that we have to find them in the titles.

message 27: by Chloe (new)

Chloe Reads Books (chloee_matthews) So I've just finished Sleeping Giants and I managed to find another 8 words from it. These were:
REASON - page 194, "I sent you there for the same reason."
SIDES - page 166, "Both sides know the other doesn't want a fight."
PARK - page 260, "Location: La Fontaine Park, Montreal, Canada."
POWER - page 98, "It might also have the power to kill millions."
SPEAK - page 201, "she looks like she's about to speak."
WORLD - page 65, "I'd get bored to death unless someone started World War III."
HATE - page 270, "They do not know you well enough to hate you."
BIRD - page 29, "He thought that was quite a coincidence we ended up on the same bird."

So that's only 8 words left, one of which I've found in my Driving Theory book but I haven't finished that yet!

I still think 25 words with ONE word per book would be good. No one would expect to get them all unless they read voraciously and we could see how many of them we could find

And if we all have a post which we edit so people can see our progress instead of making new posts that would be best

It would have probably been a good idea to say ONE word per book, and let the scavenger words go on for the 3 months of the season, with perhaps a point per word for the spreadsheet.

Also i think we should have a minimum page number set for our books, like 125 or something.

It's nice to see tracking all in one post, if feasible, but it's also equally nice to get ongoing update messages of how it's going for you!

Chloe Reads Books (chloee_matthews) So I finally finished this challenge on the last day of the month! This is where I found the final words:
OPINION - Grey, E.L James, page 281, "May I humbly suggest you seek a second opinion?"

I actually gave Milk and Honey 1 out of 5 stars, I don't think poetry is for me! I'm taking part in a read-a-thon in October and one of the challenges is to read poetry so I've picked up a children's poetry book in the hope I'll enjoy it more!!
