🌹Theme - Book Boyfriends🌹


Challenge Dates:
Signups open until Saturday, December 8th at 6 PM EST
Teams Allocated December 8th after signups close
First Date begins Saturday, December 15, 2018
Last Date ends on Friday, February 15, 2019

The Bachelor Team Challenge is an 9 week challenge, the first date will begin on December 15, 2018 and the last date begins February 15, 2019. This challenge is all about finding love - books must be romance to count!

Each week you will go on a themed 'date' with your books. You and your teammates can earn roses in several ways, explained below, and at the end of the challenge the team with the most roses wins!

The teams will consist of roughly 6 members. You will be reading a minimum of one book per week to complete the task for your date, there is no passing or alternate tasks. Team members may read multiple books for each date and potentially earn bonus roses. Dates will last one week, beginning on Saturday evenings and ending at Midnight on Friday. There will be one two week date during the challenge for 'Visiting the Family'. Roses will be awarded at the end of the date and the team with the most roses at the end of the challenge will be our winner!

The dates will begin on Saturdays at 6 PM EST, at that time the task for each date will be announced. Books must be completed and posted by the following Friday at Midnight EST, except when 'Visiting the Family' when you will have until the second Friday. Roses will be awarded before the next date begins. Each date we will be working towards spelling out B-A-C-H-E-L-O-R. The potential tasks for each letter will be posted in advance, but you will not know which task will be used until the date begins.

Roses are earned by:
🌹 The first rose per team is earned for reading 4 books fitting the task during the date.
Bonus roses may be earned by:
🌹 The team that finishes 4 books and posts in the Q&A/Announcement thread first wins a bonus rose. Note, posting is required to earn this rose.
🌹 Teams with each member completing the task (with a minimum of 6 books read) earn an additional rose.
🌹 Teams finishing 8+ books during the date win an additional rose.

Teams will not be eliminated even if they earn no roses, they will have a chance to catch up by earning additional roses on other dates. Players will be eliminated if they do not complete the task on two consecutive dates. Eliminated players will not be replaced. Remember, players are allowed to read multiple books for a given date in order to earn bonuses and/or to make up for teammates who do not read their book or who have been eliminated.

Books must be 90 pages and MPG (Main Page Genre) Romance. Contemporary Romance, Historical Romance, Paranormal Romance or similar is acceptable, but it must be romance. Audiobooks and rereads are ok. Books can only be read once per person during the challenge even if it fits multiple categories. The same book can be read by teammates though. Once the task for the date is announced, you may not tag a book so that it fits or edit any lists - this must be done before the date begins.

Information required when posting your completion/s:

Date Task
Book/cover link
Page numbers
How book qualified, with links or cover as necessary.
Dated Completed with Rating.
If this is your second (or more) book for the task, also include that information.

Please include only this information. A small review may be included if desired, but is not required. No other discussion allowed though.

Although you will not need to make selection posts like in the PtP, your teammates might like ideas for what to read so sharing what you're reading could be very helpful. If you have any question if your book qualifies, it would be better to find out before you read it - ask your teammates or in the Q&A/Announcement thread.

If you are interested in being a team captain, please let me know when you sign up!

The responsibilities are simple - basically helping to keep track of completions: when 4 books have been read, how many members completed a task and how many books were read for a task.

Once teams are allocated, you will need to check in and introduce yourself to your team. Your first task will be to come up with a team name that fits with the theme of Book Boyfriends.
