description

My family is a family of geeks, and we're pretty proud of it. Every year in March, we celebrate Pi Day by eating some pie. Now, in order to turn it into a challenge, I thought it would be entirely too long for a monthly, but why not a yearly? I present TCF's First Celebration of Pi/Pie!

Duration: January 1st, 2019 to December 31st, 2019!

Levels:
Student: 3 or less books
Baker: 4-6 books
Enthusiast: 7-9 books
Mathmatician: 10-12 books
Pastry Chef: 13-15 books
Professor: 16-18 books
Celebrity Baker: 19-20 books
Insanity: 21+ books


How Tos:
descriptionThis will be a multi part Mix and Match challenge, so pick your level, then pick your books. When completing Numerical Pi, you do not need to read in the exact order of Pi, you can mix and match around the amount of places of the decimal you wish to do, so long as you have all of the decimal places you choose filled!
🥧NO DUPLICATING BOOK OR TASK ENTRIES!! Books and Tasks are only to be used/listed/completed once! An example of this would be reading a book with a lit candelabra on the cover for the "Read a book that has a candle on the cover" task, and then reading a different book with someone holding a single lit candle on the cover, justifying it by saying that it is two different candles. Once you complete the "Read a book that has a candle on the cover" task, it can't be completed a second time to complete the category.
descriptionRe-reads are allowed, but books must be at least 25 pages in length to count for this challenge. You CAN change your Books at any time during the challenge!
🥧When using titles in the Spell Out Tasks, the words A, And, An, and The do not count.
descriptionWhen listing books for the Numerical Pi category, you must put the series name and book number in the series somewhere in your entry! Example: 4- Catching Irish (The Summerhaven Trio #4) by Katy Regnery-8/11/18
🥧Also, when listing books for the Numerical Pi category, if you get to one of the places where a zero is in Pi, the series books you read must be a prequel novella and still conform to the previous rule about listing series books! Example: 0- The Assassin and the Pirate Lord (Throne of Glass #0.1) by Sarah J. Maas-11/13/16
descriptionIn the Numerical Pi category, you CAN NOT combine 2 entries by reading 1 book! An example of this would be combining the very first 1 and 4 into 14 and reading the 14th book in a series. All books read must be numbers 0-9 in a series! (This does include all decimal numbers up to 10, to allow for novella reading, so long as the novella fits the minimum 25 pages requirement!)
🥧Keep your original post updated and give a shout out in the thread when you're all done! Please do not make a separate post with your finished challenge, edit your original comment! This is so I can keep accurate track of participation. You can make an announcement post like "Finished in comment #2!", so I know where to find your completed challenge to congratulate you! Duplicate posts will be deleted!

Some Info to Keep In Mind:
descriptionMark books as finished by adding the date finished next to the book listed and either striking them out using the "< s> < /s>" HTML commands (without the spaces) or by copying and pasting a checkmark: ✔ ✓
🥧Add a tally of completed books to your Original Post= 0/5 completed!
descriptionEach Category has a different number of tasks in it, they are not all the same number of tasks! Plan your lists accordingly!
🥧Latecomers are welcome to back date the challenge to January and use books that you've already read this year to complete the challenge!

See my post for examples and if you have questions, PLEASE ask me here, or PM me!

Tasks:
Category 1: Pi/Pie Spell Outs
Spell out the words Pi and Pie using the first letter of the Title, Series name, or Author (First or last name only!).

Category 2: Numerical Pi
So, for any circle, dividing its circumference by its diameter will give you the irrational number known as Pi, which means that its value cannot be expressed exactly as a simple fraction. As a result, pi is an infinite decimal. Your task is to read as many Series books as you can that correspond to the numbers of Pi. Go HERE for the first million digits of Pi!

The first bullet point in the How Tos addresses this, Loriidae, specifically the part in bold. It says "This will be a multi part Mix and Match challenge, so pick your level, then pick your books. When completing Numerical Pi, you do not need to read in the exact order of Pi, you can mix and match around the amount of places of the decimal you wish to do, so long as you have all of the decimal places you choose filled!

Level: Insanity: 21+ books

How Tos:
This will be a multi part Mix and Match challenge, so pick your level, then pick your books. When completing Numerical Pi, you do not need to read in the exact order of Pi, you can mix and match around the amount of places of the decimal you wish to do, so long as you have all of the decimal places you choose filled!

at least 25 pages in length

When listing books for the Numerical Pi category, if you get to one of the places where a zero is in Pi, the series books you read must be a prequel novella and still conform to the previous rule about listing series books! Example: 0- The Assassin and the Pirate Lord (Throne of Glass #0.1) by Sarah J. Maas-11/13/16

Read 36 books! DONE!

Susan A | 1593 comments Trea- I’m going to drop out. Post 18. I just noticed the minimum page requirement. That’s not a good fit for me. It’s difficult to remember page mins when doing multiple challenges. I almost always forget and start claiming books incorrectly. I’m going to look for one with no page restrictions.

Thanks for the time and effort you and the other moderators put into creating and hosting challenges.

25 pages is nothing since almost every book is that. It's when they're in the 150 or more that I get in trouble.

That's fine, Susan, I'll make a note of it on the Participants comment. Thank you for the way you deleted your comment, because it doesn't break the links for anyone else's comments below you! I'm sorry this wasn't a good fit for you!

TinEye says no, and I agree. A good example of a peach cover is James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl or Slowly falling for the school bully A pride and prejudice variation by Katie Lynn Johnson , especially since the rules didn't state it has to be a 50% cover.

Category 2: Numerical Pi
So, for any circle, dividing its circumference by its diameter will give you the irrational number known as Pi, which means that its value cannot be expressed exactly as a simple fraction. As a result, pi is an infinite decimal. Your task is to read as many Series books as you can that correspond to the numbers of Pi. Go HERE for the first million digits of Pi!
