May is coming, school is out and the heat is here. It's the perfect weather to go to beaches, relaxing, and drinking your favorite quenchers. We are so excited for this coming month as this is our second big game! For all of you who don't know, as this is our big game: you can do this in teams! Just like what we did in Fright Night. This is also the first time we are going to be doing the event for 3 months!! Please read the rules carefully :)
description

Members will be split up into 2-4 separate teams (depends on participants and unless you pick solo) before the start date (May 1st). You will work together to complete a series of tasks together and complete as many or a little of them as you wish. However, before repeating them try to at least attempt the others.

The rules are as follows:
-Books must be read and reviewed from May 1st to July 31st.
-Audiobooks count as long as they are over 100 pages, along with any book in general.
-Graphic/manga novels count but will only count for half of the listed page count
-Buddy reads are worth double points
-You must at least post at least 3 status updates OR a review. It doesn't have to be super detailed but try to not just say "this was good."

How to Earn Points:
+1 point for every book that has been read and reviewed that correlates with a category
+2 points for participating in a buddy read (must take place in the group)
+3 for one completed category
+4 points for reading/participating in a group read (must take place in the group)
+5 points for every 1,000 pages read

IMPORTANT NOTICE: we are going to be needing this Completion Post from every participant for every book they finish to serve as an official announcement. Here is the template:

Title:
Author:
Start Date:
Finish Date:
Category and task:
Graphic Novel? (Yes or no)
Buddy Read? (Yes or no)
Group Read? (Yes or no)
Pages:
Review: [link of your review]

This will be posted again in your respective team and solo threads once sign-ups are finished and teams have been created. You can always have your own "masterpost" and update your group with your reading but this will be needed for the mods to track points better.

Does three updates mean how you're enjoying the book three sperate times, at different points throughout the book?

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The main goal is to earn as many points as possible, collectively, with the rest of your group by reading a book that fits one of the categories [you can repeat prompts/categories as many times as you like (you will still get points) but you get extra points if you (solo) or your group completes a whole category].

So, I hope you have your books ready for reading because only books that you began and finished during May 1st-July 31st will be considered.


message 41: by lyss (new)

lyss (poisnivys) wait. so, even if you finish a prompt (-read this this this..), you won’t get a point bc you have to complete a WHOLE category before getting a point?


message 42: by — nova (new)

— nova (belaslugosi) | 89 comments i thought any books until july 31st counted?

no, you still get a point even if you use the same prompt 10 times, if you like :)

you just get extra points if you complete a whole category, sorry for the confusion
