Johnni Quest (johnniquest) | 1226 comments Welcome to our Winter seasonal read-a-thon. This read-a-thon runs from December 21/2019 to March 19/2020.

For every book that you read with a title starting with one of the letters in the bonus word give yourself 1 point, if any section (first, middle, last) of the author's name starts with a letter in the bonus word give yourself 2 points. The most you can have for any one book is 3 bonus points, 1 for title and 2 for author.

For example (if WINTER were our bonus word):

Nothing Lasts Forever by Sidney Sheldon = 1 point for title
OR
Fire in the Blood by Dale Ibitz = 2 bonus points for author last name
OR
Winter Swans by Danica Winters = 1 point for title, 2 points for author = 3 bonus points

Be sure to tally your pages and bonus points separately. The top 3 people with the most bonus points at the end of the challenge will get to choose a bonus word for the next quarter. NOTE: Bonus point winners cannot win in two read-a-thon's in a row, to give more people the chance to choose bonus words.

To sign up simply start yourself a post to track what you've read during the read-a-thon. Edit your post throughout the read-a-thon to let everyone know which books you've read & your total number of pages.

Here is a a template for your post:

Hi Ebb, Unfortunately the Winter-Seasonal-Read-a-thon threads for 2020 and 2021 are listed one right after the other, and in fact the 2020 one (this one) is at the top of the list, right before the 2021 , yes easy to confuse. Please add this post to the 2021 thread (mainly for selfish reasons, because I like the word you chose). Sorry for the confusion.

Sorry about that!! I hadn't even noticed. I'll post it now to the other thread. Thanks!
