Kathy Broyles | 519 comments Welcome to our Summer seasonal read-a-thon. This read-a-thon runs from June 21, 2020 - September 21, 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 template for your post:

Diana S | 77 comments Have 2 questions.

1. Do we excludes The, A, An at the beginning of the titles or do they count?

2. Do we use the same bonus word the entire challenge or can we change bonus words at different months?
ex.. use the second bonus word starting July 1 and maybe use the 3rd bonus word August 1 etc... or maybe returning to the 1st bonus word on September 1
