Robin | 249 comments 2020 Annual Challenge - Twisted Trivia

I decided on the day before New Year's Eve to start prepping for this challenge. Thought I'd give it a go...and then spent so much time answering trivia the last 2 days of 2019. Currently all answers are written down in a notebook. However since I'm about to finish a book and then will have to start another (obviously) I thought I should start getting my choices in order.

More to come for sure... (Hopefully I'll have a little time to get things in order this weekend)

A rule or two I'll definitely need reminding of:

5. Books must be at least 175 pages long.

➽ In the case of ebooks & audiobooks, use the hardcover or paperback edition to determine page length. From the book page, select “all editions”, then select the first paper edition as your guide. If reading an ebook and there is no paper edition, ask for a ruling. If reading an audiobook and there is no paper edition, your book must be a minimum of 6 hours long.

10. Compound words/Imbedded words/Plurals: When a task requires a specific word in the title, it must match the required word as close as possible unless specifically stated in the individual task. It may not be included as a compound word or imbedded in another word. That includes hyphenated words. In the situation of plurals, you may add an "s" or "es", but you may not change the word to a plural form if it's different from the required word. Eg - Mice cannot be used as the plural for Mouse. If reading a book in a language other than English, the word must be a direct translation.

Reporting:
Each time you complete a book, you must report it in an individual message in your personal tracking thread. Do not combine books in a message, or reserve messages and then go back to edit. Each book gets it own message written at the time you report it. The reason is that a new message generates a notification (and my attention). An edited message does not and I will miss it.

Report each book as follows:

1. Challenge Progress: Identify where you are in the challenge – Badge 1, book 1 (2, 3, 4, etc.)
2. List Card
3 Specify Yay or Nay, and Category
4. Link to book read. REQUIRED: If the cover is part of the task, link the cover of the edition you read as well.
5. List the number of pages of the edition you read. If an ebook or audiobook also give the number of pages of the paper edition (refer general rules on page numbers).
6. Give a very brief summary of the task.
7. State how the book fits the criteria.
8. Specifications required in the task. Some tasks require that you report a specific thing. IE – a task requires that you read a book from a Listopia. You need to identify which position number the book is on the list so that it can be verified.

Sample: Say I’ve read 5 books in the Badge 1 section:

1. Badge 1, Book 5
2. Card 1
3. Yay Task - Geography
4. Link – My Life in France
5. Listened to Audiobook, Hardcover edition is 336 pages
6. Read a book set in France.
7. The book is a memoir of Julia Child's life in France.
8. No specifications.

Requesting a badge:

When you finish a badge requirement, you will need to post in the Year Long Reporting Thread as follows:

WoF Name ________________

Badge Requesting (One, Two, Three or Four)
1. Card, Task, link to Title
2. Card, Task, link to Title
3.
4…… continuing to 12

Sample:

WoF - Janice

Badge One completed
1. Card 1, Yay Geography, My Life in France
2. Card 5, Nay Entertainment, The Vampire's Bride
3.
4….. continuing to 12.

Keep your reporting in your personal thread and in the general report thread neat and concise with no extraneous wordage. This makes it easier for me to verify.

You may use gifs in your personal thread to your heart's content, just not in the reporting messages.
