Hello people! Hopefully you've all read Adele's lovely blog post explaining how this challenge works.

In any case, here are the levels and requirements for reference!
You can find participation badges and award badges here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1K6-...

Level 1: Staycation (1-10 points)
Level 2: Beach Holiday (10-20 points)
Level 3: Tourist (20-30 points)
Level 4: Off the Beaten Track (30-40 points)
Level 5: World Citizen (40+ points)

Which level are you aiming for? I'm going to be ambitious and aim for LEVEL 5!!! Go big or go home, right?

Remember points work as follows:

+1 point for each country you read a book from (based on the NATIONALITY OF THE AUTHOR)

+1 point for each your prompt you complete (if you find one book that fits three prompts, you still get 3 points)

+3 points for each read-a-long you participate in (even if you DNF the book)

Feel free to use this space to keep track of your points throughout the year!
