Basics:
200 or less pages earns 1 point.
201-499 pages earns you 2 pts
500+ pages earns you 3
*Re-reads only earn 1/2 points from usual. ***Must be at least 8-12 months since you last read it
All books are included as long as it's part of a series that you have not fully completed.
*All points are earned upon completion of the book. Does not matter when you started it.


Series points
Finished a series? Woohoo! Give yourself an extra 5 points!
*10 points if the series has over 15 books to it.

**You can only claim this once so if a sequel is expected (untitled, mentioned on the author page, etc) you cannot take it. If a series is discontinued or is has been 2+ years since word of a sequel has been said you can claim this (Such as Nana by Ai Yazawa or Scrap by Emory Sharplin)



No book dumping at the last minute! Books should be posted here within 2 weeks of finishing reading them! You will have 3 days after the month has ended to make sure all are posted and accounted for (good and bad).

Please make a comment whenever your finish a book.

...Please include the following information as it applies to your book:
Book: Title or cover link
Pages: ?
Happy New Year Bonus ? Specify the letter you are using.
Reread?
Did you finish the series?


***If you actively use the group to track and share your series using the Series, on hold, completed, dnf threads then be sure to let us know and you will receive an extra 10 points in the last week of the month***

BONUS OPPORTUNITIES:
In addition to all series books counting for the above points you can earn up to 2 extra points.

+ Read a book where the title/series/author can spell out LEAP. You can use all 3 parts to do so. (LEAP must be spelled using only 1 book so you can use ANY of those 4 letters within the title/series/author to do so. Example if I read JEoPardy in January (CaLendar Mysteries #1) by CAmilly Cafer, I could use the bolded letters.
+ Read a book originally published in a leap year (2020, 2016, 2012, 2008, 2004, 2000, 1996...)

1 additional point per criteria met.

I'm so sorry to hear this, Wolf. I hope you take the time and space you need to grieve, and that the love of your family and friends buoys you in this difficult time.
