To earn points in this challenge, simply read and review as normal, but if you would like to earn your team some bonus points, then the idea behind this challenge is to read multiple books by the same author.

Each time you post a review on your team review thread, we will keep a tally of how many books have been read by that author, and once your team has read 5 or more, you will receive bonus points (at a rate of 10 bonus points per book).

IMPORTANT:
* You may only claim one author per book, even if your book has multiple authors.
* Bonus points will be awarded to the team rather than to individuals, to make things simpler for scoring, and so that bonus points are given fairly.
* Bonus points will not be earned until as a team you have read 5 or more books per author.
* Tallys are kept as a team, so if 3 people on the same team read the same book, that will count as 3 books read by the 1 author.
* There is no limit as to how many authors your team is allowed to read books by.
* You may also choose to stalk a narrator, translator, editor, just make it clear which person you are using when you post your review.
* There is no penalty for reading books by different authors, you just won't earn bonus points.
* * You may read any kind of book for this challenge, but the page counts necessary to claim 1 book read by an author are the following -
- YA, NA, Adult, Non-fiction books (without illustrations) - 200 pages.
- Middle-grade/children's books (without illustrations) - 300 pages.
- Manga, graphic novels, plays, poetry, books written in verse, anything with some illustrations - 600 pages.
- Books which are mainly illustrations cannot be used.
* You may add together page counts to reach these minimums, but you can only add together page counts of books which are under the limits, ie: less than 200, 300, and 600 pages respectively. You cannot add together page counts of books which meet the minimum page count on their own.
* If you do choose to add together the page counts of multiple books to reach the minimum page count, you may only choose one author, you wouldn't be able to claim more than one author. So if you read one book with 119 pages, and a second with 113 pages, each with a different author, you could add these together to get to the minimum page count, and then choose one author to be your bonus letter.
* Books started before February can be used for page points +/- buddy read points, but you will not be able to claim any bonus points.

Any other questions? Here is a link to the rules. :)

I'm unsure about my 752 page count... apparently it's in braille. So if that doesn't count, I found a 725 page edition.
