Welcome

This is my first team reading challenge so I hope this goes well

How-To
Most people know how to play the game scavenger hunt.But if you don't here is a how-to.There is going to be 8 teams with 5 players on each team. I'm going to get each team a list of items and for each item the teams has to read a book to match the items.

EX one one of the item could be a vampire. So each player has to read a book that has a vampire on the cover,in the title, or the main character is a vampire.
EX two another item could be find a book with a red cover so each player has to read a book with a red cover
EX three Or the item could be a setting like find a book that takes place in a boarding school.So each player has to find a book that takes place in a boarding school
EX four and then a item could be a genre. One could be find a UF book. So each player has to read a UF book.

EX One
Cover- Vampire Mine (Love at Stake, #10) by Kerrelyn Sparks
Title-Vampire Mine
Character-Vampire Mine Connor

EX Two
Blood Bound (Mercedes Thompson, #2) by Patricia Briggs

EX Three
Blood Promise (Vampire Academy, #4) by Richelle Mead

EX Four
Kitty and the Midnight Hour (Kitty Norville, #1) by Carrie Vaughn

I will Post the item the teams once a week on every Sunday(Texas time).

Posting
Each team is going to have their own thread and that is were the players are going to post what books they will be reading and have read for the challenge. It is also were they can chat about whatever.Each team will need a name and team leader.

Books
For the book to count each player has to post what book they will be reading for the item and after they are finish with the book. They will have to post a rating and review. With the review it can be as short as you like or as long as you like.

Rules
1.Rereads are fine but really reread them
2.Ebooks and audio are fine
3.Don't forget to post the book that you will be reading for the item
5.Don't forget to post a rating and review for the books that you are finish with
6.Just have fun

Only 40 people will be in this round but if you want to be a back up player you can. Just in case someone can't play we will have back ups.Once everyone has sign up i'm going to PM everyone and when I do just yes for still going to play or no cause you changed you mind.I'm going to wait to start the challenge until after the first of the year. So most of the holidays are over.

FAQ
I made a thread for FAQ so just head over there to ask the questions

To Win
To Win each player has to read all ten items and for the book to count they have to rate and review. If you don't it wont count for that item.

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) How long does this last? About how many books does this involve?

I hope it doesn't go longer then 4 months. But this is just a test round for the team challenge. The list of items is long but i'm going to do 10 items. The reason the items list long so there is more to pick from. Did that help Lisa Kay?

Lizz (Beer, Books and Boos) | 3560 comments Mod
I'm going to post the item you have to read each Sunday morning my time (Texas). So there will be at lest three books each month until we get to 10. This round is just a test to see what works and doesn't.Cause we know some people are faster readers then other.


message 11: by Lisa Kay (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) I'm in. When do we start?


Cindy (eclecticfirefly) (eclecticfirefly) I'll be a test subject!

Lisa Kay - I believe Lizz said not until January.

Ok do you guys want to try it out with just 2 teams this round to see how everything goes? To see what works and doesn't?

Dawn (Kat N Hat) (katnhat) If we don't get more interest before, I say we give it a try with only two.
