descriptionHow it Works:
•Tegan started up the Trilogy or Bust Challenge and we are going to keep it going with a little variation:-)


descriptionChoose Your Level!: You can read 1, 2, or 3 Trilogies in the 3 Months you have to complete the challenge. (You can change your Level at any time during the challenge!)

descriptionCreate your List!: Choose the trilogies you want to read for the challenge and get your list started. Things to remember when creating your list...
○Add your Level and Start Date (Everyone will be starting at differnt times so to keep track I need to see the start date!)
○Keep an Update Tally! Example: 3/6 books Completed 1/2 Trilogies Completed
○Make sure to Update your Original List, as well as post random updates and let everyone know what you think of your books!
○Rate your books and Strike your finished books!

descriptionWhen you Finish...Start Again!: This is an on going challenge so when you finish your challenge or your 3 months are up give it another try!

descriptionBonus Options:The Bonus's can be used as one of your Trilogies or in addition to your 1, 2, or 3 Trilogies

For the Bonus I will List Trilogies each Month that have to do with the Month, Season, Ect... You will have to read the entire Trilogy for it to count as your Bonus:-) HOWEVER you will have the three months of your challenge duration to finish...not just the month I listed it in!
