Book Challenge

Welcome! My book challenge runs from July 1, 2019 – December 31, 2019 over on GoodReads. Join anytime!

Here’s how it works:
There are 15 categories with point values. You can choose as little or as many different categories as you’d like to participate in. So you may never read books in certain categories, and you may read the majority of books in a handful of categories. There are no limitations in this regard.

The 3 people who earn the most points by December 31, 2019 will receive a prize from me. Also, the person who reads the most total books (regardless of points), and a randomly drawn member (who participates) will also win a prize. (5 different people total- if someone wins more than one category, I’ll chose the next person)

-A book can only be used for 1 category.
-Categories can be completed multiple times.
-You don’t have to complete every category.
-Only books read from July 1, 2019 – December 31, 2019 will count.
-Audio books count.
-Feel free to add books you’re reading/want to read to our group bookshelf.
