So here's the thing. I've seen these sort of reading challenges around before, but I've never done one. I'm talking about challenges where different categories are assigned "points" and you need to read books that fit the category and then add up to 200 points or something in total. I'm saying 200 points here, because that is, in fact, the rule for this challenge: The Semi-Charmed Winter 2015 Book Challenge. This challenge already started, but thankfully I track my books well on Goodreads, so I know what I've read so far this month. I have no clue how I'll do with this challenge (I doubt I'll complete 200 points), but I'm going to give it a shot. The categories look tough, but I'll see what I can do to figure them out. I'll track my progress on the Challenges page, as per the usual.
The categories & points are:
5 points: Read a book that has between 100 and 200 pages.
10 points: Read a debut book by any author. (The book does not have to be a 2015 debut.)
10 points: Read a book that does not take place in your current country of residence.
10 points: Read a book that someone else has already used for the challenge.
15 points: Read a book published under a pseudonym
15 points: Read a book with “boy,” “girl,” “man” or “woman” in the title (or the plural of these words).
15 points: Read a book with a one-word title
20 points: Read a book with a person's first and last name in the title
20 points: Read a food-themed book. — Submitted by SCSBC15 finisher Jamie @ Whatever I Think Of!
20 points: Read a book with a verb in the title.
30 points: Read two books with the same title (by different authors).
30 points: Read a nonfiction book and a fiction book about the same subject
This challenge runs from November 1, 2015 - January 31, 2016. For more information, or to join in as well - click HERE.
