The Book Seekers' Reading Challenge 2021
 

:bookstack: The Book Seekers' Reading Challenge 2021 :bookstack:

Welcome to The Book Seekers' second annual reading challenge!

This year's theme is... Hogwarts Houses! There are 12 prompts, which are all inspired by traits associated with the different Houses. A bonus prompt or two might be added later in the year. :shifty:

As was the case last year, there will be accolades awarded to members based on how many of the prompts they manage to complete as well as an accolade awarded to members of the winning team. There will be four teams this year and, yep, you guessed it, they are: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. We will be putting everyone into teams randomly so keep an eye on your post’s title to see which team you're a part of.

Without further ado, here are the guidelines, additional information, and the prompts!


WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
  • Post in THIS thread: “I solemnly swear that I am up for this challenge! :read:”
  • That same post will become your reading log for the challenge.
  • Record which prompts you have completed and the books (title and author) you read for them by editing them into your post.
  • If you add a book to your log, please make sure it's clear whether the prompt is COMPLETED or IN PROGRESS.
  • Have fun!
GUIDELINES & OTHER INFORMATION:
  • You MUST read a different book for each prompt. We encourage you to read books that you haven’t read before, but this isn’t a rule.
  • You can sign up for the challenge at any point during the year. Any books that you have read during 2021 can count towards this challenge.
  • This is NOT a discussion thread. The Book Nook is, though, and these are some of the things we encourage you to post about in there:
    • Discussion relating to TBS Reading Challenge
    • Sharing and asking for book recommendations for the prompts

THE PROMPTS
Quote:

  • Show your BRAVERY by reading a book that is in a format or genre outside of your comfort zone.

    • This can be done in multiple ways: spinning around and touching a book on your bookshelves, writing a list and pointing at it, using a random number generator, etc.
  • Show your DETERMINATION by reading a book that you’ve been putting off.
    • This could be a book that you’ve started and haven’t finished or a book that has been on your to-read list for a LONG time.
  • Prove your LOYALTY by rereading an old favourite OR reading the next book in a series.
  • Celebrate HARD-WORKING authors and read a book that took the author 10 or more years to write.

  • Celebrate CREATIVITY by reading a book that has a cover you really like.
  • Be AMBITIOUS and read a book that’s 450 pages or longer.
    • Audiobook alternative: Use Goodreads to look up the pages that the regular paperback would be. If it's 450 pages or more, it counts.
  • As per our very new TRADITION, read a book recommended by another member of SnitchSeeker.

Show your DETERMINATION by reading a book that you’ve been putting off.
This could be a book that you’ve started and haven’t finished or a book that has been on your to-read list for a LONG time.
