"This is an UNMODERATED challenge. Unmoderated means that no Games Mods are supervising this challenge, and gamers are playing at their own risk. If something should happen (no prize received), the gamers will not have the assistance of the Games Moderators or the PBS Team to resolve the problem."

The challenge will require a deposit of one credit, sent to me.  The credit deposits will be used as the prize pool for winners, so you are not guaranteed to receive your credit back.  This is a reading challenge so you are not required to mail any books. Please add as a buddy to make credit returns to the winners easier.

Thanks Courtney for letting me borrow most of  your rules!!

The Challenge:

  1. We will start reading on Friday, March 1st at 12:01 am Eastern (PBS) Time and finish reading by Sunday, March 31th at 11:59 pm Eastern (PBS) Time. 
  2. You must make a TBR list with at least 15 books on it. You can use Goodreads, PBS, Amazon as long as me and your buddy has access to it. This will be used to choose your buddy and secret buddy books and it will be your choice to read them or not. 
  3. We will be using a form to submit our books. You can submit them all at once at the end of the week or after reading each book as long as you got all your books for the week submitted before the deadline. I will post a link to the form when the game starts. Please check your submissions thoroughly before submitting to keep down on the errors. If you submitted something in error please let me know and I will fix it. 
  4. All players must check-in each week by the appropriate time. Check-in dates/times are listed below. Even if you read 0 books for the week please make a submission with your name and "blank" selected for the other options.
  5. All books read during the 30 days will accrue points. Points are covered below. Paperback and EBooks are excepted although ebooks get bonus points. Audio books, magazines, poetry, graphic novels, comics, etc, will not be allowed for this challenge. No partial books can be submitted (meaning you read 1/2 of a book).
  6. You can use Goodread, Amazon or PBS ect for page counts. For ebooks if their is a paperback version use it if not then you can use the Kindle Edition or ebook version. If you can't find a page count on any of these sites you can use the formula word count/280 to get a page count. If a book has multiple types of bindings (like hardcover and MMPB), use the MMPB version. If there isn't a MMPB version, use the trade size. If you have any question on pages feel free to PM me.

 

Here is the link to the Check-in Form and the Spreedsheet

CHECK-IN DATES (by 11:59 PM):

WEEK 1: SUNDAY, MARCH 10TH (for books read during MARCH 1 - MARCH 9)

WEEK 2: SUNDAY, MARCH 17TH (for books read during MARCH 10 - MARCH 16)

WEEK 3: SUNDAY, MARCH 24TH (for books read during MARCH 17 - MARCH 23)

Novel - 111 to 250 pages: 100 points

Super Novel - 251 to 360 pages: 150 points

Neverending Novel - 451 pages and greater: 250 points

 

Bonus Points:

Weekly Poll Book Bonus: 100 Points - Prior to each week I will take suggestions on popular books and poll them for the week. The book with the most votes will be the "Weekly Poll Book" and anyone that reads it that week will get the bonus points. 

Secret Buddy Bonus: 75 Points - I will secretly choose 2 books from your posted TBR list and give you one clue per book. If you guess and read these books you will get bonus points 

Buddy Bonus: 50 points - Before we begin, I will buddy up participants and have each pick and post 10 novella, novel, or super novel sized TBR books for their buddy to read. In addition to the regular base points, 50 bonus points will be added for each book read.

eBook Bonus: 25 points - for every ebook that is read, you will receive these bonus points. An extra incentive to get through that stash!

Review Bonus: 10 points - For every book that is reviewed, whether it's here on PBS's description page, Amazon, B&N, Goodreads, etc, you will receive 10 bonus points. These do not have to be large reviews. Why did you like the book, what did you dislike? How many stars?

Totals will be determined each week and for the final by:

Totaling up your points standing (person with the most points at the end of the week will get 1, second gets 2, etc) and adding it to your page standing (determined by totaling up number of pages read - rank again, person with most pages read will get a 1 and so on). The person with the lowest total number (both page and points added together) will be the winner. In the case of a tie for points, the ranking will be determined by the highest number of pages read. In the case of a tie for page ranking, standing will be determined by highest number of points. In the case of a total points tie, pages read will be the tie breaker. If a player has not submitting anything for the week, the will automatically get the last ranking available and tie for that spot with any other player who does not submit.

Winning Categories: You will only be allowed to win one final prize category to give everyone else more of a chance. You will also only be allowed to win one weekly prize however you can win a weekly prize and then win a final prize also.

Weekly Polls 

The rules are: I will take the top 2 of each poll. You can choose ONE of the books from EACH of the polls winners to get the bonus points for the week. For example if the winners where "Too Far" & Damaged" for New Adult and " Laid Bair" & "Tri Mates" for Erotic. You could choose to read Too Far & Tri Mates for 100 bonus points each for the week but you couldn't get bonus points for "Too Far" & Damaged". They also have to be read before check-in on the week they are chosen to be counted for bonus points. The reason I decided to take the top 2 in each is to give everyone more options on books that they might want to read. If anyone has any questions ask away!!

Week 1 - Romance & Sci-Fantasy

Romance Choices

Sci-Fi & Fantasy Choices

Week 2 - New Adult & Mystery

New Adult Choices

Mystery Choices

Week 3 - Erotic & ?

? (Anything goes)

Week 4 - PNR/UF & YA

  2. Frost Burned (Mercy Thompson, Bk 7) by Patricia Briggs

YA
