"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.

Buddy Bonus: 75 points - Before we begin, I will buddy up participants and have each pick and post 7 novella, novel, or super novel sized TBR books for their buddy to read. In addition to the regular base points, 75 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!
End of Challenge Bonuses:
Secret Buddy Bonus: 300 Points - Anyone that finishes all their secret buddy bonus books will get this bonus.
Buddy Bonus: 525 Points - Anyone that finishes all their buddy bonus books will get this bonus.
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 Winners - ties will be broke with page counts
I love book recommendations and ideas so we will be discussing books a plenty in this challenge. Please feel free to chat away!!

This is my first one of these, so I may need some help with the directions. The reading part I can handle
Question: am I limited to reading the books on my Challenge list or are those some for the mystery books to be picked from?
Nancy your list is also private so I sent you a friend invite. Don't foget those with their settings private will have to send a friend request to your buddy when I pick them that way they can also see your lists. If anyone has any questions please feel free to ask.
