"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: 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.

I supposed I could join, not sure how much reading i will actually get done with a new baby but it will be fnu to hang out and see what everyone is reading!!
Sending credit, will make a list later.
Jessica don't feel bad I won't get much reading done eaither. I am working Fri-Mon's 10 hours a day. By the time I get home I can't even sit on the couch without falling asleep..lol I will try to get some reading in on my days off though. I even only set my Goodreads challenge to 150 books this year when it has been 200-300 each year :(
Ok is it just me or is their no spell check on here anymore. If not I am SCREWED..lol because I can't spell worth shit
Ok while we are waiting for everyone to trickle in lets talk books. Last year I read about 225 books which was down from the year before because I got a job in Oct :(. Anyway here are some of my favirote reads for 2013. As you can tell by my list I LOVE darker books. My list for this challenge is made up of mostly books from other people's Favs of 2013 lists so tell me what your favs where last year?
