Winter Reading Challenge: Reader’s Room Scavenger Hunt
It’s time to announce our upcoming challenge: The Reader’s Room Scavenger Hunt! The challenge will start December 1 and end March 15, 2016. Detailed instructions will be posted on our challenge page (in the pull down challenge menu tab under “winter challenge”). Keep reading to find out more about the upcoming challenge.
Our winter reading challenge is a literary scavenger hunt! In the month of December we will be revealing daily scavenger hunt items. We’ll also post the items on twitter each day (so follow us there if you don’t already). It’s up to you to decide which items and tasks you want to complete. You can choose to read as few or as many books as you wish. There is no minimum or maximum.
Some clues will require you to take a picture of your book or a picture of you at a specific location. We have created a Wikia page where you can post all these items. Some clues will require that you dig around our blog to find the answers. Other items will require that you think creatively and do some research.
For each clue, you must find the appropriate book for the item, read it, review it, and post any required photo evidence. The blog format unfortunately doesn’t allow you to comment with photos so we have created several options for posting your evidence. The easiest way is to simply post your review and photo evidence on our Wikia page. To do so, just go to the main page and you’ll see a list of December dates in the main page post. When an item is available, we’ll post a hyperlink next to the date. Just click the hyperlink and it will take you to the page for that specific item where you can post your photo evidence. Alternatively, you can post your photos on twitter with hashtag #rrscavengerhunt or on our Facebook page.
Participating Bloggers: You can post your reviews with photo evidence on your own blogs and then link back to those posts so others can check them out. Just make sure your mention our challenge when posting.
There will be a prize for the person who reads the most and a prize for one randomly selected winner from among all participants. We will also have some random prizes for a few specific clues — for people we think picked the best book for that clue. So choose your items wisely because we won’t reveal which clues until the end of the challenge.
So what do you say? Are you in or out? Sign up here and check out the detailed instructions on our challenge page.
Ask your questions here before the challenge starts so you are ready. It’s a more involved challenge than ones we’ve done in the past so make sure you check out the Wikia page, Twitter account, and/or Facebook page so you can decide how you want to post your photo evidence.
Sign up early and check out our Wikia page to get a head start on the competition since our Dec 1 item is up already.
