Scavenger Hunt Challenge Update: Join the challenge!

scavenger hunt

We are officially one week into our Winter reading challenge and approximately 1/4 of the items have been revealed. Have you decided which item(s) you will be picking? Keep reading to see how you can join us and to see some of the items revealed thus far.

Our challenge started December 1 and goes through March 15. Enter to join the fun and to win cool bookish prizes! You can read the full instructions here.

You may notice a pattern to the clues in the next few weeks. There will be a mix of items of varying difficulty levels (I think that one of them will be virtually impossible but you may prove me wrong). Some items involve you finding books with certain things on the cover. Others will require you to pick authors/books that fit something personal to you (your birthday, etc). Some clues will require you dig around our blog to find things. Finally some clues may push your comfort level and ask you to perform certain tasks. And at least one item each week will come with a hidden prize that will be revealed at the end of the challenge. This particular hidden prize will usually be awarded to an item where you will be competing with others participating to get the “best” item.

Most books won’t require you purchase anything if you think creatively and use your local library (there is one exception to this rule that will require you to purchase a book). However, if you do purchase books, we hope you do so through our Amazon link: http://astore.amazon.com/therearoo020-20. Just click on the powered by Amazon logo to gain access to the whole Amazon site.

So here’s what’s been revealed so far (click the links to take you to the Wikia page which has more details about each item and to see what other participants have picked so far):

Dec 1: Read a book by an author who shares a birthday with you. No photo proof required but let us know who you pick.
Dec 2: A book that is listed at #4 on a list (goodreads, 1001, bestseller, blogger list etc.) You must provide link to your list.
Dec 3: A book by an author who has interacted with you on social media or by mail. More detailsΒ here. Photo proof required.
Dec 4: A book featuring water (sea, lake, pond, etc.) on the cover. Photo proof of cover required.
Dec 5: A book with a beautiful cover. Photo proof required. More details (that you should read) about this item Β here.
Dec 6: A book with a number in the title.
Dec 7: A book by an author from a country we have featured in one of our Around the World posts. No photo proof required.

Some people have already completed books. Which items do you plan to try to accomplish? Which is your favorite thus far?Β 

Check in daily in December to our challenge page, twitter (#rrscavengerhunt), or Wikia page to see the new item revealed. Items are posted approximately 7-8am EST. The question is, do you have what it takes? Sign up here.

    • you should try to see if any items overlap with books you’re reading for other challenges. that way you can qualify for prizes without doing any extra work πŸ™‚

    • FYI: If you did want to participate in one item, just wanted to let you know that there’s a deadline of tomorrow for step 1 of item 25. This first step is only providing a book recommendation for a book you want to convince others to read. If you go to our challenge page then just click on the link for Dec 25 it will take you to the wIKIA page and you can comment with your recommendation. I know you said no challenges but I’m trying to get people to participate in this one item (which comes with a hidden prize). Granted you’d have to read one of the other books to qualify for the prize but you’re also welcome to just provide your recommendation then not read anything. I’m nosy and I like your reading tastes so I’d like to encourage you to do step one. Of course, maybe you’ll see a book on the recommended list that you already plan to read!

      • I really have to try more of Atkinson. I liked (but didn’t love) Life after Life. But definitely enjoyed it enough to want to read more. And yay that I convinced you. I just selfishly want some good book recommendations πŸ™‚ it will be interesting to see what people decide to pick. I may base my decision on which books I currently own because I want to read all the ones I haven’t already read.
