Scavenger Hunt Challenge Update: Join the challenge!
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 details here. Photo proof required.
