Semi-Charmed Summer 2016 Reading Challenge


This challenge began on June 1st, but I’m jumping in a little late!  I’ve never participated in one of the Semi-Charmed reading challenges before so I’m excited to see what it’s like! Feel free to join with me 🙂

General rules:

  • The challenge will run from June 1, 2016, to August 31, 2016. No books that are started before 12 a.m. on June 1 or finished after 11:59 p.m. on August 31 will count.
  • Each book must be at least 150 pages long. Audiobooks and large-print books are fine, as long as the regular print version meets the length requirement.
  • A book can only be used for one category and each category can only be completed once.
  • The highest possible total is 200 points and the first five people who finish the challenge will be invited to contribute a category for the winter 2016 challenge.

The list:

  • Freebie! Read any book at least 150 pages long. 5 points.
  • Read a collection of short stories or essays. 10 points.
  • Read an adult fiction book written by an author who normally writes books for children. 10 points. 
  • Read a book set in Appalachia. 15 points.
  • Read a book with a cover that you personally find unappealing. 15 points. 
  • Read a book that you have previously only seen the film (movie) of. 20 points. 
  • Read a book with a punny title. 25 points. 
  • Read a microhistory. 30 points. 
  • Read one book with a good word in the title and one with a bad word. 30 points.
  • Read two books that contain the same word in the title, but once in the singular and once in the plural. 40 points.
