Fantasy, Sci-Fi & Dystopia Challenge


Da eine amerikanische Freundin von mir gerne bei der Challenge mitmachen würde, übersetze ich die Informationen ins Englische. Es handelt sich um die gleiche Challenge wie diese hier.

Jetzt geht es auf englisch weiter ...


All Fantasy, Science Fiction and Dystopia books read and reviewed during the time of the challenge count for this challenge. In addition there will be tasks to fulfill and monthly themes to focus on, which will earn you extra points.

rules & information:
* All participants need to have a challenge page. Please tell us the link to your challenge page and update it monthly. On the challenge page you should add the points you earn and links to your reviews. 
* If you want to participate, but don't have a blog, you can join our Facebook group. It is mainly in German, but at least 1 admin (Betty) understands english. The document section can be used to make a challenge site and add your updates.
* Please add links from your challenge site back to our blogs: Bettys Welt & Bücherjunky.
* The tasks will stay the same for all 12 months and can be done whenever you would like. Not all tasks have to be done, but the more you manage, the more extra-points you will earn at the end of the challenge.
* Each book can only be used for 1 task. You can chose which one you use it for.
* Each month we will pick a special theme. If you read books that fit the theme during that month you earn extra points.
* The challenge will last from 15th January 2015 to 14th January 2016.
* Feel free to use the challenge header on your blog.

points:
* every Fantasy, Sci-Fi or Dystopia book: 1 point
* every task: 3 points (in addition to the 1 for reading & reviewing)
* if a book fits the months theme, it gets 2 instead of 1 point
* if the book is from your pile of unread books you get 1 additional point (we want to see that pile shrink ;-))
* 12 filled tasks (at the end of the challenge): 5 points
* 24 filled tasks (at the end of the challenge): 10 points

  1. Hallo Betty,

    nichts für Ungut.

    Nee so einen Stress tue ich mir als nur Leserin nicht an. Aber ich beteilige mich gerne mal im Gegenzug an einer Leserunde. Ich finde es, persönlich schon sich mit anderen über ein bestimmtes Buch aus zu tauschen.

    Aber egal jedem sein Ding.

    LG..Karin..

    1. Hi Karin,

      ich lasse mich da zum Glück nicht stressen. Was ich nicht schaffe, schaffe ich nicht. Mir macht es einfach Spaß, quasi etwas abzuhaken. Und wenn ich mich nicht entscheiden kann, was ich lesen soll, kann ich in die Challenges schauen und mir eine Anregung holen. :-)

      Wenn wir eine Leserunde für die Challenge machen sollten, kann ich ja auch dem Blog Bescheid geben. Könntest dann, falls du Lust hast, einfach so mitlesen. ;-) Ich finde es auch schön, sich über Bücher auszutauschen.

      LG,

      Betty
