Semi-Charmed Summer 2012 Book Challenge

Semi-Charmed Summer Book Challenge

The challenge will run from May 1 to September 1, 2012. I will earn points for reading books in the following categories:

Read a book chosen for the US 2012 World Book Night. (5 points) The Book Thief
Read a book you were supposed to read in school, but either bailed on or Cliff-Noted. (10 points)
Read a memoir or narrative nonfiction book. (10 points)
Read a book in one day. (15 points) Crash Into Me
Read a book that you’ve always wanted to read but haven’t gotten around to yet. (15 points)
The Road
Read a pair of books that have antonyms in the titles. (20 points)
Read a book that is set in a place you’ve never been but want to visit. (20 points) Divergent
Find a book written the year you were born that was later made into a movie or a movie released the year you were born that was based on a book. Read the book and watch the movie; compare. (25 points)
Go into a bookstore or library. Pick any bookshelf. Read the third book from the left on the fourth shelf from the top. (25 points)
Read a book about which you’ve heard bad things. (25 points) World War Z
Read a trilogy. (30 points) Game of Thrones, Clash of Kings

Total Points: 80

***This challenge is over. I only got 80 out of a possible 200 points! But this summer was crazy for me (traveling, coming home after two years abroad) so I still think I did pretty well. I even read two of the three books for a trilogy, so really I think I had 100 points!
