It is June 1st, so that means a new Seasonal Reading Challenge
is starting. I have been participating in this challenge since December 2011, so I am starting my 7th quarter. Every three months, a new set of tasks is set and you keep track of the ones you complete and earn points. Examples of tasks are "Read a book with a day of the week in the title/subtitle." or "read a book with water on the cover." but they can and do get more complicated than that. Often there are six options and you pick two or you roll two dice to decide which two you complete. There is always a 50 point challenge set at the halfway point that requires 3 books.
Many people complete the challenge, which means they read 80-90 books in three months! I do not read that fast, but I still enjoy the challenge. I usually get between 300 and 400 points and read around 20 books. The best I did was 540 points last summer out of a possible 1080. This summer there are 71 tasks and 1350 points possible.
