I ran across this book challenge on The Brambler blog, and I am going to go for it and see how many points I can rack up! Join me?
Rules: First book to count for any category has to be a new book to you. Rereads only count after you’ve completed the category. One book counts for one category even if it could fit into multiple categories. No double-counting a book.
.1 Points (Meaning 1/10 of a point)
1) Picture books
.5 Points (Meaning 1/2 a point)
1) Easy reader books/children's books under 100 pages
1) Author to match every letter of the alphabet (Last names, that is. And 5 points for every book.) * x: You get a free five points for x. Make that 15 points if you actually find an author whose last name starts with x. :)
