The Basics

For this ReadAThon all you have to do is roll 2 dice and make your way around the board earning or losing points based on the spaces you land on and what is required for each space. Pretty simple but I have added some fun elements like quizzes & bonus challenges throughout!

Also, if you roll a double when making your way around the board you simply roll again. Roll doubles, move your marker, roll again and then complete the challenge in that space. This is the same as in the actual game to keep it easy.

Different types of spaces

Brown Cover Property Space

Property spaces

All you have to do when you land on one of these is Read a book that fits the challenge and once you do you Earn the specified points & then take your next roll.
I have tried to keep the challenges broad but if you simply do not have a book that fits the challenge you can read something that is kinda similar but doesn’t quite fit and still earn full points or read something that is the complete opposite. Get creative with it. As long as you can justify the book you chose then you can earn the points.
If you land on the same property space twice throughout the month you can either complete the challenge again and earn more points OR skip and roll again but not earn any points.

Treasure Chest Space

Treasure Chest Spaces!

These replace the Community Chest spaces on a normal Monopoly board. For Treasure Chest you will need to complete a Quiz. You can always find the Quizzes linked in our Twitter Bio.
The Treasure Chest Quiz will result in you receiving a Treasure Chest Card where you could earn or lose points depending on which you get. If you land on this square more than once you will need to retake the test to receive another card but for the second time you must answer the quiz questions the opposite of what you first answered them so that you can discover a new card.

Adventure Space

Adventure

When you land on the space you must head over to the Adventure Map. Start at Haroyell on the map and chose a path at random. When you reach the end of that path you will need to complete the corresponding challenge to earn the 100 points for this space.

Adventure Map

Haroyell > Meya
Haroyell > Soori Outpost
Haroyell > Dupressa
Meya > Mardenia (End of Route)
Meya > Ezera Forest
Soori Outpost > Akarnae Academy
Soori Outpost > Garon
Dupressa > Garon
Ezera Forest > Mount Paedris
Akarnae Academy > Woodhaven
Garon > Chateau Shondelle (End on Route)
Garon > Denasa
Mount Paedris > Maroo (End of Route)
Mount Paedris > Woodhaven
Denasa > Graevale (End of Route)
Woodhaven > Tryllin
Woodhaven > Karonia
Tryllin > Nialas (End of Route)
Karonia > Hallowgate (End of Route)

Mardenia: Read a book with “Wild” in the title
Maroo: Read a book with “Night” in the title
Nialas: Read a book with “Dragon” in the title
Hallowgate: Read a book with “Dead” in title
Graevale: Read a book with “Star” in title
Chateau Shondelle: Read a book with “Queen” in title

Forgot your book Space

Forgot your book & Dropped your book Spaces

These spaces replace the Luxury Tax/Income Tax spaces on a real Monopoly board. Landing on either of these means you lose points and you will continue to lose points every time you land on them.

Bookshelf Space: Tree/s on cover

Bookshelf Spaces

The Book Shelf spaces replace the Train Stations/Airports on normal Monopoly boards. For these squares there is also a Reading Challenge which functions the same as the property spaces, however you have the ability to earn bonus points with these squares! You can land on any Book Shelf space and complete the challenge more than once. If you complete 1 challenge you receive 100 points, if you land on a 2nd Book Shelf space and complete the challenge you received 150 points, 3rd is 200 points & 4th is 250 points. This counts for all of the Bookshelf spaces, so first you could land on the left most Book Shelf, complete the challenge and get 100 points & then the next time you could land on the right side Book Shelf, complete the challenge and get another 150 points. You do not have to land on and recomplete the exact same space just to get the bonus points.
This is slightly hard to explain but hopefully this makes sense! Any questions simply comment below.

Magical Ability

Magical Ability

Introducing the Magical Ability space! This replaces the Sorting Hat space for Round 1. For the Magical Ability space you will need to use a random number generator or get a person to chose a number at random for you between 1 & 6. You will then receive the corresponding magical ability. You can only use this ability once for each time you land on the space. You do not need to use the ability straight away. It is completely up to you when you use your ability and on which space.

1. Skip 1 challenge & earn the points
2. Earn double points on 1 challenge
3. Double the amount on your dice roll
4. Skip 1 challenge (no points earned)
5. Change 1 word in a challenge to suit you
6. Read any book you chose for 1 challenge

Get a Pet space!

Get a Pet!

The Get a Pet space replaced the Reaping space from Round 1. In Round 3 to receive a pet companion to go on your Bookopoly ReadAThon journey you will need to check out the Get a Pet Graphic, choose your type of pet & complete the corresponding challenge. When the challenge is completed you receive your pet & 100 points!

Dog: Read a book with food on the cover
Cat: Read a book with a POC on the cover
Bird: Read a book with a hat on the cover
Lizard: Read a book with flowers on the cover
Fish: Read a book with a crown on the cover
Hamster: Read a book with blood on the cover

Corner Spaces

Go Space

Obviously we have the starting point, Go which is where you begin and will also collect 200 points every time you go past.

Next is the In a Reading Slump/Just waiting space. This is where you will sit if you are In a Reading Slump. To get out of the Reading Slump you have 3 options!
Roll a doubles on your dice within 5 rolls (If you don’t roll doubles within 5 rolls you must choose another option)
OR
Lose 100 points
OR
Use a ‘Get Out of Your Reading Slump Free Card’

Next is the Library. This is just to fill space. If you land on this space simply roll again and continue on.

Lastly is the Fall into a Reading Slump space. If you land on this one you must head on over to the In a Reading Slump square and follow the above rules. If you pass ‘GO’ do NOT collect 200 points.

Points Tracker

I have set up a Google Sheet for you guys to record your points & current position on the board. It is up to you to keep track of your points but this just gives you a place to put that information!

TBR Jar ReadAThon Round #3 Announcement!

It’s time for round 3 of TBR Jar ReadAThon!!

Dates: 27th of January – 2nd of February

This ReadAThon is pretty simple. First, pick a goal. I will be aiming for 7 books, but you can choose as many or as little books as you wish.
Next, grab a jar, or cup, or hat, I don’t care. Something you can put names into.
For the next step, you can do this one a few ways.
Option 1 is to put all the books on your TBR (physical, eBook, audiobook, whatever you wish) into a hat.
Option 2, you can pick some of the books you are most looking forward to and put them in a hat. (Try and put at least double the amount that is your goal)
Option 3, (this is what I will be doing), get a 2nd jar, in 1 jar put all the physical & eBooks books on your TBR into it and in the 2nd jar put all the audiobooks on your TBR.
Lastly, pick a name out of the jar and read that book, then pick another name and read that book and continue until you either hit your goal or run out of time in the ReadAThon.

You can choose to pull the number of names you choose for your goal out of the jar prior to the ReadAThon or pull them out as you go.

Use the hashtag #TBRJarRAT so I can see what you’re up to (also if it is on Twitter then you can tag the @TBRJarRAT page too.

So, some of you may have a few books from the same series still on your TBR. Join the club. So if this is the case, you can either choose to only put the 1st book (or the book you are up to) in the TBR jar OR you can put it in as the full series. So if you pick up that name, then you have to try and read all the books from that series that you have on your shelf.
This ReadAThon is very customisable, so do whatever fits you.

Blog titles (2)

Yes, we have Instagram Challenges! They are completely optional but are there if you want to join in!

Photography Blog Announcement!

So as some of you know, besides books, I am also a photography lover! I am in no way a professional, it is just a hobby that I really love! For ages, I have considered making either a blog or Instagram for my photography and last night I finally decided to do one! Last night I made a Tumblr blog specifically for my photography! Depending on how well it goes on the blog I may also consider creating an Instagram for it! Let me know what you think in the comments!

To see my photography blog click HERE!!

Here is a little preview of what the blog looks like. I kept it simple as I want the photos to stand out, not the background or anything.

I would really appreciate it if you followed my Tumblr account and please let me know if you would follow a Photography Instagram if I made it!
