Bookopoly ReadAThon 📚 Round 2 💫 Announcement

You guys wanted Round 2 soon so here it is!

Dates

Round 2 of the Bookopoly ReadAThon will go for the entirety of September! From 12:00AM on the 1st of September till 11:59pm on the 30th of September!

The Bookopoly Board

You are welcome to download this image and enlarge to print out or simply download it and zoom in to see it better. Unfortunately, I couldn’t make the text any bigger or the information simply wouldn’t of fitted.

I break down this Bookopoly Board in my YouTube Announcement for the visually impaired

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

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 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

I have changed up the Adventure Space this round as I simply wasn’t happy with it for round 1. In round 2 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)

Adventure Map Challenges. See below.

Mardenia: Read a book with “Star” in the title
Maroo: Read a book with “Girl” in the title
Nialas: Read a book with “Fire” in the title
Hallowgate: Read a book with “Blood” in title
Graevale: Read a book with “Queen” in title
Chateau Shondelle: Read a book with “King” in title

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 Cover

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 the ability and on which space.

Magical Ability Challenges. See below.

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 2 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.

Get a Pet Challenges. See below.

Dog: Read a book featuring assassins
Cat: Read a book featuring murder
Bird: Read a book featuring magic
Lizard: Read a book featuring food
Fish: Read a book featuring dragons
Hamster: Read a book featuring royalty

Corner Spaces

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!

Bookopoly ReadAThon Google Sheet

Discord!

We have a discord for you all to chat on! We will also be hosting sprints on this Discord rather than Twitter, so make sure you come and join us!

Bookopoly ReadAThon Discord

Twitter

We also have a Twitter where we encourage people to share their current reads and progress around the board and tag us in it so we can see how everyone is going!

TBR Jar ReadAThon – Round #4 Announcement!

Dates: 24th – 30th of May, 2019

How it works

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, it really doesn’t matter. 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 to make it interesting)
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.

Extra Info

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 or Instagram 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.

Magical ReadAThon – Charms Extra Credit Edition TBR

Copy of Header Image (2)

Yes! Another ReadAThon. By the end of MateAThon I will have been doing ReadAThons for over 4 weeks straight! I’m crazy, I know.

This round of Magical ReadAThon is an addition to the OWLs & NEWTs. Basically, there are 5 prompts and for each prompt you complete you will get an extra day prior to the next round of OWLs to complete the book you choose for that subject. In this case, it is for Charms, so if I completed 3 prompts I would be able to start my charms book 3 days before OWLs starts! She is also planning on doing this for other subjects between now & OWLs.
Also, the OWLs ReadAThon is apparently happening in April I heard.

TBR Jar ReadAThon Round #2 Announcement

Copy of Header Image (2)

 

 

This Round will be going from midnight on the 8th till 11:59pm on the 14th of September (7 days long)

Blog titles (18)

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.

Blog titles (19)

You can choose to pull the number of names for your goal out of the jar prior to the ReadAThon of 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.

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

June CramAThon 2018 Wrap Up

Header Image (11)

So the CramAThon finished last night as I am soo happy with how much I read! I completed all 7 challenges as well as partly listened to 2 other audiobooks & partly read another book. I’ll just tell you here what those books were as they weren’t actually for the CramAThon.
Also here is my reading vlog for the full week of CramAThon

Blog titles (24).png

During the week I was listening to & finished Harry Potter & the Philosopher’s Stone. I didn’t record what the starting point was for this week but it was fairly early into the book & I completed it during this week. I also read 27 more pages of King of Ashes by Raymond E. Feist which is a book I’m slowly making my way through. Lastly, I listened to 188 pages of The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken on audiobook.

Scallywagathon Round 2 TBR

Header Image (5)

Okay, so some of you may remember me participating in round 1 back in November and guess what it is happening again! This ReadAThon was not on my May ReadAThon Guide as it was only announced 2 days ago. I am going to copy and paste the info section from my the round 1 TBR as it is all working the same, the only difference is the challenges. This ReadAThon is pretty complex and can be confusing, so I hope my explanation helps you!

Blog titles (22)

This ReadAThon starts at midnight on the 20th of May & ends at 11:59 on the 27th of May.

You can watch Ali’s video HERE for a whole in depth desrciption of the ReadAThon along with an example TBR but I am going to try and explain it!

Firstly, the map!

*This was taken from the link in Ali’s video.*

Screen Shot 2018-05-13 at 11.51.58 am

Every number and letter on the map corresponds to a challenge in the graphic below!
Okay, so how this map works is first you pick a number between 1 & 5. Once you pick your starting point you follow the corresponding coloured line to the next challenge. Most of them have more than one option you can choose from. Then when you get to your first stop you then follow that number or letter’s corresponding coloured line to the next challenge until you get to the treasure chest. All of the tracks you take will have 4 challenges but if you finish those 4 in the week you are welcome to continue onto any of the other challenges you wish.
So, here is an example of how to navigate the map. I am going to start at 1, from there I will follow the dark purple line to 6, from there I will follow the orange line to A and then from A I will follow the dark blue line to 9 and then to the treasure! Hopefully, that makes sense.

The path I will be following is:

5 > 8 > A > 9

5: Calm before the storm – The first in a series

A Shot in the Dark by Lynne Truss

9781408890493.jpg

This is an Adult Mystery that I received an ARC of and need to read by the end of June. This one comes out 28th of June in Aus.

8: Yo Ho Ho! – Book that starts with ‘RRRRRR’

Rise of Fire by Sophie Jordan

61FNM2HnNyL._SL500_

This is the second book in the Reign of Shadows duology. I listened to Reign of Shadows a while ago and really enjoyed it! Reign of Shadows is a dark Rapunzel retelling and it ended on a rather large cliffhanger so I’m keen to continue.

A: Marooned: Standalone

Endless Night by Agatha Christie

51vkX3TwXUL._SL500_

There is a heap of Agatha Christie books on Scribd, so I hunted through her standalones and came up with this one!

9: Blow down the man – A book by a woman author

The Theft and the Miracle by Rebecca Wade

y450-293 (4)

This is one of the books I am reading for the Book to School challenge. It is also by a female author, so perfect!!

Are You Reading More Than A 5th Grader? ReadAThon TBR

Header Image (2)

Okay, so you may have seen my TBR for the Book To School Challenge over at TBR and Beyond on Facebook! Well alongside that challenge they have a week-long ReadAThon going on to help us get those Book To School TBRs complete!! I thought I would share my TBR here!!

If you want to join in! Head over to TBR and Beyond and press join!! It is a super fun group with heaps of things going on! We even have author chats coming up in the next few months!

Blog titles (2)

So as there are no challenges, I don’t have a definite TBR, but these are the books that I hope to have finished by the end of the ReadAThon!

So I plan to read 6 books. 3 audiobooks and 3 books. I have already started Dragon on Trial and Beneath the Sugar Sky so I may have finished them before the readathon or at least read a fair chunk of them. They are both really short, so I probably will get them finished beforehand.
Krakens and Lies is pretty short too, but I want to continue the Menagerie series as it has been awesome so far!
Mark of the Thief is one of the books on my Book To School TBR, so I need to get to it!
Snow Like Ashes is the BOTM for the Facebook group I run, The YA Book Nerds, so I need to get on that reread so I can write the discussion questions.
Lastly, Whisper is an eARC I have, however, the book is already out and I bought myself a physical copy yesterday when I saw it at Kmart. So hopefully I love it or that will be a waste of money! I have high hopes as I loved The Medoran Chronicles by Lynette Noni!
