Bookopoly – Chance Challenge #3

August 28, 2017 Bookopoly 0

I hope every one is enjoying the challenge so far and managing to tick off the reading challenges. If you haven’t signed up yet, there is still tons of time as Bookopoly takes place ALL YEAR! You can check out what Bookopoly is all about and sign up here.

Time for the 3rd Chance Challenge of the year!

This is something that I have wanted to do myself for a very long time. I’m forever seeing posts from people who have found a little note in a book they have just bought or borrowed and it looks like such a cute thing to do!

Put a sticky note with a heart next to your favourite quote, or an ‘OMG’ next to the big twist moment, or why not just put a little note at the beginning of the book telling the person you hope they enjoy it. It literally could be anything! Just keep it positive, kid-friendly (no swearwords!) and bookish!!!

You have 5 days to complete this challenge! This challenge will end on Saturday 2nd September at 11am (GMT).

Bookopoly 2017

January 3, 2017 Bookopoly 16

I don’t know about you but I love taking part in bookish challenges. They have helped me to broaden my reading and try out so many new things and I wanted to find a way to do this for other people who are maybe a bit stuck in a rut with their own reading. So here it is … Bookopoly!

Why Should You Take Part?

This challenge is specifically designed to get you trying out new things when it comes to your reading life. Whether it’s a new genre, author, topic or a bookish activity that you wouldn’t normally do… give it a go!

For people who aren’t big readers it’s a great way to motivate you to read more and maybe try out something different. For those of you who are a bit more experienced then it’s a great way to show off your bookish awesomeness as you make you way round the board!

The board can look a little intimidating at first, but don’t let it worry you… it’s not a competition. It’s about YOU and YOUR OWN reading experience. And you can still enter the giveaway and have the chance to win a great prize at the end of the challenge, even if you haven’t completed the entire board.

How Does It Work?

  • The challenge will take place during the entire year, from 1st January – 31st December 2017.
  • Sign ups will be open all year.
  • There will be numerous giveaways throughout the year that you can enter dependent on what you have completed so far, plus one final EPIC giveaway in December 2017!
  • You don’t have to complete the board in order. If you want to, sure go for it, but it’s not a requirement. If you want to make it more of a challenge then you could even roll a dice to determine which challenge you will complete next!
  • If you read more than one book for a specific challenge then you can earn ‘Shelves’ (kind of like houses in Monopoly). If you collect 3 Shelves for any one challenge then you earn yourself a Bookcase! This will give you more chance to win something in the giveaways throughout the year!

Check out the board below (Download links further down the page)

Instructions

  1. Sign up and introduce yourself in the comments of this post. If you have done a sign up post on your own blog then make sure to include the link in your comments so other people can check out your Bookopoly progress!
  2. Download your Bookopoly board! (Link below) There is also a  Suggestions Sheet if you are having trouble finding books for any of the tasks and a Progress Sheet for keeping track of what you have read for each task. You could also keep track of what you have read in a Goodreads Shelf.
  3. READ! READ! READ!
  4. There are 4 boxes on the board marked with large question marks. These are Chance Challenges and the tasks are a mystery! One Chance will be unveiled in February, May, August and November and you will have just 5 days to complete the task!
  5. There will be a wrap up post on here in December on which you can share your progress for the challenge and enter the giveaway!

“Find your birthday book! Share a picture/the cover of a book published in the same month and year as your birthday.”

Maybe see if you can find a book released on the actual day too! To make this challenge even harder try and find an actual physical copy of the book, at your local library and pose for a selfie! If you haven’t already read it give it a go! You could always use it as you book for ‘Released pre-2000’ (well, if you are over 17!)

You have 5 days to complete this challenge! This challenge will end on Saturday 4th March at 11am (GMT).
