Update November 2017: I can confirm that the Bookopoly Challenge will be taking place again in 2018, so if you are late to the party this year, don’t worry. I’ll be announcing all info mid-late December, so make sure to check back or sign up to my mailing list!
It’s time for my first ever challenge hosted on Broc’s Bookcase: Bookopoly. And yes, your right. It’s kind of like monopoly but with a bookish twist. Below you will find the Bookopoly board, full of mini bookish challenges for you to complete. Each one gets you closer to completing the entire board!
So how do you play?
- Sign up and introduce yourself on the Bookopoly 2017 Sign Up post. If you have done a sign up post on your own blog then make sure to include the link in the comments so other people can check out your Bookopoly progress!
- Download your Bookopoly board. 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.
- READ! READ! READ!
- There will be multiple giveaways taking place throughout the year dependant on what you have already achieved.
- 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!
Rules and Instructions
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!
You can only use a book once.
Re-read’s are allowed but they must be re-read in 2017.
Completing all 3 tasks of the same colour will earn you a colour card. Share it on social media and brag to the world about how amazing you are doing in the challenge! (don’t forget to tag me in it!) The more of these you hold will give you a better chance of winning in the giveaways.
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!
Shelves & Bookcases
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 chances to win in the giveaways throughout the year!
Bookish Activity Challenges
There are 4 Bookish Activities for you to complete throughout the year, explanations for each can be found on the Suggestions Sheet. Make sure when you share them on social media that you tag me in them so that I know you have completed the challenge!
I Would Love Your Feedback
This is my first year of running this challenge so it is a lot of trial and error. I would love your thoughts on anything you love about the challenge or anything that you feel isn’t working. Any suggestions for future challenges are also very welcome. Thanks!
