Full House Reading Challenge Completion Link 2018

Banner

As some participants have completed the card I am just posting the final link for when a full house is completed and the twenty five books are read. Of course you can always rinse and repeat if you so wish!

This link will close on the 2nd January 2019  and a winner will be chosen using random.org for one U.S. $40 prize which again can be used to buy books at the Book Depository or be received as an Amazon voucher. Often participants never come back to link to the completion line!  I will therefore open it early so that you can do it and forget it!

Full House Reading Challenge 2018

Challenge button

Challenge Guidelines:

  • Challenge will run from Jan 1st to December 31st 2018
  • Write and publish a post stating your intention to participate. In the post please include the Challenge graphic and a link back to this post. Then link your intention post at the bottom of this post.  Make sure it is the actual post and not just a generic link to your blog.  If you do not have a blog, leave a comment with stating your intention below and how you are going to track.
  • Add your reviews back here on the link in this post. At the end of every three months there will be two prizes of  U.S. $15 prize with a book of your choice from the Book Depository or U.S. Amazon voucher, for the entries. There will be a new linky then for the next quarter and so on to the end of December.
  • Reviews are not mandatory and if you prefer to keep a list of the books read and the category they cross off the card, then you can still enter for the completion of a Full House by linking to that list on the final linky or in a comment. The list could be kept on somewhere like Goodreads or in a Google doc.  If you are on Goodreads but don’t have a blog you might like to link your reviews to the linky to be in to win the quarterly prizes.  Or any place where you do reviews on the web.

Link Ups Each Quarter.

Jan – March    Now Closed

April- June      Now Closed

July – September   Now Open

October – December   

  • Each review can only be linked up once in the year. However it doesn’t matter when you read the book in 2018 – which month, just link as you remember or have time. So if you read it in January you may not get around to linking it until say… May. That is fine.
  • Books may cross over from other challenges that you are doing. However a different book for each square, one book cannot cover two squares.
  • There will be a final post to link in a summary post for the challenge for those who have completed a full house. This will close on the 2nd January 2019  and a winner will be chosen using random.org for one U.S. $40 prize which again can be used to buy books at the Book Depository or be received as an Amazon voucher. Often participants never come back to link to the completion line!  I will therefore open it early so that you can do it and forget it!

    • Complete the card below.  You can do it in any order you wish.  You are allowed “one free exchange“, if there is something on the square you really dislike you may change it to something of your choice. Once you have played this free choice that is it. Mention the exchange in the final summary post.

    Full House Reading Challenge Grid 2016
    * Self Challenge means setting a challenge for yourself for this square. For example I might set read a book my a male author, because I hardly ever do that. Or …
    * Setting beginning with B. This can be a country, a state, a place, a street. Or it could be a beach or the bush or a bookshop. Long as a good part of the book is set there, the whole book might be, but it doesn’t have to be.
    This is a challenge designed for fun rather than stress! Just keep reading and see how many just naturally check off a square. That’s how I play this kind of card. I don’t set out to do it – it just happens in my reading year. Mostly!
    If you have any questions, ask in the comments and I will add the answers in the post just above here.
