I adopted this challenge type from a German blogger who did it last year. I thought it cool to gain points a different way, as in not just for reading, but also for buying.
Without further ado, here are the rules for gaining points:
- Re-read a book in a series: +1
- Buy/borrow a book to finish a series: +2
- Read a new (for you) book in a series: +4
- Finish a series: +6
- Buy/borrow a book from a new series: -8
So you can set yourself a goal you want to achive, or you can just collect points along the way and see where it goes -- maybe you will surprise yourself. And yes, for the last book in a series you get 10 points!
