October 2021 TBR and Beyond Halloween Challenge


October is always a fun month for TBR and Beyond.  We’re doing an event with teams this time.  You can join HERE.



The Rules:


This month our challenge is “All Hallow’s Eve Carnival !” event and it is a battle – there are THREE teams to choose from. Once you are assigned a team, you can start working on your reading prompts (on October 1st), which will earn points for you and your entire team.
The prompts for the challenge are on the graphic on this post as well as on a separate post in the event if you are looking for it. They will be detailed in this post as well to help our visually impaired members. We can help with recommendations in any category. Feel free to print it out and mark it up as you please. There is no doubling up on prompts for this one.
Your reads can be from any category (unless otherwise specified).
The team with the most points at the end of the month wins!
Prize this month will be any book from Book Depository (up to $15 US). The winner will be randomly drawn from the winning team.
Prize Entries –
Each book read is worth 1 points
Bonus Points are worth 2 points
Each activity is worth 5 points
Finish the game (Every single reading and activity prompt – 20 points EXTRA)
– We maybe have one or two more ways to earn entries as time of the month goes on, so keep an eye out for that.
Hopefully this is a fun, challenge and don’t worry if you can’t do it all. This is was just meant to be something to keep us distracted while we are all stuck inside!
