Read-A-Thon: Scavenger Hunt…COYER Style

Posted January 22, 2015 by Lillian in Challenges / 7 Comments



So I enjoyed Dusting off the Shelves so much that I decided to join the next read-a-thon and it’s a scavenger hunt ๐Ÿ˜€ The premise is that we are given a list of 25 topics and we then find books that match them, read them, and mark them off to get points. These points equal entries into a rafflecopter for…you guessed it another free book!

The scavenger hunt starts this Sunday Jan. 25th and runs through February 8th. That’s a full two weeks. I usually read somewhere between 2-3 books a week depending on length and how interesting it may be. My goal is to read 6 books ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m very much a mood reader so what I did was I went through the list that was sent to me and I found books that matched all the topics…well almost all of them, if it’s in green that topic doesn’t have a match. Here they are by point value (covers link to Goodreads):
