The Monthly Reading Challenge - Come share your targets and success!

Click here to scroll down to forum posts

Thank you to the lovely Elle for the beautiful red Awardicon and to Gaby for the awesome golden book trophy!
Forum is originally created by Fran 🏅🇬🇧🇬🇧🏅 who handed it over to me in order to take a good care of it while she's been away *Suitheart*.

As we all know, reading makes us better writers.  But, if you’re anything like me, you may need a target or two to encourage you to get your head down and read, or indeed, write.  This is where The Monthly Reading Challenge comes in! The object of the challenges is to set yourself reading targets for the month ahead and generally feel good when you finally hit your goal!

This is monthly challenge where you post your reading goals 1st day of the month and finish them by the 11:59 pm last day of that month. If you are interested in monthly prizes you need to read and provide somewhat constructive review for 3 or less books per month. Well, you can read more than that if you want to, I won't stop you *Bigsmile*. I thought that 3 books is more than enough, considering everyone's real life/on site schedule. Every month I will highlight a book by famous author which you can include in your reading goal (if you want to). To see highlighted book for this month, scroll down the forum page. This is optional for everyone, you can still choose to read whatever books you want, but if you read and review spotlighted book, plus the other two of your choice in that month, you will receive 2,000 GPs for THAT book review.

If you succeed with your reading goal, you will be added to "The Book Club group where you will be able to access your reading scores. So, below are some kind of basic rules of what you need to do if you decide to take a part in reading challenge:

*Books3* On the 1st to 5th day of the month post a message on the board, stating how many books you're planning to read for that month
*Books3* You can read almost anything you like. Please try and be specific - I will not accept "four or five" and the like
*Books3* Let us know what you’re planning to read – if you know, it's okay if you don’t
*Books3* Read
*Books3* Come back to this forum at the end of the month and post your update
*Books3* In order to keep the forum running smoothly, please post only twice- 1st time with your sign up and 2nd time with your reviews
*Books3* If you want to post reviews one by one make sure to edit your original 'reviews' post instead of making new ones all over again
*Books3* Choose how to show us that you've read your books (evidence). Your choices are:

          *Bullet* Review in forum
          *Bullet* Product review on WDC
          *Bullet* Review in WDC port (please provide link in forum)
          *Bullet* Review elsewhere (please provide link in forum)
          *Bullet* Discussion started in forum
          *Bullet* Photo or video (please provide link in forum)
          *Bullet* Other - some other cool way that I haven't thought of

*Books3* Your reviews should show that you really read those books which means you have to be more detailed about it
*Books3* Manga, comics, magazines DO NOT count as a books because those are rather mediums than actual uhm..books


*Books3* Each month there will be 1 non-exclusive MB to be won if you reach the target of 3 books
*Books3* If you read less than 3 books per month and provide evidence for each, you'll receive 500 GPs for each book review
*Books3* In order to receive Monthly Reading Challenge exclusive MB you have to make a full participation two months in a row within one year
*Books3* This means that you need to post your goal of 3 books, read those 3 books and provide review evidence of each, two months in a row
*Books3* This MB will be given once a year, not every time you make two months in a row participation
*Books3* You will also get the chance to win exclusive MB if you take a part in a special reading month that will have specific rules
*Books3* This will probably happen during WdC's birthday month, you will know more details before ahead

MB to be won for the month March 2019 is Endurance
(I'm following the same order they are displayed in shop because it's easier and I don't have to think about repetitive ones)

Lady Chatterley's Lover (Bantam Classics)
Product Type: Book
Amazon's Price: $ 5.39
You Save: $ 2.60

"Lady Chatterley's Lover" is a novel by D. H. Lawrence, first published privately in 1928 in Italy, and in 1929 in France and Australia. An unexpurgated edition was not published openly in the United Kingdom until 1960, when it was the subject of a watershed obscenity trial against the publisher Penguin Books. Penguin won the case, and quickly sold 3 million copies. The book was also banned for obscenity in the United States, Canada, Australia, India and Japan. The publication of a full translation of "Lady Chatterley's Lover" by Sei Itō in 1950 led to a famous obscenity trial in Japan, extending from 8 May 1951 to 18 January 1952, with appeals lasting to 13 March 1957. Several notable literary figures testified for the defence, and the trial ultimately ended in a guilty verdict with a ¥100,000 fine for Ito and a ¥250,000 fine for his publisher.The book soon became notorious for its story of the physical (and emotional) relationship between a working class man and an upper class woman, its explicit descriptions of sex, and its use of then-unprintable words.
