Information & Dates
So I have been thinking about doing this for a long time now, it is finally here. From November the 1st, thought the whole November month. I'm doing The Office Readathon, that I created, and if you wanna join, I will love that you used the hashtag #TheOfficeRead. I have made 12 Reading Prompt, and I made 12 To-do prompts.
From Monday 16th November to Sunday 22th. I'm doing a 24 Reading Challenge. The goal is to spend 24-hour reading that week, it doesn't matter if you read 2 hours Monday, 4 hours on Tuesday, and 6 hours on Friday, and 12 hours on Saturday or Sunday, or you just read all 24 in one sit. I wanna try a different way to do a 24 hour but still used that element. My goal is to try to read as much as I can that week. So if one month is too much you can join in that week, and see how much you can read.

The Office Mini Game
My goal was to do a bingo board, but I had a lot more trouble with it than I thought I would have so I made something ells. I made 3 teams (Romance, Contemporary & Villians), with 6 levels in it.
The way it all work is, you get 2 points if you start or finish a book that fits the reading prompt, so you don't need to finish the book before the point count. You get 2 points if you start a new book and you get 2 points if you finished a book. I tried to make it as easy as possible because I'm the type who read multiple books at the same time, and I wanted to make it as easy as could be to get points but also encourage people to finished their books. You can also get 1 point if you do something that fits the to-do prompt. So the goal is to get to level 6, in the team that you choose. If you finished a team and get to level 6, you can try to do another team, and see how it goes.
You can choose a team however you want to.
So 2 points for each book you read, and 1 point for any to-do prompt you do.
So let say you choose the team Romance, to get on level 1, you have to either start on a book that fits one of the reading prompts, which would give you 2 points, or you can choose to do two things from the "to-do prompt", which is 1 point + 1 point = 2 points.
To get on another level you need to add new points to the point you already have.
So to get on level 2, you have to add 2 points, to the points that you already have.
Check my Instagram @Serious.Lumiere where I will post some of these things too, and do some reading sprint, and if you choose to participle please use the hashtag #TheOfficeRead So I can like your post.
Sorry for the waiting, but thank you for reading and waiting.
(If you are looking at this on your phone and you can see the different team, check my Instagram, I will have them on my story or highlight)
