The Incredible Challenge Factory Scavenger Hunt XXII

The Challenge Factory discussion on goodreads

Scavenger Hunt XXII

Duration: April 1st to June 30th, 2017

•This “Challenge” works in conjunction with the other challenges you may participate in during this time frame. 

•While you are fulfilling the requirements of your other challenges, be on the lookout for the following items - they may be on the cover or mentioned in the book. Most items are specific, but if in doubt about an item – just ask!

•You may use a book to fulfill multiple items (you do not have to read 50 books for this not worry!) 

•When you find one of the items, list the Book Title and Author (or link the cover), date it, & rate it. Then specify where the item is found within the book. For audiobooks try to put the chapter if possible. If not, then at least let us know you got it from an audiobook.

•Books that are used must be read during the period of this challenge, the challenge does not start until 4/1/17, but you can get your lists together early. Good Luck & Happy Reading! ☺
