Duration: January 1 – December 30, 2018

Discovery Bookshelf Challenge

This is an individual challenge to help you set a goal of reading up to 52 books off of your massive TBR shelves for 2018.

Each Bookshelf will have exactly 30 books off of your TBR, not 28, not 29, 31 or 32, but exactly 30.

Once you read a book off of you Discovery Bookshelf, uncheck it from the shelf and add 1 replacement book to the shelf from your TBR so that your shelf will ALWAYS equal 30 books!

So how do you access your Discovery Bookshelf?
Read these instructions:

Step 1: Choose a level of reading - weekly, bi-weekly, monthly (if you finish early you can go with the next call-out to read another book)

Weekly – one book per week
Bi-weekly – one book per 2 weeks
Monthly – one book per month

Step 2: Create a shelf named:Discovery Bookshelf (or whatever you want to call it)

To create a new shelf:

Go to my books
Click on “add shelf” found along the left side of your screen, under your existing list of shelves
Type in the name of your shelf "Discovery Bookshelf", and click add

Step 3: Add EXACTLY 30 books to the shelf

**The books you add to your shelf must be available to read right now. Don't add books you can't get your hands on until later or you will get behind.

Step 4: After your shelf is complete, scroll to the bottom of the page and change your shelf to cover view by clicking on cover view found in the upper right of your screen (looks like 4 little solid squares).

Step 5: Scroll down to the bottom of the page on yoru shelf and set the "per page" to 30. You should now have a 6x5 grid of covers.

Step 6: Post your tracking in the TRACKING THREAD
Make 1 post to keep track of all of your progress:

Example:
Week 1: Jan 1-Jan 7 - Sea of Shadows (Age of Legends, #1) by Kelley ArmstrongSea of Shadows (Jan 4) ★★★★★
Week 2: Jan 8-14 - Sleeping Beauties by Stephen KingSleeping Beauties (Jan 10) ★★★★★
Week 3: Jan 15-21 - Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls by David SedarisLet's Explore Diabetes with Owls(Jan 18) ★★★½
Week 4: Jan 22-28 - A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2) by Sarah J. MaasA Court of Mist and Fury (Jan 27) ★★★★★


Step 7: On Sunday Nights, I will call a randomly selected row and column number. All of the call-outs will be posted
HERE in the Call-Out Thread.

Read the book associated with the row and column listed in your cover view. If you are not playing weekly, you may choose which week(s) to participate.

Example: Row 3, column 5

Using my shelf as an example, Bookshelf Discovery, Row 3, column 5 I would read Dexter Is Dead (Dexter, #8) by Jeff LindsayDexter Is Dead
***Please note: the book order on the shelf is not the same for everyone. It is affected by how you choose to organize your books, for this challenge you can choose Random at the bottom of the page to get even more fun in which book you select.

**Use this grid as a guide.

This is what your cover view square looks like:

R1C1 - R1C2 - R1C3 - R1C4 - R1C5 - R1C6
R2C1 - R2C2 - R2C3 - R2C4 - R2C5 - R2C6
R3C1 - R3C2 - R3C3 - R3C4 - R3C5 - R3C6
R4C1 - R4C2 - R4C3 - R4C4 - R4C5 - R4C6
R5C1 - R5C2 - R5C3 - R5C4 - R5C5 - R5C6

By the following Saturday night I would need to replace Dexter Is Dead (Dexter, #8) by Jeff Lindsay with another book.

Step 8: Keep your shelf updated! Your shelf must ALWAYS have 30 books on it on the day the new book is called. Since the position called each week will be randomly selected, the same spot may be called more than once.

*You will need to move out the books you've read and replace them with new books.

*If you also read other books that happened to be on your shelf during the week that you will need to replace those as well so that you ALWAYS have 30 books.

Your shelf should be updated by Sunday at 12:00am CST.

You may replace books that you've read for this or other challenges with other series TBR books. You may replace books that you've lost interest in or move in newly released books.

Step 9: Update your participation post with your book and rating. Please do not make a new post.

Step 10: Earn Badges By Reading! Check out the BADGES you can earn HERE!

If you have any questions, ask them in the Q&A

***Note: If you miss the start of this challenge, you may join in at anytime.
