#TheReadingQuest: Final Score Board

TheReadingQuest Scoreboard.png

After a month of adventuring and reading, the first Reading Quest has come to an end! I’ve been so overwhelmed and humbled by the enthusiasm the community has had for the Quest. I hope you’ve all had fun reading books, conquering challenges, and leveling up your characters. Thank you to everyone who has participated and helped promote the reading challenge!

For those interested in entering to win the prizes, please comment below using the following format with your total number of HP and EXP earned during the challenge. I will pick ONE international and ONE AUS/NZ Champion! Result will be announced on Saturday 30th of September to give people time to write their wrap up post if they wish.

Name and Blog:

Character Class: If you completed multiple, please list them all in order of completion

Challenge Name/Book Title (e.g. First Book in a Series/This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab): Amount of EXP and HP earned . Please repeat this for all the challenges you completed.
–  10 EXP each books read OR 20 EXP for a book written by a marginalised author. Half points respectively for graphic novel/poetry format.
–  Every 10 pages you read during the Quest will give you +1HP. The exception are graphic novels/manga, which will give you +1HP every 20 pages. Half points for graphic novel/poetry format.

Number of Character Quest Completed: +50 EXP for the first character quest completed. Every other character quest completed after that gives you +30EXP.

Social Media Interaction Bonus Points (max of 20HP).

Link to your Wrap Up Post: OPTIONAL

Please refer to the original post & FAQ if you have any questions regarding the points. How this plays out depends on everyone’s honesty, as I cannot physically monitor whether people have read all of the books they’ve listed – so play fair ;)!

For those who missed out on the first Reading Quest, never fear – I have plans to bring it back over the next holiday season! Stay tuned.

      1. I got 435 exp+10 for initial start…the highest exp you can get is 530 with all marginalized authors (that includes the 10 to start) so it doesn’t make sense that you have 515 because without the knight the highest you can get is 430+(10 to start) I think. idk I might be wrong! sorry I couldn’t help more :/
