Reading Challenge: #TheReadingQuest–Sign Up

Created by @ ReadAtMidnight/Character Art by @ ReadThinkPonder

*Cue The Guild theme song*

Greeting fellow lit-venturers!  It’s time to embark on an adventure through literary portals wielding whatever magic or skills we choose to hone.  In none other than The Reading Quest!


Summary

The Reading Quest, crafted by the mystical and talented Aentee from Read at Midnight, is a videogame based reading challenge

–a TBR RPG (role playing game) running from August 13th to September 10th.  (All artwork for the challenge and found in this post was conjured by CW from Read, Think, Ponder.  I wish I could make pretty art with fancy font. *sighs*) Readers select one of four roles: a mage, knight, rogue, or bard.  Players follow the path of their chosen role and read books from their TBR that match the prompts on that path.

Readers can also track points (health points and experience points) they earn for the number of pages and books they read, the type of books they read, and completing their path. Bonus squares, in the center, offer extra reading prompts and more opportunities to earn points.  Those ambitious readers that finish all of the prompts for their role may choose another role and path for additional points.  Points can also be earned by posting on social media, using #TheReadChallenge hashtag.

The reader with the highest score at the end of the challenge is deemed The Quest Champion and will be awarded bookish treasure! For more details and to sign up, visit The Reading Quest.  Sign up ends August 13th, so hurry!

My Magical TBR

Since I’ve chosen the Mage, I’ll follow the prompts in the first column.  This is my TBR as of today.  It may change or grow with time.

The First Book of a Series:  The Reader by Traci Chee

A Book Set in a Different World:  The Library of Fates by Aditi Khorana

A Book Based on Mythology:  The Waking Land by Callie Bates

A Book that Contains Magic:  Beasts Made of Night by Tochi Onyebuchi

A Book with a One Word Title:  Nyxia by Scott Reintgen

Looks like a pretty good list to start.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to read bonus books too.  (That would give me a great excuse to read The Sandcastle Empire by Kayla Olson. Would it?) I’ll try to track my progress and update this post as often as possible.  I’ll also post some updates on social media (Twitter, Litsy, Goodreads, and so on) as well.  (Did you know there’s a Goodreads group for this challenge?)

I can’t wait to get started.  It puts me in the mood to play Fat Princess again.  (You tattering flack-dragon! ^_^)  How about you?  Are you joining the challenge?  Which role will you pick and which books will you read?  Comment below!  And, as always,…

Happy Reading!

UPDATE:  I really loved the CP Tracker Windie from Dip into Books (formerly Windie from Geek Apprentice) created for the #ReadThemAllThon, the Pokemon-inspired reading challenge.  It saved me so much time and was so easy to use; I could focus much more on my reading and less on my point tracking.  So, I decided to modify her original spreadsheet for this challenge (which I hope is okay).  And, yes, I did get a little carried away–just a little.
You can find it here: The_Reading_Quest_XP_and_HP_Tracker.  (Please let me know if there are any problems with it.)  Hope you like it! ^_^

  1. Hello! Thank you for the link back and credit.
    Sure, you can modify it ^_^
    I was thinking to join this challenge myself, but it’s just not feasible so thank you for preparing a spreadsheet, hopefully it’ll be useful for others who join the reading quest.
    A little side note, though, I am not sure whether this is because I’m on mobile, but when I click the link to the tracker it says file not found.

      I’m sorry you won’t be able join the challenge. Maybe Aentee will do another soon.
      And thank you for letting me know about the link. I’ve fixed it now, so it should work. But let me know if it doesn’t, or if there are any other problems.
