House Cup Reading Challenge | Progress Updates

Last week I signed up a to the House Cup Reading Challenge. I committed to taking part in the readathon over the next month, and have realised that I need a post to keep track of my progress! There is a set of rules, challenges, and scoring systems that can be found on The House Cup Reading Challenge sign up and TBR post. So, in an effort to take part and track my progress, I’m creating a master post to track my scores throughout this readathon.

So, an update master post. I tried this through #TheReadingQuest, which was a similar readathon earlier in the year. This readathon has a scoring system, and actually has a competition element, so I need a progress post to keep track of my progress and support my team (#TeamGryffindor!) I’ll update when I choose and complete a book and calculate my house points as I go through the challenges. There is also points (up to a maximum of 20) for social media musings and pictures, so I’ll try and keep a tab on that too. As I go along, I will also strikethrough any completed challenges (too keep me going as much as anything else). At the end, I’m going to report back to my house head girl Lauren @BetweenDPages.
