WINTER 2020 SPELL CHALLENGE : ANTARCTICA, 12/21/20 – 3/20/21
As usual, we have a spelling challenge to go along with Chaitra’s Antarctica challenge. Choose one or more of the following words/phrases and spell them using the first letter of a book’s title (disregard A, An and The) OR the author’s first or last initial.
PLEASE NOTE :
* When using an author name to fill a spot, remember to post a link to the author’s GR page.
* Since this challenge is 3 months long, we ask that you choose words that add up to a minimum of 15 letters.
CHALLENGE RULES :
See this thread for more detailed rules for all CCC challenges.
♦ If you want to participate in this challenge, please sign up by posting the word/s you intend to spell. This gives us a post to link you to, which you can use to update your books as the challenge progresses. No link will be created for you until you post your choice/s.
♦ Unless otherwise noted, books must be at least 150 pages long. (See the link above for rules regarding graphic novels.) Books may only be used for one task in this challenge, but cross-challenge posting is encouraged 🙂 Re-reads are allowed, as long as you read the entire book. You must read at least half of the book AFTER the challenge begins in order to count it for this challenge.
♦ You may use the first letter of the first word in the book’s title (disregard A, An and The) or the author’s first or last initial (middle names or initials can NOT be used.). If you use an author name to fill a spot, remember to post a link to the author’s GR page.
* In the case of a hyphenated first or last name (i.e. Sarah-Kate Lynch, Kate E. Dyer-Seeley, the first letter of the hyphenated name may be used (not the second initial directly following the hyphen).
* If an author uses what appears to be two last names, i.e. Kathy Hogan Trocheck), the last initial of the two names counts.
* For books by authors like Menna van Praag and Tatiana de Rosnay, use your library’s shelving method to determine whether to use the book for a V/P or D/R spot, but be sure to tell us how your library shelves those books.
♦ If you use books that are in a language other than English, please translate those titles into English (even if there is no English title here on GR) for the purposes of our challenges, unless you plan to use that language for the entire challenge. If you do use another language for the whole challenge, please remember that the translations of exempt words/phrases — for example, A, An and The — would be exempt as well.
♦ For each book you read, please post a link to the title, and indicate the author and the date you finished reading it. If you’re using the author’s name to fill a spot, remember to include a link to the author’s name as well.
* If you don’t know how to post a link to the book title or author, see the instructions here: Add a link to the book title and/or author
♦ When you complete the challenge, please copy and paste your entire list as a new message at the end of the challenge thread. If you do this while you still have the Edit window open, it will copy all of your links and formatting. If you don’t repost your list, with appropriate links, your name will not be added to the list of those who have completed the challenge. Please do NOT simply post a link back to your original post.
