FALL 2021 SPELL CHALLENGE : THE IVY LEAGUE
DURATION : September 21 – December 20, 2021
This complements Suzanne’s Ivy League and Seven Sisters challenge. Choose one or more of the following related words and spell them using the author’s first or last initial or the first letter of a book’s title (disregard A, An and The). When using the author name to fill a spot, please remember to include a link to the author’s GR page. Our usual spelling rules apply (see below). Because this challenge is 3 months long, we encourage you to 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 80 pages 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.).
* 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.
♦ A, AN and THE should be disregarded if they are the first word in the title. If reading a book whose title is in a language other than English, the articles equivalent to these words should be disregarded.
