As you may know if you say my Sign-Up & TBR post yesterday, I am currently taking part in #TheReadingQuest, a readathon which is running from Sunday 13th August through to Sunday 10th September. This post is my place I will record all my progress – the books I’ve read, the challenges I’ve completed, and the points I’ve accrued over the course of the quest. I’ll probably be updating this periodically as I finish a book, as much as to keep myself accountable as anything else!
Experience & Health Points
For reference, everyone starts out with 10 Experience Points (EXP). For every book finished you get +10 EXP (unless it’s graphic novels/manga then it’s +5 EXP). However, if it’s a marginalised author, it’s +20 EXP for every completed book.
Once a Character Quest is complete, you earn another +50 EXP. Additional Character Quests completed before the Quest ends will gain +30 EXP. Characters level up with every +50 EXP.
Everyone begins with 10 Health Points (HP). Every 10 pages read or 20 minutes listened to an audiobook gains +1HP (unless it’s a graphic novel/manga, it’s 20 pages to gain +1HP).
Tweeting on #TheReadingQuest hashtag or Instagram photos of books/TBR pile earns +1HP each. You can gain a maximum of +20HP from Social Media interactions.
