Trapped on Treasure Island | Floyd Gottfredson
post image

Hey everyone! If you're participating in #Scarathlon2022, considering joining us in #trappedonanisland. Let someone help you choose between those spooky reads.

Here's how it works.

- Those who would want to participate will create a shelf on their Goodreads called "trapped on an island" or for this month you can also use a shelf called "scarathlon2022".

aperfectmjk - You will then add books to this shelf that have been on your TBR the longest that you want to tackle. Or you can just do spooky selections for #Scarathlon2022. The more books on your shelf the better, this keeps things fun for your match. 2mo
aperfectmjk - Each month at the start of the month you will be assigned a match.
- You will pick 5 books for your match from their "trapped on an island" shelf or #Scarathlon2022 shelf.
- You will create a post that showcases the 5 books you selected for your match and tag your match. Please keep in mind these selections need to be made quickly to give your match time to get their reading in.
aperfectmjk - You must read at least one book chosen for you. It's up to you if you choose to read more. The idea is that you're stuck on an island and these 5 books are your only options for reading.

If you want to participate, start working on your goodreads shelf now. Post a link to your shelf in the comments below.

aperfectmjk @Nessavamusic your profile is currently private on Goodreads. We cannot view your shelf. 2mo
aperfectmjk @JoeMo are you going to add more books to your list? Otherwise, you have just picked your own books. lol 2mo
JoeMo @aperfectmjk maybe it‘s the power of suggestion…or more likely the result of prolonged and severe sleep deprivation! 😂 here‘s a corrected list (I think/hope): https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/3295233-joe?ref=nav_mybooks&shelf=scarathl... (edited) 2mo
Nessavamusic @aperfectmjk fixed so Goodreads members can see! 2mo
