2020 Reading Assignment Challenge



hosted by Berls and Michelle @ Because Reading

Register for your spring semester reading assignment classes!
This year you’ll be registering for classes that fit your reading goals. And the best part? You’re only registering for a semester at a time!
The spring semester is January – April 2020. You’ll come back in April to register for your summer classes (May-August 2020). You’ll do your spring report card the second week of May.
You’ll be back again in August to register for your fall classes (September – December). You’ll do your summer report card the second week of September.
Finally, check back in December to register for the next year! You’ll do your year end report card the second week of January 2020.
Final Exams
Anyone who’s ever been a college student knows that there’s a crazy week at the end of every semester where you cram like crazy to make up for all the times you fell behind over the semester. That final exam (or paper) is your chance to make it right.
So we’ve added a bonus week at the end of every semester for you to cram. Missed a month? Catch up over this week! Whatever you can cram into this week will count and fix the month(s) you messed up.
Meet your professors
You can register for the same classes all year if you want, but you can also switch it up, depending on your life and goals. You can even choose to take a semester or two off!
Professor AuthorLuv
Professor AuthorLuv used to have her own school, where her students we’re required to pick a favorite author and commit to reading all their books over the course of a year (aka The AuthorLuv Challenge). She’s decided to make her life a little easier and just host some classes here instead. She still wants you to pick a favorite author and commit to reading a certain number of books by that author each month, but she’s letting you set your number based on the level course you sign up for.
AuthorLuv Beginner Class (credits: 1) – In the beginner’s course your committing to reading one book a month by your chosen author. You’ll get an A if you read 1 book by that author all 5 months, a B if you read 1 book 4 of the months, a C if you read 1 book 3 of the months, and a D if you read 1 book 2 of the months. Professor AuthorLuv will have to give you an F for anything less.
Professor Genre
Professor Genre is all about choosing a genre/theme. For his classes you’ll commit to reading a certain number of books from one genre each month. Choose your level course to sign up for the number of books you’ll read each month. (theme can be anything from Christmas to reading books with the letter P in the title)
Genre Beginner Class (credits: 1) – In the beginner’s course your committing to reading one book a month in your chosen genre/theme. You’ll get an A if you read 1 book in that genre all 5 months, a B if you read 1 book 4 of the months, a C if you read 1 book 3 of the months, and a D if you read 1 book 2 of the months. Professor Genre will have to give you an F for anything less.
Professor Mix-It-Up
Professor Mix-It-Up wants you to have the freedom to mix-it-up. For her courses you’ll commit to reading a certain number of books from a list that you create in the first month of the course. She’s giving you a lot of freedom; The books can be any genre, any author, any format! But you have to have your list completed and posted by January 31, 2020 and you have to stick to it. Choose your level course to sign up for the number of books you’ll read each month.
Mix-It-Up Beginner Class (credits: 1) – In the beginner’s course your committing to reading one book a month from your list. You’ll get an A if you read 1 book from the list all 5 months, a B if you read 1 book 4 of the months, a C if you read 1 book 3 of the months, and a D if you read 1 book 2 of the months. Professor Mix-It-Up will have to give you an F for anything less.
Professor Ann Thology
Like Professor AuthorLuv, Professor Ann Thology once had her own challenge (A Year in Anthologies), but realized she’d be happier joining these professors than trying to go it solo. Professor Ann Thology works with students who have a tendency to grab those great deals on anthologies, with multiple books in one book… and then forget about them. She’s determined that those purchases will no longer be a waste. Her class is a bit more challenging, because 1 book is actually multiple, but she believes in her students ability to do it. Plus, they get to read shorter books and multiple authors all in one!
Anthology Beginner Class (credits: 1) – In the beginner’s course your committing to reading one anthology a month. You’ll get an A if you read 1 anthology all 5 months, a B if you read 1 anthology 4 of the months, a C if you read 1 anthology 3 of the months, and a D if you read 1 anthology 2 of the months. Professor Ann Thology will have to give you an F for anything less.
There are actually an intermediate and an advanced class for each professor where you can double or triple your classwork and credits.

I'm signing up for Professor Mix-It-Up at the advanced class. That's four books a month for four months.
