A subreddit for the participants of the 52 Book Challenge to discuss their progress and discoveries.
>Q: What are the participation rules?
>A: There are only two rules for participation:
>1. Set a goal to read X number of books in the year (it doesn't have to be 52)
>2. Read that many books
>Q: What are the rules for posting?
>1. Each Sunday, the moderators make a weekly post, which is stickied at the top of the page. Members can participate in that post to discuss what you've read, and what you're planning to read.
>2. During the last week of the year, the moderators post "round up" posts for lists of books completed, favorites, least favorites, etc.
>3. Please check for round-up and list posts before making a new one. We try to keep this sub fairly focused on the weekly discussions. We will remove individual posts that are more appropriate for the aggregated threads to keep the front page clear.
>Q: I just found this sub. Can I start even though it's not Week 1?
>A: Yes, we won't hold it against you.
>Q: Do you have to start and finish a book each week?
>A: No. We all get into reading slumps at some point in the year. The goal is to complete your challenge by the end of the year.
>Q: I'm reading a book with multiple novels contained in one volume. How should I count it?
>A: Count each one individually. Or count the collection as a whole. It's entirely up to you.
>Q: Can I count a novella as a book?
>A: Yes. Unless you don't want to, in which case don't.
>Q: Do graphic novels count?
>A: If you want to count graphic novels, do it! Are you sensing a theme here?
>Q: What about an audiobook?
>A: Some people think that listening to an audiobook is not the same as reading the book. Some of those same people are probably sociopaths. What do I know? Count them if you are not one of those people.
>Q: Can I count a short story?
>A: This is probably stretching it, but you know what - it's your challenge, count whatever you feel is appropriate. The goal is to read more.
