Oh woe is me, oh how dreadful this will be. Yes, yes – I am being a bit over dramatic here. But please just put yourself in my paws for a minute or two. Just a couple of hours ago, I told you how grateful I am that my Mommy managed to finished her Alphabet Reading Challenge 2020. She got distracted by no less than 25 book of the planned 54 to make up a grand total of 79 books.
Apparently she now thinks she’s the queen of all Reading Challenges and decided to sign up for 4 (four) ????, Reading Challenges and aim to read 80 (eighty) 10 x ????????, books in 2021. Good Grief Woman. You do know that you still have to work, feed all of us, uphold your social calendar and pay attention to Daddy??
Maybe I should rather just give her the benefit of the doubt. She has proven to be able to complete a task at hand, even though it might be in some unconventional ways. So let’s see what she’s planning.
(You are all of course aware that if these challenges do materialize successfully, I will take all the credit. If not, it’s all on her).
It doesn’t appear as if there will be any international travelling any time soon. Especially not travelling from South Africa. Therefore, Mommy decided that we will undertake a marvelous tour around the world in the form of eighty books. Each one in/from/going to a different destination. Quite similar to Phileas Fogg in Around the World in Eigthy Days by Jules Verne.
Purring – Read 1-10 cat mysteries
Kneading – Read 11-20 cat mysteries
Meowing – Read 21-30 cat mysteries
Catnip – Go crazy and read at least 31 and go as high as you’d like – the sky is the limit!
Let’s go with 1 -10. I’m sure Yvonne won’t mind if we upgrade, by any chance, later in the year.
- FIVE STAR (DELUXE ENTOURAGE): Read at least five books by different European authors or books set in different European countries.
- FOUR STAR (HONEYMOONER): Read four qualifying books.
- THREE STAR (BUSINESS TRAVELER): Read three qualifying books.
- TWO STAR (ADVENTURER): Read two qualifying books.
- ONE STAR (PENSIONE WEEKENDER): Read just one qualifying book.
There are also a grand prize to be won here! We can so do this. But if we will qualify for the prize, the Good Lord above only knows. I’ve got no doubt that we can win this, the problem is just if we will be able to claim our prize in SA. What’s allowed and what’s not allowed, changes on a daily schedule.
Oh yes, we will sign up for the Deluxe Entourage.
