** February 2016 Challenge – Twister Reading Challenge **

goodreads The Aussie Readers group on Goodreads has the February Challenge – Twister Reading Challenge;

How many of you remember playing Twister with your friends at sleepovers? This month we will play a Twister themed game…
A traditional Twister mat has sixteen dots arranged in four rows of four and are coloured red, yellow, green, and blue. Then, you spin to see which hand or foot you place where. So, if “Right Hand Red” is called, you must get your right hand to that colour without your butt hitting the floor. (of course if you get entwined with that cute boy from geography class so much the better)

Since we can’t play the real version, we have assigned categories/tasks to each option and we will use a randomizer to see how they fit together. Clear as mud? Stay with me…

Each colour will represent a genre.

1. Red – Young Adult (YA)
2. Blue – Mystery
3. Green – Historical
4. Yellow – Contemporary

Then, in Twister we would be told to use our Right or Left Hand, or our Right or Left Foot. So now we need to assign something to our hands and feet. So here are the hand/foot options:

1. Right Hand – Read a book with an author whose First or Last name begins with “B”
2. Left Hand – Read a book with an author whose First or Last name begins with “M”
3. Right Foot – Read a book with an author whose First or Last name begins with “P”
4. Left Foot – Read a book with an author whose First or Last name begins with “S”

The goal is to play at least one game in a month (4 books) – so we will need to spin 4 sets of numbers to get our 4 books (please make sure at least one is by an Aussie author) – of course the over achievers can do more.

1.) 3,3 Historical with an author whose First or Last name begins with “P”
