Will you take the £5 challenge?
The feel of a new book in your hands is great, isn’t it? But sometimes you just don’t have the money – sad face. The question then springs into your mind, can you wait another week for a book? Most of the time the answer is no, you can’t. So, whilst I was comfy one evening I thought about the £5 challenge.
The challenge, if you choose to accept it, is that you only have £5 to spend on books (obviously) but to make it more exciting there will be one topic you have to follow. One week I may suggest that you can only purchase Young Adult, another week only books by the author Cecelia Ahern or even, just books with blue covers. I thought that this element would just add variety to the challenge and make it more like a Treasure Hunt. Plus, you may read something you’ve never thought about before and really enjoy it.
Do you want to get involved? Then read a few FAQ’s below and spread the word! Please use the hashtag #5poundchallenge (even if your currency is not pounds). I will reveal the first topic you need to follow Monday 20th October on my Twitter @abookandtea.
– Is this challenge only for paperback books?
Not at all. There’s no restriction to the format, it can be Paperback, Hardback or even Kindle.
– My currency is not in British Pounds (£)
That’s ok! It can be any currency! You could do the €5 challenge or the $5 challenge, the list is endless.
– The books I’ve purchased total £4.30 (or another amount), is that ok?
Of course, it is! As long as you don’t go over £5, that’s great! It means you can spend the rest on sweets or put it in your Piggy bank.
I look forward to seeing you all get involved!
Disclaimer: In no way am I suggesting that you have to spend £5 all the time on books, it’s entirely up to you have often you participate and how much you spend.
