Rawk: Getting Acquainted

Rawk-A-Tiers Getting Acquainted hosted by Rawk-A-Tiers on Goodreads.

This is an ongoing challenge and every so often we will get a question to answer and we then have to find books to fit with the answers.

This is our group's answer to the Meet and Greet Challenge.

Here's how it works.

☯ Each week, there will be a trivia question for the members of the challenge to answer. The question will be posted sometime Friday of the week preceding the challenge week. Participants have until midnight Sunday to answer it. At 6am Monday the challenge will be declared open and no more answers may be posted into the thread.

All players who respond to the Question of the Week by the Sunday deadline will receive 1 point for their answer!

☯ Once the challenge is open, each player who wishes to compete in that week's meet and greet will read through the thread of answers, select a member response, and choose a book that fits that response in some way. You are allowed unlimited freedom in terms of creativity for your response, but you must be able to justify it in your post.

☯ Once you've read your book, you will create a new post with your book details in that week's question thread, along with the name of the member who inspired your choice and a short explanation of how your book fits their response.

☯ You are welcome to post as many responses to the Get Acquainted Challenge as you wish, but you must select a different member response for each book selected and you may not repeat a Q#-Player pairing.

For example: if you choose Q#1-Tara Jo, you may not repeat that selection, but you may choose another response for Q#1 and read another book choice.

☯ Keep all your books for a particular Question in a single post on the same thread together so you can see which ones you've answered.

☯ You are not required to post a book for every response. You may post a book for as many responses as you wish.

BUT . . . You must post your homework points for Question #1 before moving on to Question #2

☯ AND . . . Once you have posted your Q#1 points, you may not go back and edit or add any additional points from that task.

☯ You may, of course, post your answer response to any Question that is opened without having your homework points posted for any or all of the previous questions. In other words, you may respond to Q#2 without posting points for Q#1.
