A Million More Pages - Summer Song Shuffle

Summer Song Shuffle hosted by A Million More Pages on Goodreads.

This is a challenge that can be done alone or as a group. I have chosen to do it alone but I also don't think I will make a very high level.

♫♫♫ Summer Song Shuffle ♫♫♫
Starts: August 22, 2015
Ends: October 31, 2015


Certain songs just feel like summer, don't they? Below is a list of songs that some people might associate with summer for different reasons. Roll the random number generator (link below) for each book to find out which song you are going to "listen to". You *must* keep your number and fulfill the task before moving on to another song. You may skip a song if you really can't do or don't like the task but you may only use so many skips per level (see below). If you decide to skip a song, please keep a record of it. If you land on a song you've already listened to, roll again, if you'd like. OR you can "repeat" the task, using another book.

*Since I'm posting this SO late in the season, you may work on this with a partner (up to 5 people, including yourself), in order to maximize those levels for the badges we all love. You will each earn credit for the level you complete as partners. If you choose to work with a partner(s), please keep let me know who you team up with when you sign up. Anyone can play together; you do not have to be in the same cabin. If you don't have a specific friend to sign up with, let me know if you want to be partnered up randomly and with how many other people (maximum of 4 other people). I will partner people up as you sign up. If you work with partners, I will set up a thread where you can discuss your rolls and who will read for which task. You can split them up however you want, but everyone must read a certain number of books based on levels - see below.

Levels:
☀ 1 = 5 songs (may skip one time) [each person must read 1 book; the remainder can be split however you like]
☀ 2 = 10 songs (2 skips) [at least 2 books per person, etc]
☀ 3 = 15 songs (3 skips) [at least 2 books per person, etc]
☀ 4 = 20 songs (3 skips) [at least 3 books per person, etc]
☀ 5 = 25 songs (4 skips) [at least 4 books per person, etc]
☀ 6 = 30 songs (4 skips) [at least 5 books per person, etc]
☀ 7 = 35 songs (5 skips) [at least 6 books per person, etc]
☀ 8 = 35 songs (NO skips = all 35 tasks OR 35 total tasks with repeated tasks) [at least 6 books per person, etc]
