Book Racing

If you’ve ever read a book that you couldn’t put down or simply found yourself losing chunks of time to the world inside pages, you’re ready for a book race. All you need is someone to share that book with. No, I don’t mean you’ll each have a copy and will share moments of ‘oh my god I can’t believe Richard talked back to the enchantress and shot her down!’ You are two people; there’s one book.

How does this work? Well, there are some basic rules.

  1. The book needs to be new to both people. No fun if one of you already knows what’s going to happen.
  2. Once you start reading, the other person cannot take the book from you unless you have stopped reading for 30 minutes.
  3. The book stays in a neutral agreed upon location unless there’s an agreement.
  4. If you are ahead of the other person you damn well better hint at spoilers and taunt them. Just don’t actually spoil anything.
  5. No losing the other person’s spot. It’s a dick move.
  6. This is best played through a multi-book series.
