Magical Read-a-Thon

When I saw that Kathy @ Books &Munches was doing a Harry Potter readathon to get OWLS, I just had to join in. This was originally posted by Book Roast. And it sounds like fun. It runs from April 2nd to the 29th. You can only use a book once for each challenge. In other words, you can't read The Lost Symbol and have it count for Ancient Runes and Defense Against the Dark Arts. You get an OWL when you complete each chalkenge. Got it? Great! Have fun!

GRADES

Fail Grades:

T = Troll: Did not show up at your OWL examinations (Didn’t start a challenge)
D = Dreadful: Start but not finished an OWL task
P = Poor: Sit only 1 OWL

Pass Grades:

A = Acceptable: Sit (and pass) at least 2 OWLs (complete 2 challenges)
E = Exceeds Expectations: Sit (and pass) at least 3 OWLs (complete 3 challenges)
O = Outstanding: Sit (and pass) at least 5 OWLs (complete 5 challenges)
