You get to read great books from our growing base of authors while taking on a simple, attainable and exciting challenge.
When you have completed the challenge, we will credit up to 45 bonus RA Points into your account.
The challenge runs from October 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015, both dates inclusive.
The challenge consists of two parts.
Minimum criteria to complete the challenge

Note: The main criteria must be fulfilled before you can receive bonus points for the sub criteria.
We recognize that some of you may be busy during this period and as much as you would like to, may be unable to complete the full challenge.
For those who have registered but unable to complete 12 reviews, you can still get a bonus of 5 RA Points as long as you:
- have registered for this event, and
- submit at least 3 reviews during the allotted period.
There is no sub-criteria for this section.

Terms and Conditions
- All authors and reviewers are eligible. To join, simply click on the Register button on this page.
- All books at the site for which a review session is ongoing are included.
- All reviews must be submitted between October 1, 2015 12:00mn EST to December 31, 2015 11:59pm EST to qualify. The official time to follow will be the Reading Alley server time.
IMPORTANT: Reviews should not be sloppily written.
While we encourage more reviews to be submitted to complete the challenge, at the same time, we would like to remind reviewers that we are after quality reviews and hence will strictly adhere to this.
Specifically, reviews should give an overall impression and recommendation, and touch on at least two of the three points below:
- Characters and character development
- Author's writing style and pacing
For additional help on writing review, please check the Reviewer's Help section.
Reviews that do not adhere to the requirements on the preceding point can be rejected by the authors and/or Reading Alley Events (RAE) committee, and any rejected review won't be counted.
The RA Points earned from this challenge is over and above the normal RA Points earned from submitting reviews.
The RA Points will be credited into the qualifying authors' and reviewers' accounts no later than January 10, 2016.
The RAE committee reserves the right to modify the mechanics of the program to ensure the smooth performance of the Year-End Review Challenge.
In cases of disputes, the decision of the RAE committee is final.
