SBC- How does this look?

I can't remember who normally does this. So please don't be offended that I took it on myself. Using Slytherpuff's list I came up with this.

What says NBC?

5 Point   /25

Read a classic

Read a book with a pastel colored cover (light pink, green, purple, etc)

Read a book by an author that is new to you

Reread a novel from your childhood

Read a book that has less than 1,000 reviews

10 Point    /50

Read a book being given away on World Book Night

Read a book with a title that starts with S, B or C ('The' before the word is ok) Ex: The Song

Read a book that is part of a series

National Library week is April 14-20 - Read a library book

15 Point    /75

Read a book with one of Sassypants' words in the title: http://community.thenest.com/cs/ks/forums/thread/71777133.aspx

Reread a book from your high school English class. Post a review on the board, and state whether or not your opinion changed on the book, whether you missed anything the first way around, etc
