OWLS 2022

  •  This is the Harry Potter challenge hosted at HPOOTP Facebook page.  I want to be more actively involved in this page this year.  They do a wonderful job at the creative side of the challenge and there are lots of different categories and varieties of books selected by participants.   

For a full list of challenges I found for 2022 see this blog entry.

The instructions from their page:

The Ordinary Wizarding Levels (O.W.L.s) Reading Challenge
Each of the 12 classes have 5 prompts. You can decide which grades to go for in which classes and which classes you want to attempt an OWL in (receive a passing grade). Thus, you can build the challenge to the number of books you want to read! For example, you can choose to do only 1 subject and go for an O grade (5 books), or you could attempt to earn 3 passing grades in 3 subjects (9 books), or you can choose to go for all 12 subjects & all prompts (60 books) – or anywhere in between!
O.W.L. Grades are as follows:
Failing Grades:
Troll (T) : Start a prompt in a subject, but don’t finish any
Dreadful (D): Finish 1 prompt in a subject
Poor (P): Finish 2 prompts in a subject
*Passing Grades: *
Acceptable (A): Finish 3 prompts in a subject
Exceeds Expectations (E): Finish 4 prompts in a subject
Outstanding (O): Finish 5 prompts in a subject.
Prompts do NOT have to be completed in order. While the challenge is to read unique books for each prompt, this is your challenge and you can make the rules fit as you’d like. Any format of book (audiobook, physical book, ebook, comic, etc) counts–our rule of thumb is if you can mark it as ‘read’ on a book tracking site, it counts. Again, this is your challenge and you’re free to interpret the rules and prompts as you see fit.
