How to:

  1. Advance signup is no longer needed.
  2. Once you have read each book, submit the Century Club Submission to the Membership Secretary.

Rules:

  1. This is an ongoing challenge, no expiration date; however, applicants are encouraged to submit at least one book every six months. If there are no submissions for a period of six months, applications will be considered abandoned and quietly escorted out the kitchen door.
  2. Applications which have gone five months with no activity will be given a 30 day courtesy warning by being highlighted in red.
  3. If you do get deleted for non-activity, you can always just resubmit the form to re-activate your application.
  4. For our purposes, use the year the book was written, not necessarily the year it was published. If in doubt, just use the earliest date on the book's title page.
  5. Books may be read in any order.
  6. Past reading may be submitted.
  7. Authors can be enjoyed multiple times.
  8. Print books, audio books, radio dramatizations, short stories, or e-books may be used. Movies do not count.
  9. Reviews are optional. If you include the URL of your review, a link to it will be provided. Otherwise, a link will be provided to generic information about the title.
  10. Once you achieve full membership (all ten decades), you may modestly post the Mystillery Century Club logo on your blog.

FAQ:


a NOTE to PURISTS: The very first year A.D. began as year 1, as there was no year "0" (I know, I was there). Thus, decades technically begin on Jan. 1 XXX1 and end Dec. 31 XXX0. While I concede the validity of this argument, following that protocol would overly complicate the presentation of this challenge; so for our purposes decades begin on Jan. 1 XXX0 and end Dec. 31 XXX9.
