Habitica Guild

July 18, 2016

sea-creatureI’ve talked about Habitica before. It’s the website/app that helps you turn real life into a game in order to help you form good habits and get things done. I tend to refer to it as gamifying being an adult.
You get a tiny avatar that can find pets through loot drops. Loot drops happen when you complete a task on your to-do list or check off one of your daily habits. You can also get your friends involved through guilds and parties. Parties are relatively small groups that get together to do quests. The more things you accomplish each day the more damage you do to the boss. However, if you fail to complete some of your daily tasks, you and your party members take damage. Guilds, on the other hand, are large groups of people that have come together out of a common interest.
Rock_scene_by_cosmic_caterpillar-d8gjmgc.pngWhy am I telling you all this? Well, I started a guild. It’s called the Little Professor since that’s the name of the bookstore I work at. The guild is designed to celebrate books. We’ve got a reading challenge running until the end of August. It’s designed to expand your literary horizons.
The challenge includes:


  • Give or loan someone a book you love

  • Discuss a book you have read with someone else

  • Read a book by someone from a different country

  • Ask for a book recommendation and actually read the book

  • Read a book with a color in the title

  • Read a book outside your usual genre (non-fiction, mystery, romance, sci-fi, whatever it is you normall read, grab something else.)

  • Read a book by someone of a different gender

  • Read a book in translation

  • Read a book set at least 100 years away from the present moment (forward or backward)

  • Read a book by a person of a different race

  • Look through your shelves for books you haven’t read

    If you’re on Habitica and this looks like fun, then please come join us!
